Programs That May Be Currently Accepting Applicants

Listed below are helpful resources compiled from around the web to help you get the most out of your studies and career as a Nurse.

The resources on this page are resources I personally use, or are essential to nursing like stethoscopes.  (I personally use the Littmann Classic II)  I want this page to actually be a helpful resource, rather than crammed with stuff you don’t really need.

FAFSA

FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is how you get grants and loans from the government and some private loan companies.  If you need financial assistance for getting your BSN, then fill out a FAFSA.  As the name implies, filling out the form is totally free.  Once the form has been processed, you will receive a response from the government detailing what grants or loans are available to you.  Remember, if you get a loan there are repayments that will need to be made and it is not free money.

NCLEX Study Guides and NCLEX Tips

Saunders Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RN Examination, 5th Edition
-This is one of the essential products I used to pass the NCLEX.  Price is great (less than $30) for great material

Mosby’s Review Cards for the NCLEX-RN® Examination, 3e
– These Flashcards really helped to get into NCLEX test-taking mode.  I used to study these on the bus on my way to clinicals.  Super helpful

 

Nursing Gear

Stethoscopes

Littman Stethoscopes

3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope – The Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope is probably the industry leader in quality and functionality.  A superb stethoscope with outstanding acoustics!

3M Littmann Classic II S.E. Stethoscope – You really can’t go wrong with the Littmann Classic II.  Littmann Stethoscopes are the industry leader and Littman Classic II is an excellent choice to balance functionality and price (less than $70).

3M Littmann Lightweight II S.E. Stethoscope – Very similar to the Littmann Classic II S.E. is the Lightweight version.  The diaphragm on this stethoscope is made of fiberglass rather than metal resulting in a much lighter weight.  For under $50 this stethoscope is the right choice to get you started in nursing!

Scrubs

Amazon.com – Amazon has the widest variety and best selection of scrubs that I know of.  If they don’t fit, their no hassle return policy is super easy.

Grey’s Anatomy – A bit more on the spendy side, but I think you get what you pay for.  These scrubs are comfortable and can take the beating a nurse gets handed each shift. (Scrub Tops, Scrub pants)

Shoes

Every nurse gets their own opinion on best shoes for the job, but these are some of the perennial favorites.  Have a pair you like better?  Let us know and we’ll add it to the list.

Dansko – Who decided that Dansko’s could be so awesome?  Well, they are.

Also, did you know that as a student you can get Amazon Prime for half price?! Only $49 a year
