The Top 20 Essentials You will Need For Your Nursing Degree

Following on from the last post & the number 1 thing to do before starting your degree, I wanted to share with you the top 20 essential items to help prepare you for uni. This list was compiled by current student nurses, & newly qualified nurses, who wanted to share what they couldn’t have survived without!

Even if you have already started your nursing degree, this free download can still help you, as there may be something on the list you hadn’t thought of or didn’t know where to buy.

When I first started my degree I had so many questions. Did I need to bring my laptop to uni? Or just bring a pen & notebook? What’s a trade union & why do I need to join one? What did I need for placement? I no idea what nursing shoes even were, let alone where to find the right ones! That’s why I created this free download to help you, just click on the link below for free instant access.

The essentials list has been divided into 3 parts:

1. What you will need for university.

2. What is required for clinical placement.

3. What you will need to manage your home life & finances.

Of course many items apply to all 3 areas, so will be good investments at the start of your degree to carry you through. You may be surprised to find many things you already have, but some may need upgrading to meet the demands of clinical placement or university work.

The free download also includes links on where to find & buy things online, & also how to get discounts & save money across a range of other essentials such as food, travel & clothes!

If you can buy what you need before starting your degree you will save time, money & stress! However it is possible to get things as you go along if that suits you better. It will also be helpful to share with friends & family who may be looking to buy you a gift to celebrate passing exams & being accepted at uni.
