Graduation gift? - page 2
This is a little off topic but I can't think of a better place to ask. My sister is graduating from nursing school this Thursday. I would like to get her a practical gift. Preferably something... Read More
Apr 7, '03Thank you for all your responses. I have a new question. I've noticed that many of you have suggested a stethoscope. She has one that she has used through clinicals. Am I to assume that you can never have too many stethoscopes? If so then what are the better brands? Is there something I should look for?
Apr 7, '03Yes... Littman Stethoscopes I know can be personalized with their name..... Which is a good thing, cause people like to walk away with stethoscopes.
Apr 7, '03No one ever has too many steth. 'cause the interns, residents and docs walk away with them. Littman would be my endorsement. Card 3
Apr 7, '03Any of the named above.... my mom did a grab bag thing filled with tons of little nursing trinkets... it was very cute and I used alot of them..
I don't know how much money you are planning to spend, but one thing I really liked was a figurine my fiance got me. It is a Precious Moment's nurse. Very cute.
The stethoscope is also great, maybe a palm, but I'd let her pick the references, ya know?
Or some type of pretty RN jewelery.
Congrats to your sis!
Apr 8, '03tell your sister congrats & welcome to nursing !
why not give her something practical that she will definitely use like a new littmann stethoscope...maybe a cardiology ii or iii model? your sis will appreicate the quality with a nicer stethoscope...you'd be surprise the difference in the depth between a nice stethoscope and a lower scale model.
and, just think, everytime she uses it, she will have a connection with you! here's their website link:
hope this helps some ~ :hatparty:

I like the spa idea. Money always spends so if you want to be practical that is the best choice - IMO.
Apr 8, '03Could you tell us what area she'll be practicing in? It might help us tailor suggestions to her (ie, adult or peds? critical or floor? etc.). Honestly, I wouldn't get a stethoscope unless I knew which floor she was working on. They're all so different and people always tend to have a personal preference. :>) If you let us know where she's going maybe someone can suggest a scope that would be appropriate for that unit.
