Do any current students know whether you are allowed to use the Apple Watch as a fob when nursing? I know you have to be bare below the elbows but there are attachments to turn the watch into a fob with the clock face on.
Thank you!

Tbh, I wouldn’t want to use something as expensive as that as a fob watch.

I don't know much about apple watch, but I think it works as a mini "phone". My friend has one and she receives emails and messages on it. When you using it as a fob, what happens if you get a message or email, won't it interfere with what you doing? Just a thought...

Phones and stuff like that don’t cause problems with equipment, but emails, texts etc could be a distraction.

You won't be allowed that, due to the bare below elbow rule but also the distractions associated with an Apple Watch, e.g. viewing/receiving text messages. Additionally, if you were doing mental health nursing for example and in a secure unit, this would not be allowed to even be worn as a visitor, never mind as a member of staff. Stick to the gig, use the normal watches they pin to their overalls. Imagine being a patient, and seeing your nurse's 'watch' light up, buzz, the nurse being distracted and checking it, or the nurse going to the check the time to write when they administered your med's but for them to seemingly take a while to do so as they just had to open that text message notification.

Normal watch please, avoid trouble and avoid slipping into poor-practice territory before you have even qualified
