You are reading page 4 of How did you spend your first nursing paycheck?
I'm a newly licensed nurse (still jobless ) but when I do get that first paycheck, its be going to be spent on a gift for my mom. She was so supportive of me all through my nursing school journey. I wouldn't be a nurse if it wasn't for her. There's no better way to spend that paycheck than something for her. and then its going to student loans, car payments, and all other not-fun stuff. :nurse:

Bills, bills, bills.
One of the nurses at work must think I'm like 17 and still live with my parents because she didn't believe me when I said that I was going to be contributing fully to household bills once again like I used to at my old job. She wanted a 'report' on all the wonderful things I would be spending my paycheck on. I'm just out here trying to function, y'all. Got that mortgage like whoa.
That's so sweet!!!
I would really like to start saving for a new car and a gift for my SO who so faithfully supported me through all of the nonsense with nursing school. She deserves something truly spiffy. I just have to wait to get back on my feet bills-wise before I can splurge on her the way she deserves.

Bills primarily! Working on paying off as much of our debt as possible while beefing back up the savings account ;-P
I think OP should rephrase this question to, "What was the first materialistic thing that you spent your nursing paycheck on?"
41 years ago at $3.25 an hour I have absolutely no idea! I'm sure I filled up my car for less than $1.00 a gallon. Money went a lot further in those days and I was still living at home and was only 20 years old. LOL.

Car payment that was late. Some groceries, ear plugs, and some bath wash to help wash off stress. Gas. And it's gone... come on friday! Mama needs new shoes (and to pay more bills.)
Who said I spent Money ?
I'll freely admit that I used my first paycheck as a nurse to fulfill a life-long dream and bought myself a horse. I've never regretted her!
I spent my first check on a new car. Mine was falling apart and I had had it since high school.
