The nursing gear you can’t live without…at a price you can live with

We almost didn’t put prices on this article, considering how quickly these items fluctuate (especially around sales seasons). But it’s nice to have a range, so consider these “suggested retail prices.” This checklist is entirely based on what nurses tell us are their favorite things (aside from raindrops on roses). Got a favorite thing of your own? Send us a note and tell us who you are and why you love that thing. We just may add it to this list!
