Stethoscopes

Posted

I will be starting my nursing classes in Jan. I am starting to buy my supplies, and I would like to know what is a good stethoscope for nursing school. Tell me the name, price, and where you purchased it at. Thanks.

I would choose a Littmann Lightweight II SE stethoscope. These are quality, have good sound, are perfect for basic assessments, and can be purchased for less than $50 at sites such as Amazon.com. Also, one cannot beat Littmann's warranties on their products.
