    Just a question about the nursing kit I need for Tafe.. I've been told by someone at the tafe to purchase their nursing kit for $60, though a friend introduced me to enurse.com.au where i can get nursing kits cheaper - though I'm not sure what things I actually need in the kit? Are there standard things or would they differ do you think? I've asked a friend who finished her RN last year at uni though she was never asked to purchase a nursing kit so was surprised when I told her I need one..?

    What's in the nursing kit?
    When I'm on the wards I just have a pen and a wristwatch. Everything else I need can be found at work!

    Isn't it usually just a watch, scissors and pen. Possibly a pen torch?
    For TAFE we have to take a pen and scissors with us to prac. You can buy a pouch if you want one as well.
    Maybe have a look on enurse or the one at TAFE and see what comes in it?

    I've been told we need the nurse kit for clinical classes at tafe.. I know a lot of RNs and ENs who all say they don't even use a nurse kit at work, as everything they need is on hand anyway. One RN has a nurse kit, though she leaves it at reception, depending on which ward she works on. My sister said she just caries a small notebook, pen and some wound covers in her top pocket. Yet my cousin who is an RN in the psych ward can't carry anything obviously as anything can be used as a weapon. It's interesting though to see what others do, some of the RN's I have spoken to don't even know what a nurse kit is lol Though I can understand the tafe just want us to have these things to practice with.

    I used to study personal training and have just gone over all my muscularskeletal anatomy and am relieved I seem to have remembered it all sorry, small celebration for me How is everyone else doing?

    Weird, you'd think Tafe would have everything you need there. All we need to take to our prac classes are a pen and a watch is useful although there is a clock on the wall if needed.
    So far on prac, all I've needed is a pen. All other equipment can be found on the wards.

    Hi everyone!
    Sorry to butt in on your thread but I was hoping you guys could answer some of my questions. I'm sure if I flicked through the 50 odd pages the answers would be there but that would take me forevvvver!!

    I want to study midwifery. I spoke with a midwife and she suggested doing a double degree. I would love to get into Deakin in Geelong. Here comes the questions!! What is the application process? Do I pick a few uni's and then wait to hear if I'm accepted? What can I do to increase my chances of being accepted? And what is the workload like? I have an almost 2yr old son and worry that I will struggle.

    Thanks in advance xx

    You put an application into VTAC.

    I would suggest going along to the Deakin open day where you can chat to current students and staff about the program. They'll also have sessions on how to apply, for mature age students and for students studying with families

    It depends on where you are on prac. Aged care and mental health nurses don't have nursing kits/pouches I found when I did placement. But placements I have done in hospitals all the RN's have walked around with pouches bulging with items. They don't have personal steths. The wards have a lot of those and they aren't used very often. But they carry on them at all times surgical tape, cotton wool buds (for when cannulas are removed), gauze, small wound dressings, notebook, pocket scissors, panadol (easier to grab out of pouch than the pts drug draw if they are requesting pain med and have a PRN order for it- especially when you have a large pt load), their ID and 'cheat' lanyard cards attached to the pouch, a black pen, a 4 coloured pen, mobile phone, mints (don't want your nurse's bad breath in your face!), handover sheet and for those that use them, time planner. Some have pen lights, others didn't; personal preference and again, depends on the ward.

    The ward I've most recently been with was a cardiac ward and the nurses all had the ECG stickers and anginine in their pouch too.
