What are you bringing to work?

I've noticed a trend in car forums where users like to include what parts they've installed and what things they have done to their cars. Some uses get quite detailed while others prefer to stay simple with their equipment. So it got me thinking, what are the experienced nurses, new-grad nurses, CNA/LVN, students, etc bringing to the floor? From the detailed like watches, socks, and pens, to the basic pieces of equipment like shoes, scrubs, and stethoscopes. Now I ask, when you walk into your facility, what is on you?

I'm wearing Grey's Anatomy Active and Jockey scrubs

Littmann Classic II stethoscope

Nike Lunar Flyknit 3

Nike Elite socks

G-Shock watch

Pilot V7 pens

Nursing pocket-kit with shears, multicolor pen, penlight, with extra free pockets

Notebook, clipboard, protein bars, and a backpack
