    A sthescope if she doesn't have one; Tack pin that says CNA she can wear on uniform; pocket organizer with pens pencils, flashlight, bandage scissor ---if you are looking for practical gift. Local nursing uniform shop or Wear guard store will carry these items--lookin blue pages of phone book. Good website is www.nursesstation.com for gifts.

    Gift certificate to uniform store always appreciated.

    Prepaid cell phone if she will work in home care.

    Flowers and dinner out nice. Even one lone red rose that you can give her at graduation ceremony--she can press in a book. Ask if you can attend ceremony--we encourage family members to come to our graduation ceremony: cake and ice cream served.

    Sh'e a lucky girl to have a caring friend.

    How about a gift certificate for a massage that she can use after she puts in some hours? She'll enjoy it, even if her muscles aren't tired.

    A stethoscope, some very nice pens-cause goodness knows she'll need them -, a clipboard, a lab jacket with her name embroidered (sp?) on it....all of these are GREAT suggestions!
