My sister is getting ready to graduate from nursing school and since I'm just in pre-nursing not sure what might be a good idea for a gift for her? Any suggestions from those of you who have already finished would be much appreciated! Thank you!

A gift card to a medical supply store or Uniform store. I received several at my graduation party and appreciated them very much. This way she can buy some new uniforms, shoes, stethoscope, or whatever she needs.

I also received several gift certificates to a local salon that does everything from hair and nails to massages. Those were really nice after a few months working...back massages were great!

Cash. ;) I am big into giving gift cards these days with a little trinket gift like a book mark. lip gloss, etc. I like to let people buy exactly what they like and it's always nice to have one in your pocket for a little treat.

OOooo I love the gift card for a massage idea! I could go for one of those, school is tough not to mention her first few weeks on the job, sounds perfect!

A day at the spa. I am also about to graduate and feel that would be a really nice way to spend a day after graduation.

A watch that has at least marks for all of the #'s. Better yet, one with 24 hour markings (ie 1 o'clock has a 1 and 13 by it). Make sure it has a second hand.

My best gift: Dakota watch company (in kiosks at malls) sells a watch that clips on to your pocket or collar, 15 second blocks are different colors so it's easier to time drips or breaths per minute.

It was about $30 I believe, but PRICELESS after I got stool on my watchband one day cleaning up a patient, and no longer wanted to wear a wristwatch.

A big, roomy lunch cooler with a shoulder strap, and pockets. You might wanna also throw in some of those little freezer ice thingies if you find some that are cute. She'll use it everyday.

I'm graduating in May. If anyone in my family asks what I want, I'm going to request a gift certificate to the Sassy Scrubs website. They have beautiful things!!

NCLEX review book or a brand new stethoscope....or cash. I just graduated yesterday and just received cash (I recently bought a Littmann Cardiology III for myself as an early graduation present and I also bought a pair of Danskos as another graduation gift). Since I am moving, I am holding off on buying uniforms for now. The place I work at now lets us wear whatever we want but I don't know the uniform requirements of where I will be for my first RN job. The uniform stores also might not be the same where I move, so I am glad I didn't get any uniform store-specific gift cards.
