nursing shoes

Please could any nursing students or nurses let me know what shoes i’ll need for my placements and clinical and where i can get them from??
Hi there,

Full-in, leather shoes are best. This is because you’ll get all sorts on you during placement and it needs to be wipe clean.

I personally wear the Doc Martens Polley shoes, but a lot wear Clarks as they’re comfortable and durable

I wear sketchers trainers as we are allowed them but you can get there shoes as very comfortable especially when you will be on your feet for long hours each day.

Depending on what your university/ hospital trust uniform policy is for what footwear you can wear as every trust has their own policies on whether you can wear shoes or trainers or both, check this out.

Clarks are also very good for nursing staff.

Hi,
I am currently a second year student midwife. I wear one of two shoes for my 12hr shifts. The Clark Unloops are VERY good sturdy shoes. They are comfortable smart looking shoes to wear to placement. They took me about a year to break in fully, but now they are amazing.

For theatre/Labour wards I wear the specialist work clogs from Crocs. They are closed crocs, without the holes, suitable for the clinical environment where you will be dealing with bodily fluids etc.

I know a lot of other students wear sketchers too.
