Fun Male Nursing Accessories
Being a male nurse is fun and rewarding. There are lots of things you can do to accessorize your male wardrobe, and there are also some important things to have that make the job easier for you throughout the day as you interact with patients and help others.
A good thing to have with you at all times is a stethoscope. It’s nice to have your own, since it’s going on your ears all day – it’s good to have one that you don’t have to share with anyone else’s ears, as it were. Male nurses often have their own stethoscopes.
Male nurses spend a good deal of the day on their feet, running from place to place. Sometimes that makes for sore muscles. One of the ways to combat those working-time aches is to use kinesiology tape on the sore or affected areas. It can really help take the strain away from those target areas.
If your working in peds as a male nurse, you may want to have accessories that are fun for children or make them laugh. One way to do this is to have some fun and playful reflex hammers at your disposal. They come in all shapes and colors, and there are some even shaped like animals that kids enjoy.
No matter who your patients are, they might benefit from having ‘no chill’ sleeves put over the stethoscope when you check their breathing. It can eliminate that cold ‘brrr’ feeling, and is often a must in any make nurse’s accessories.
If you like, you can also order male nursing scrubs which come in a variety of designs. Some are cute, some are funny, and some just put people at ease when they look at them.
Another male nurse accessory is the Sphygmomanometer. Often the rooms have their own Sphygmomanometers, but you can also have your own in interesting designs, too.
