:D Any suggestions for a good nursing shoe that is not too expensive? The ADN program that I am starting in the fall requires us to have "nursing shoes" not "tennis shoes". Anything that looks like a tennis shoe is not acceptable. I was thinking of trying "Nursemates". :confused:

Just from experience, I have tried both Nursemates and Rockers. I have to say that I prefer Rockers. You can get them for a decent price if you look around. Try the link on the homepage and click under Commercial Business on Apparel. Sometimes you can find good deals online.

Hope this helps!

I have worn both Rockers and Nursemates. They both suck! Try going to K Mart. Their Cobbie Cuddler line has white shoes for nursing and are 20 bucks a pair.

I have Cobbie Cuddlers too! They are ok for a nursing shoe, and since you can't wear tennis shoes, I'd say go for it!

Lisa it could be worse. You could be a male looking for "Nursing" shoes. Very few choices and all of them are uncomfortable!
