Like you never heard this statement before, but here goes..... I need help with the purchase of a stethoscope. I will be starting my nursing program in Sept. and I need to purchase a Stethoscope. My Aunt would like to purchase me one and she is EXTREMELY well off and money has never been a concern. So do I join the rank and file of my classmates and go for the Littmann Classic II SE or upgrade and go for the Littmann Cardiology III. I know the Cardiology is a little a heavier and top of the line, but is it overkill for a entry level nursing student!!! (plus I wouldn't want to look like a little snot on my clinicals with a $150.00 piece of equipment around my neck
Any input would be appreciated. Thanks so much and have a great day.
