I got the clipboard at the uniform shop that sells our uniforms....hardly ever use it though.......You would be surprised at the mass of items that I go through....
copier paper, index cards,(for drugs and dx) tapes and batteries for the recorder, sturdy backpack, PENS! stapler, highlighters, small note pad (fits in my pocket at clinical) paper clips, white out, (amust for care plans
!) scientific calculator, hole punch, binders, notebokks (for lecture) several NCLEX review books, ADVIL, ponytail holders and barretts (for clinical) and so much more.....the list goes on, but these are the things that I use the most!
