When caring for patients, your leg pain from standing all day should not take away your focus. Our compression socks for nurses provide support and prevent muscle and tendon pain. Other socks that fall or compress too tightly do neither.

Nurse Yard designed compression socks for nurses to provide just the right support for feet, joints, and muscles. Our nurse compression socks provide:

  • Graduated compression distributed evenly from ankle to calf
  • Cushioned, supportive arches to prevent strained ligaments
  • No-slip knitted cuff and liner to keep them in place all day

Our compression socks don't just help nurses. They can also benefit runners, teachers, pregnant women, dancers, hikers, golfers, as well as conditions like neuropathy and shin splints.

We’re so sure nurses will love these compression socks that they come with a 60-day money-back guarantee. Try them for 60 days—if they’re not right for you, return them for a full refund.

How Our Compression Socks for Nurses Are Different

Some of nurses’ most common complaints about other compression socks are that they’re: 

  • Too tight, restricting blood flow and leaving prominent dents in the skin
  • Too loose and need to be pulled up and adjusted throughout the day

Nurse Yards solved both problems with a unique, wave-knit fabric used in our compression socks for nurses. This special weave provides just the right amount of pressure to promote circulation and stay put without digging into the skin. They’re also machine washable and durable enough for everyday use.

We know nurses don’t have time for blisters, so we’ve added cushioning in the ankle and foot to protect your skin and provide an extra layer of comfort.

To bring a little fun to your outfit, we've created three healthcare-related designs for our compression socks. We call them Hero Socks. The selection includes scrub life compression socks, ambulance compression socks, DNA compression socks, pills compression socks, PPE compression socks, and pill bottles compression socks.

Risk Free 60 Day Guarantee

We proudly stand behind our product, which is why we offer a lengthy guarantee.

If for any reason you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, return it within 60 days of your purchase for a full refund.

Compression Details

20-30 mmHg of graduated pressure. The perfect balance of compression... Not too tight, yet not loose! The ideal amount of support.

Fabric & Care

Our socks are made of 80% Nylon + 20% Spandex. Recommended to air dry to prevent shrinkage and for a longer lasting sock. Wash cold. No fabric softener.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do compression socks do for nurses?

Nurses often experience sore feet after their long 12-hour shifts. Walking and standing for long periods puts strain on your joints and legs, particularly your ankles and the connective tissues around your shin bones. Over time, this strain can cause chronic problems like shin splints, plantar fasciitis, inflammation, and joint problems. 

For effective foot care, nurses should wear compression socks because they provide cushion the foot and ankle to prevent blisters, promote blood flow to soothe sore muscles and increase stamina, and support the plantar fascia ligament in the arch of the foot.

What is the design of a Nurse Yard compression sock?

At Nurse Yard, we make compression socks with a balance of comfort and utility, making them easy and enjoyable to wear. We also added a variety of features to ensure you’re supported from toe to knee, including:

  • Extra room in the toes for breathability
  • Moisture-wicking material to keep feet cool
  • Arch supports to tame plantar fasciitis
  • Cushioned ankles to prevent chafing
  • Wave-shaped knit for consistent compression
  • No-slip cuffs to keep them in place

What size compression sock do I need?

Sock size is determined using your normal shoe size and the circumference of your calf. Compare that number and your shoe size to our sizing chart. Measure your calf with a flexible tailor’s measuring tape. Wrap the tape around the widest part of your calf muscle, keeping it flush with the skin (but not too tight).

For instance, if you wear a women’s size 7 shoe with a calf circumference of 10 inches, our women’s S/Msock will fit you best. If you fall between sizes, our compression socks are roomier in the foot than regular socks, so size down if you want them to be more form-fitting.

Does Nurse Yard provide different colors and sizes of compression socks?

Of course! We don’t believe practical has to mean boring, so we offer compression socks for nurses in a variety of fun styles in both men’s and women’s sizes: 

  • Black and gray
  • White and gray
  • Green and gray
  • Blue and gray with white toe and heel
  • Pink and gray with white heel and toe
  • Orange and gray with black toe and heel

How tight are compression socks?

