​What is the best stethoscope for a nursing student?

Posted on

Being a new nursing student can be overwhelming, especially for finding a good stethoscope. There are so many options and all are great for different reasons. You have probably not had much experience using a stethoscope at that point in your life; therefore you may not even know where to start.

For starters, Littmann is one of the most reliable brands for stethoscopes, so that is a good starting point for where to look. The Classic III is one of the best options for nursing students. One of the reasons this is the best options for nursing students is because it has an adult and pediatric side with tunable diaphragms. Therefore, it is going to be useful when working with infants, children and adults throughout clinicals and all throughout nursing school. The pediatric side of the stethoscope can also be used for very small patients, which can be very beneficial, as well.

Some other great characteristics of the Classic III that makes it one of the best options, is it is a single piece diaphragm which makes it very easy to clean, the tubing lasts longer than many others because it is resistant to many products, and it has a 5 year warranty if you do experience any problems with it. There are also replacement pieces you can buy as well, such as diaphragms, tubing, snap on rims, and ear tips.

The Classic III also has the biggest selections for colors, ranging all the way from black to lime green and so many other colors in between. Not only do you have a wide selection of colors to choose from, there are also different finishes you can choose from including, black edition, smoke, rainbow, copper, champagne, and mirror. We have examples of different finishes at Scrub Identity if you would like to see what they look like in person
