My sister is getting ready to graduate from nursing school and since I'm just in pre-nursing not sure what might be a good idea for a gift for her? Any suggestions from those of you who have already finished would be much appreciated! Thank you!
A gift card to a medical supply store or Uniform store. I received several at my graduation party and appreciated them very much. This way she can buy some new uniforms, shoes, stethoscope, or whatever she needs.
I also received several gift certificates to a local salon that does everything from hair and nails to massages. Those were really nice after a few months working...back massages were great!
Cash. I am big into giving gift cards these days with a little trinket gift like a book mark. lip gloss, etc. I like to let people buy exactly what they like and it's always nice to have one in your pocket for a little treat.
My best gift: Dakota watch company (in kiosks at malls) sells a watch that clips on to your pocket or collar, 15 second blocks are different colors so it's easier to time drips or breaths per minute.
It was about $30 I believe, but PRICELESS after I got stool on my watchband one day cleaning up a patient, and no longer wanted to wear a wristwatch.
NCLEX review book or a brand new stethoscope....or cash. I just graduated yesterday and just received cash (I recently bought a Littmann Cardiology III for myself as an early graduation present and I also bought a pair of Danskos as another graduation gift). Since I am moving, I am holding off on buying uniforms for now. The place I work at now lets us wear whatever we want but I don't know the uniform requirements of where I will be for my first RN job. The uniform stores also might not be the same where I move, so I am glad I didn't get any uniform store-specific gift cards.
