- Jan 13 by LauraashMy director of nursing is always talking about the old "little golden books". They have one called nurse Nancy.
- Jan 14 by melizerdIf you're religious a Bible might be a good idea. There are a lot of patients that ask for readings.
For me personally I would bring a star. I have found stars to pop up for me in a lot of weird places and have become my "thing".

If I were tasked with this assignment, I would probably bring a stethoscope (personal connection between my Grandma and nursing) or see if I can find a nurse's cap.
Will you please share what you chose to bring?
- Jan 14 by llgA lamp is the obvious choice -- since it is the "official" symbol of our profession.
But on a more personal level ... I would bring something related to one of the following themes:
1. Knowledge, information, etc. representing that nursing is based on knowledge. It's is a "learned" profession as well as a technical one.
2. Something related to nursing history -- representing the legacy of those who have come before us, established our profession, and gave us principles to follow.
3. Something related to service to mankind -- past, present, and future. Evolving service.
If I could find something that related to all of those themes together, that is what I would bring. -- Eg. a great book or picture depicting an older generation of nurses teaching a younger generation of nurses.
- Jan 14 by HouTxHmm - I personally think that the most important thing that a nurse does is to safeguard the patient while they are in such a scary and potentially hostile environment (organized healthcare). We are vigilant - preventing errors; watching for changes that may indicate complications or additional problems; alerting physicians so that they can intervene promptly...... etc.
So, I am kinda torn between symbols - lifeboat? lighthouse? definitely something that would indicate "safe passage".. or for those who are more action oriented, some sort of warrior figure? -- "Ninja nurse" Hey, I like that one.
