Back to School Essentials: Nursing School Edition

Back to school and back in action! Gear up for the new semester at nursing school with our essential supplies for a successful nursing education. At Clove, we understand the challenges of being a nursing student, so we've curated a list of essentials to make your healthcare journey easier. From staying organized to taking care of yourself, we've got you covered.

1. Plan to Stay Organized

As a nursing student, staying organized is vital. An academic planner can be crucial to your success in nursing school. Make sure you know what days you have classes, labs, homework due, and all other essential due dates are written down so nothing is forgotten. Of course, you can use any academic planner you want, but RekMed’s student nurse planner is our favorite (for obvious reasons).

2. Support From the Bottom Up

Comfortable and high-quality nursing shoes are a must-have for every nursing student. Although you may not be a nurse quite yet, you'll spend a considerable amount of time on your feet during your nursing education.Standing for long periods of time is something that will definitely be part of the curriculum. Clove’s all white nursing school shoes are designed to provide superior comfort and support while adhering to nursing school dress codes.

3. Compress to Decompress

If you’re already in nursing school, I’m sure we don’t have to lecture you on what compression socks do. These socks play a crucial role in improving blood circulation, reducing inflammation, and preventing leg vein issues caused by prolonged standing. For our nursing students, we encourage you to invest in a pair of compression socks to ensure optimal comfort and well-being throughout your nursing practice.

4. Stay Hydrated!

Staying hydrated in general is so important for our bodies. It is especially important to stay hydrated when in class for hours a day. Having a reusable water bottle with you is not only great for staying hydrated, it is also great for the environment! Remember, a well-hydrated nursing student is a focused and energized student.

5. Tune it Out

A nursing school essential that many might not think of would be noise canceling headphones. While studying for important tests, noise-canceling headphones can be a game-changer. Block out distractions and create a peaceful study environment wherever you go. Our favorites are the SONY Noise Canceling Headphones, that even have built-in Alexa!

Other than the obvious nursing school essential supplies, like scrubs, stethoscopes, and laptops, we wanted to provide you with some often overlooked items that will significantly enhance your nursing education journey as you become a member of our health care services. Don’t forget, if you get overwhelmed or stressed to breathe through it and remind yourself why you are doing it! Try out the Calm app for guided meditations, white noise, and stress-relieving methods.

At Clove, we're committed to supporting you every step of the way on your path to becoming a nurse. Shop our wide range of nursing student supplies, including pens, nursing uniform essentials, and shoes, to equip yourself for success in your nursing education.
