Shoes for Nurses
Here she comes…all dressed in white! No, not bride-zilla…worse. A Nursing Student! Me! And I find myself doing the same exact things that I thought were hilarious when my sister was in nursing school.
Like many nurses, the search for the “perfect” shoe has been an ongoing adventure for me. Most of the time, I try new shoes, they end up hurting and I switch with little or no fallout…except for the time my shoes completely embarrassed me AND hindered my nursing.
I remember I used to tell new grads and students that the most important piece of equipment a floor nurse can have is a good pair of shoes. Actually, that is just good advice for life. But to make it through a full twelve hour shift, that good pair of shoes can make or break your day.
