    Has anyone looked at shoes for nursing school? The information packet says that we can have white professional shoes or all white leather tennis shoes. Does anyone know if they white professional shoes have to be all white or can the soles be black?

    I have tried on Dansko and Sanita shoes and I believe that my feet are too wide for them. I have also tried on Alegria ones and they seem very comfy. I am thinking of ordering some of the Alegria shoes and maybe a pair of Skechers as well.

    These are the Alegria shoes I want - I may email Valerie re: the white sole.

    If you are looking for wide widths in athletic shoes, New Balance also makes them. Not sure about the all white part, that may be harder to track down.

    I love danskos but I refuse to pay that much for shoes I'll only wear one day a week and never wear after nursing school. I bought these at scrubs etc the girl at the store said they were pretty popular and comfortable. Klogs Unisex Boca Nursing Shoe | allheart.com

    Sketchers makes an all-white shoe, you can search on amazon for nursing shoes. I think it has to be all white but I'm not sure. I do remember at orientation that we were told that even the logo had to be white and could not have any color to it. I'd send an email before I purchased if you have doubts.

    Maybe you all can tell me if you like this idea or not. I was thinking of creating a separate post where accepted & wait listed students can post their scores, program/campus and the date they got the notice. I know I was scouring over previous year's posts looking for this information, and thought it might be nice to for the Fall '13 and Spring '14 classes to get an idea.

    Any thoughts?

    Good idea...I'll see if I can do a similar one for fall 2012

    I went yesterday and did my fingerprinting so I can get the background check done. I made the appt. the same day we had orientation and the closest opening they had was just yesterday...I hope I get my blue card in time!

    Yep. The girl at Scrubs Etc. also had me try on the Klogs as well. They were comfortable, but I didn't buy them because she said that they shouldn't be big in the back like other clogs by Dansko and Sanita, but they were on me. I may just end up going with a white tennis shoe. I've seen some by Skechers and some Saucony ones as well. I'm not a huge fan of New Balance, but Saucony has always been good to me with their running shoes, so I may opt for them.

    I did the same. Mine was done last friday (10/12). I'm sure you'll be alright. It probably doesn't take as long as they say but use that timeframe as a "just in case" measure.

    I was kind of confused though. Past threads had said people were getting blue cards before they received acceptance letters. If you have to do the background check to get the blue card and you don't get the information to do the background check until orientation/or sometimes after acceptance, then how did people get them prior to - unless they are an LVN? I was thinking it had something to do with that FERPA form but that doesn't seem to be the case.