Our compression socks hug the leg with graduated compression for consistent calf-to-toe support, starting with 30 mmHg of firm compression at the ankle and progressing to 20 mmHg of moderate compression just under the knee. This ensures that the socks are snug enough to relieve pain and inflammation while staying in place, yet comfortable enough to wear for your entire shift.

Where does Nurse Yard ship from?

Nurse Yard ships our no-slip compression socks for nurses from Phoenix, AZ.

How long will Nurse Yard shipping take?

After placing your order, you’ll receive your compression socks within 3 to 5 days, depending on where you are in relation to our shipping facility. Since shipping is always free, there’s no need to worry about longer shipping times inflating the price.

Benefits of Compression Socks for Nurses

Nursing often requires individuals to be on their feet and on the move in excess of 8 to 12 hours a day. Walking that much in regular socks—even in the proper shoes—can lead to chafed feet, sore and swollen joints, shin splints, and plantar fasciitis. 

As the name suggests, Nurse Yard’s compression socks are made specifically with nurses in mind. Light, firm compression provides just enough pressure to improve circulation without being uncomfortable. Moisture-wicking material keeps your feet cool and dry, while light cushioning and arch support cradle your ankle and instep for all-day comfort.

Leg pain

The advance compression socks are the best. My leg pain disappears while I am wearing them. My only negative is wearing them on really hot weather, I give Nurse Yard a big thumbs up!

We understand that they may not be the most comfortable in hot weather, but we appreciate your support and are happy to have Nurse Yard's approval. Take care!

Jean Goble
Original single color compression socks

Love the way these socks make my legs feel while I am wearing them. My legs continue to feel good when I take them off and go to sleep. My legs are so much less “restless” while sleeping when I have worn these socks while I was awake and active.

Hi Jean,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our Original Solid Compression Socks. We're happy to hear that you love how they make your legs feel while wearing them. We're even more delighted to know that your legs continue to feel good even after taking them off and going to sleep. That's great news! We're glad our socks have helped with your 'restless' legs while sleeping. Thank you for choosing our product and we hope to continue providing you with excellent support and comfort. Have a great day!

Robin Woolard
Great Socks

I have been looking for compression socks and really liked your ad on Facebook. Two things I really love about the socks are the size and the color. I have big calves and most compression socks are too small for me. The sizing on the socks is great so I was able to get a perfect fit. They look like dress socks which is also great. That way it is not obvious that I have on compression socks. My legs feel supported due to the compression and it really helps my lower leg swelling and the resulting pain and soreness that accompanies swelling. I would definitely recommend the socks!!

Hi Robin!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. We're so glad to hear that our Original Solid Compression Socks have been a great fit for you. We understand how frustrating it can be to find compression socks that accommodate larger calves, and we're happy to hear that our sizing worked well for you. We're also thrilled that you appreciate the dress sock look - we designed them with that in mind! We're happy to know that our socks are providing you with the necessary support and helping with your swelling and pain. Thank you for recommending our product, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you ever need anything else.

Cheers to happy and healthy legs!

Comfy and plushy support

These are very soft and comfortable, more so than I was expecting. I have another pair from online retailers that I had to do extensive research to ensure they were properly the right compression, much less comfortable than Nurse Yard. Nurse Yard provides cute support for a very good price. Customer service team is fantastic!

Hi Leslie! We are thrilled to hear that you are enjoying our Best Nurse Compression Socks. We pride ourselves on providing both comfort and support, so we're glad we exceeded your expectations. Our team is always happy to assist with any questions or concerns, so please don't hesitate to reach out in the future. Thank you for choosing Nurse Yard!

Emily Van Engen

They’re comfortable. They actually fit around my calves and stay up for multiple hours! No pulling these back up in the middle of the day. I wish there were prints for teachers or more prints like this one, although I know this site is targeted to our sweet nurses out there.

Hi Emily,

We're delighted to hear that our Nurse Yard compression socks are comfortable and stay up well for you throughout the day! Your feedback about the prints is valuable to us, and we appreciate your suggestion for more variety, including prints for teachers. While our primary focus is on providing support for healthcare professionals, we'll certainly take your feedback into consideration for future designs. Thank you for sharing your experience.
