    I'm going to get the Littmann Soft Touch Cardiology from and have it personalized to try to keep it from growing legs! My husband said I could get which ever one I want as long as I keep it around my neck!

    hi all, we had a nursing meeting today with the head instructor and she said we only need the one prong stethoscopes

    if that makes any sense. now i don't know whether to use the littman or the cheaper one that i have.

    guess i will wait and see, maybe use both and then decide.

    I was just looking at my syllabus for one of my nursing courses and I need a stethoscope also, plus a tape measure, pen light and a small ruler. It says a stethoscope with a bell and diaphrahm. Do they all have a bell and diaphrahm?

    I can get these things at the bookstore, but should I try to get it somewhere else? I didn't realize I needed one yet since I don't have clinicals, but I do have lab so I guess we will use it there.

    I also need two more books, yikes!!!

    I am going to go broke buying all this stuff.

    I would love to have a Littman Cardiology Stethoscope! But miine I have now is ok...
    Good Luck on starting classes Monday Marie and Debralyn! LPN school is great! Just don't freak out and DON'T fall behind!
    Keep me updated on how your doing Marie! And you know where to find me!

    PS: Student Deb~ No, they don't all have a bell and diaphragm. A bell and diaphragm are the ones with the end you can turn is smaller than the other...
    and some just have 1 flat listening area at the bottom that you listen through...
    I hardly make sense to myself....hope you can understand me!

    Question about watches, I am required to have a watch with a "sweep hand", then they College sent out another letter with our supplies and it said "second hand". So what do I need? Is there a difference? And if so is there a web site that sells them? I love buying online!

    Tah and happy studies
