This is my last semester before I graduate, and I have just started carrying a tote bag - too much stuff without it!
My purse, drug handbook
, med-surg reference handbook, EKG handbook, stress ball from my instructor, stethescope pieces, stethescope hip clip, stethescope, stethescope clip-on clock/stopwatch/alarm, watch, badge, and all the stuff that gets put in my pockets when I show up: pens, highlighter, Sharpie, pen light, hemostat, bandage scissors, alcohol swabs, sugar packets (in case I miss a meal...), and bandage tape.
All this goes on my shoulder when I walk, and my paperwork is in one of those storage clipboards and I just carry it in my other hand. Works beautifully!
