Okay, now...shoes are the MOST important part of your nursing attire. Most of us are working 12 hour shifts running around on our feet! I noticed during nursing school that a decent amount of people wore Dansko brand shoes (which I think are not cute!), but everyone said they were the best on your feet. I bought some when I graduated and they hurt my feet! Each pair is supposedly handmade and fits a little bit different. I exchanged them for an identical pair and have been running around on them for the past four years. Best purchase (and money spent) ever! Once again, there are lots of colors and styles!
