Nurses and stethoscopes go together like peas and carrots. Since every nurse is unique, and there are only so many styles of stethoscopes available, it’s easy to understand why many nurses want to jazz them up with unique and interesting stethoscope accessories or stethoscope covers.
Since most hospitals have very strict uniform policies, with solid colored scrubs, there isn’t often much room for self-expression. Something small and unique, like a badge reel, can give you a little something to express yourself while still abiding all your employer’s policies. Plus, if you work as a float nurse, traveler, or another area of nursing where you’re not always with the same group, you want to make super sure that your stethoscope is easily identifiable.
These stethoscope accessories are perfect for gifting, or just updating your own work wardrobe. As nurses, we all use the same tools every day depending on our specialty. That is why I like to show my personality and my creativity in the accessories I choose to bling-up my stethoscope. Etsy is truly full of adorable accessories that will let you upgrade the looks of your stethoscope and here are my favorite picks!
