    A card, a candy cane.

    And that's fine. I'm honestly just happy to have this job!

    A ham certificate I never redeemed. And instead of a raise which may have put me out of the teens/hr I got a pathetic bonus check. I also found out my benefits are changing (not in a good way). I am happy to have a job though.

    I got a $25 gift card to Macy's, same as I got for nurses' week. Those two things combined are more than I ever got in my 5 years at the hospital. When I worked in the hospital, we used to get a $5 or $10 gift card to the cafeteria for a couple years and then nothing for the last 3.

    A ham from one and $25.00 from the other. The hospital served a free meal (I was off that day) and the practice MDs, bought lunch (also off that day.) The school where I teach had a Christmas party one evening, but I didn't go because I'm very part-time and don't know very many people. I'll be having the ham on Christmas though.

    A few pieces of candy, a pen, a pen light, and a duffel bag (guess we are supposed to use it to tote all our crap around for the shift or something. Lol)

    This year it was a duffle bag with the healthcare system's logo on it and a lunch bag with the children's hospital logo on it for those who work at that facility. Considering there are 60,000+ employees in the system, I think it's a really nice gift. Bonuses are coming soon, too--between $300-$1000 depending on how many hours you worked.

    We had a holiday party; I couldn't attend because I was working. I'll probably get a card, and maybe some candy.

    screwed over with the holiday schedule. I never do more than 4x 0:00-8:00 shifts in a row and they've scheduled me 7 in a row from Dec 28 to Jan 2!!!
    No bonuses or anything
