- Jan 30 by netglowQuote from PoochiewoochieI once was waiting in line at Dunkin Donuts, and just was casually scanning the trays of donuts when I saw a 2+ inch long cockroach standing just as proud as you please on a chocolate eclair looking out at all of us in line I just turned around and left the store.I used to work at Dunkin Donuts when I was in high school and all I will say is that if you think you're more protected from germs and other things by eating from there think again
- Jan 30 by abpeelerJust talking about dunkin donuts makes me want a glazed munchkin! if I want everyone to love me at work...I just go pick up some munchkins
- Jan 30 by rn/writerDoughnut holes, cut up fruit and/or veggies, mini muffins, fun-size candy bars. If you do fruit/veggies, bring toothpicks. Also think about bringing in small paper plates and napkins. Even if these are available on the unit, it's polite to avoid using hospital supplies for what is essentially a personal matter.
Whatever you decide to do, please, accompany your efforts with a nice note, thanking the staff for their help and expressing your appreciation for all that you learned while with them.
Gestures like this are usually quite well received, and cards and letters from students are often kept for a long, long time. It's nice of you to think of thanking the people on the unit.Last edit by rn/writer on Feb 1

- Jan 31 by rumwynnieRNMy final clinical day of nursing school, my classmate and I brought bagels. They were gone before lunch along with the spreads -- almond, pumpkin and low-fat regular.
- Jan 31 by ammonthenephiteCool. Excellent ideas all, thank you! I've picked up a couple containers of those costco mini brownie things, very dense, very chocolaty, but nice and clean! I'll be doing surgery center and a few others for just one day each, but I thoutht it would still be nice to bring each unit i'm in this quarter (5 in all) something for their troubles. And if it buys a little extra patience (which I'm sure they will need with me) then all the better, heh
- Jan 31 by MewsinThe students last year got us fruit trays, one for each nursing station and one for the staff room, it was wonderful.
- Jan 31 by TRR8021Yes, we did this all the time when I was in nursing school. Like others have said, do it on your last clinical day. We would all chip in as a group to defray the cost, but when I did my final senior clinical, I bought a box of Christmas cookies and a Thank You card of my own money and gave it to my unit (it was December.)
