    - My Adidas worked fine. Your feet will hurt regardless, and the inserts are just a good way to waste $20.

    What supplies should I get?
    - your school should supply a nurse pack. Check to see what that includes, but make sure you get a good stethescope (Littman), a BP cuff, bandage scissors, and a penlight. Sportsbras are great under scrubs; no straps falling down while you're elbow-deep in poo.

    What helpful books should I read before starting?
    - Slow down. You'll have plenty of reading soon enough.

    What digtal tape recorder is the best?
    - dunno. mine was a waste of $, since I never used it.

    Did you guys use a bookbag, or one of the rollling ones?
    - I just used a tote bag

    Congrats on Mercer! I will see you in the Fall. By the way, you do need a PDA of some type. I got an ipod touch this weekend.

    mfisher i will see you thanks!! I will be getting the ipod touch!! I can't wait to get it. I fell in love with it. When I get mine let's talk about what to put on there. I have have a list of apps already. I know that the school will give us nursing centeral and I was already looking at that one.
