First Year Supplies
Supplies for First Year Nursing
Students will need to wear Trent/Fleming School of Nursing uniforms to all labs and clinical placements. The uniform includes scrubs, year badges, clinical ID badge, non-porous white shoes
Scrubs and year badges
can be purchased at the school at the beginning of the year. There will be a date in September in which students can try on scrubs and purchase them at the Bookstore on campus.
Clinical ID badges
will be distributed to students at clinical orientation for their first clinical placement.
Closed-toe and closed-heel, leather/pleather shoes
are required for infection control and safety purposes. Shoes must be solid in colour, with no pattern(s). Shoes may be dark blue, black, dark grey or white. Coloured soles are acceptable if they are slip resistant and non-marking.
If students wish to have their own stethoscope they may purchase one. Students should look for one that has both a diaphragm and a bell. A medical supply store or the Trent and Fleming bookstores carry stethoscopes.
Students should purchase their own lock as lockers are provided for students to keep their belongings in during lab sessions.
Students will be provided with a list of books they will need for each course inside of their course syllabus. The syllabus will include required course books as well as additional resources or books that may be beneficial to the students learning. The school will also create a package of textbooks that students will need for their first year, many of these books will be re-used throughout the course of the students' studies. Books can be purchased at the Trent Bookstore (http://www.bkstr.com/trentstore/home).
For students in the post-RPN Bridge to BScN program, you can purchase textbook through your on-campus bookstore (https://coned.georgebrown.ca/student-resources/campus-bookstores-and-com...). You book list will be available later in the summer.
