I've recently graduated nursing school and passed my boards. I am starting my first ever nursing job this month!!! I will be working in the Cardiac IMU (step down from ICU). I've done my research, and it looks like the Littmann Cardiology IV
is the way I'd like to go. I have an MDF from nursing school, but there have been times where my classmates could clearly hear something that I couldn't pick up with my stethoscope. As a new nurse, with my first job, is it worth going for the best? Or should I start out with something simpler that still does the trick? The cost isn't really a factor, but the appearance is. I hated the odd bell shape on some of the other options.
