    A gift I received was a little kit with a pen, scissors and pen light and it has really come in handy. Or you could make your own kit with things like tape, scissors, pen light, calculator (things that nurses keep in their pockets all the time) Another nice idea would be a gift card to a scrub store. I also received a few angle nurse figurines that I really like. And the gift I liked the MOST and I would recommend to all new grads is a book called "Your First Year as a Nurse" by Donna Wilk Cardillo.

    I told my husband that when I graduate RN school he better be there just off the stage with my gold RN pendant...

    A good pedicure and manicure or massage. I'm graduating next month and those plus a trip to a white sandy beach sound amazing. (Can you tell I've been a little stressed?)

    One of those heated foot massagers you put on the floor - either the fancy fur ones from Brookstone/Sharper Image, or the nice Homedics one that you can find at places like Kohls and Kmart. Both are great! Those foot spas you add water to are nice as well, but after a long shift, who wants to fill it with water and clean it out?

    A good book is "Chicken Soup for the Nurse's Soul" if she doesn't have it yet.
