How many uniforms and offical jackets do I need?

  1. I just got my registration information. The school wants all the forms completed before we come to nursing registration next week. I only have 1 day of clinical/per week. Should I buy only two uniforms or should I get more?

    I have clinical 2 days/week this semester and I only have one uniform. I am planning to buy another top tomorrow so I can have a different shirt for each day I go. I have only needed one lab jacket and it gets used one day/week. We also have to have a "dress uniform" for our dedication and graduation ceremonies, but I will get that when I get to those. I don't see the need for more than one uniform if you are only in clinical one day/week.

    i guess the main question often do you do laundry...i have 2 sets and 2 days of clinical per week...still wind up washing them the night before

    oh, i do know that some people keep a spare in their car/locker/whatever in case they get messy...that pretty much depends on where your clinical is (cause if you're me you're delivering meals-on-wheels and doing blood pressures - not much chance of getting to messy)

    anyhow, i think your 2 sets/1 day/ week should be fine

    1 jacket should be fine too...

    good luck in school!:d

    I would only get 2 sets and one coat. You can always get more if you need them. Besides, they're so cotton picking expensive. And, when you're done, you will burn them anyway, so why spend a lot?
