Call me silly but they could get you a gift! If not oh well. Sincere little notes to anyone that was extremely helpful are always a nice gesture.

What about a going away party? Maybe you could suggest a potluck. Everyone could bring something. Some places of employment still do this kind of thing.

Nada. Zilch. Nothing. Not a d*mn thing.

I have sent emails to the unit informing them of my departure and thanking them. When I've really liked a particular group of workers, I've brought sweets in on my last day. But yea. No. Even as the charge nurse I have never felt obligated or brought anything.

If anything I would get cupcakes and write a thank you note or something like that. But I agree, you're under no obligation whatsoever. 

^^^^^This^^^^^^

Are you from another country? I know in Poland, token gifts are huge. I personally found that tiresome when I visited there. And, despite all the veneer of courtesy there, if they didn't like a gift they made no effort to hide it. 😏

I advise you to view a job in a more businesslike way. You'll basically be dead to them 2 weeks after you leave anyways, why bother?

In me experience this has been just the opposite. The coworkers give the outgoing nurse a gift, potluck, order out lunch, something along those lines. I have never given gifts when I was the one to quit. Like others have stated if there is someone special just maybe a note or something, or a card addressed to the whole unit thanking them etc. This is not common practice.

UPDATE! Hello Everyone. The staff gave me a surprise party yesterday.  I was floated to another floor and they call me and told me to come to the floor. I went and everyone was there to surprise me including a nurse who only work on weekends. They thank me and expressed appreciation to me. I gave them chocolate as gifts. I gave to every floor (5) including my supervisors and thank them. Thank you everyone for your input, it was highly appreciated.

Aww.. How sweet.  Chocoloates gifts were a nice touch.  I was going to add if there were people you were close to, something small like that is nice.

I also got gifts from the Residents. One of them said, time for her to go home now because I am not here any more. All the kind words from the Residents reminded me of why I became a nurse.

They was very happy to receive it. The ADN  was touched and told me how thoughtful of me. My Head Nurse apologized to me about how she treated me. Her mouth literally drop open when I presented the gift to her.
