A little help
- 1Jul 28, '13 by dixie24I'm not sure where this goes, but I figured it would be best here. I don't want to bog down the other pages about the HESI and things like that, but my long time girlfriend is about to finish nursing school and she rocks so I guess this will have to do. I was wondering if y'all have any suggestions for a nice gift that I could give her for graduation? My mother, also a nurse, gave her a nice stethoscope for her birthday when she started nursing school so that is taken care of. She is hoping to go to grad school so she can become a CPRN if that gives anymore background. Lastly, thanks for all of the work y'all do as nurses! Watching my mother for as long as I can remember, I know it is hard work, and none of it goes unappreciated.

If you want something a bit more tangible...
Engraved watch, pen, bandage scissors
Super-comfy pair of non-skid shoes (trust me - she'll be thanking you at the end of EVERY shift for this one...)
Embroidered lab coat
Just what comes to mind off the top of m'head. Best of luck with the gift selection...

(Just type "Registered Nurse Necklace" in the search bar).
Also, the work shoes is a really good idea too, but might be something you should take her for instead of trying to buy them for her. Or a giftcard to a place that has great nursing footwear!Last edit by dpcRN on Jul 28, '13 : Reason: Afterthoughts!
- 0Jul 29, '13 by RN&momI was so happy to be done nursing school, I spent two weeks reading books I enjoy reading before starting to prepare for NCLEX... If she likes to read that might be a good idea, or get her a gift card for a massage. Trust me, after nursing school every muscle aches! You're a good friend for still being there. Nursing school is a long journey.
