    What books/equipment do you need when studying nursing?
    And when you are qualified to become a nurse do you have to buy your own stethoscope?

    I've moved your thread into the Nursing and Midwifery area

    You really need very little. Wait till you get a reading list as most resources you need will be online and most textbooks will be available in the library - you can then buy them if you find them useful. The only things you will need for placement are pens, a small notebook, fob watch and shoes that fit with your uniform policy. You would only likely need a stethoscope in certain advanced roles but yes, you would need to buy your own unless you wanted to use a communal one.*
