Oxfords and slip on are always a popular choice as well.

The average price for for nursing shoes can vary tremendously. A big factor in how much you are going to spend is where you buy them at. If you go to your local medical uniform store, you will possibly pay twice as much as you would by buying them online. Online retailers such as Amazon tend to sell the same products for much less, and you can often get free shipping too. To give you a hint of the average prices you would pay online, you can get good sneakers for around $50, or as much as $200. Oxfords will typically cost you around $40 to $70. You can get slip ons for anywhere from $20 to $50. It’s even possible to find really cheap shoes for nurses for as little as $10.

Picking nurse shoes that are slip resistant is critical for you. When you are walking (running/jogging) up and down the halls all day/night, you need shoes that will give you good traction with the ground and not leave you laying on your back. You want something that is built to not slide on wet surfaces. These slip resistant shoes are often called work shoes, and it’s important that your nursing shoes have this feature.
