This film…I could watch it over and over again! This is truly a treasure for the nursing profession. In the American Nurse Project, the director, Carolyn Jones, captures the passion of several nurses as she shares their unique stories. This year, at Nursing Management Congress, I actually got to meet Miss Jones, which was such a highlight for me. The book is on my wish list this December – I’ll keep you posted if I receive it! Think about sharing this film with all nurses who are passionate about the care they provide and the people they touch.
A watch (wristwatch or fob, engraving optional). Let’s face it, nurses pretty much need to use a watch for many things, from checking respirations and heart rates to documenting time. Furthermore, a watch is useful for practical, everyday time management. So surprise the nurse in your life with a really nice one, this watch from Timex is one of our favorites!

The amount of money you spend a nurse’s gift has nothing to do with its value or the meaning it will have on the nurse. For example, if you had a family member in the hospital and wanted to do something nice for the nurses on the shift, picking up a box of donuts and bringing them to the nurse’s station to do wonders for the mood of the unit. Or you can do something a little more expensive and buy a unique pack of pens and give every nurse that provided care one. If you want to spend a little more, you could order some custom badge reels, stethoscope charms, maybe just a few Starbucks gift cards.
The symbolic white coat is no longer reserved for physicians! Though historically lab coats have only been worn by physicians, today more and more nurses are embracing high-quality medical lab coats to complete their professional look. With custom name and title embroidery, they can show off their nursing credentials and wear their white coat with pride. Opt for a lab coat made with performance fabrics, which will repel fluids, wick away sweat, and are generally lower-maintenance and have greater durability. ">
If you’re still not sure what the perfect gift for that particular nurse should be, you can always go with a gift card. You can do something broad like an Amazon gift card, where they can buy almost anything (including gift cards to other stores). Other fun options include Starbucks, Gas gift cards, Movie gift cards, or other food and entertainment options.

This bag is made specifically for nurses, with plenty of pockets and compartments that allow for easy organization, along with a water resistant fabric and heavy duty zippers to withstand the wear and tear that comes with the job.

In reference to the above post about purchasing the review of her choice, probably the best one I found--and I looked at a lot!--also turned out to be about the least expensive. Google for [Mosby CAT NCLEX RN online] (minus the brackets or course) and then scroll down to where they have the online version. No waiting, $40 plus tax, unlimited uses for 30 days and it behaves just like the NCLEX. I used it for 2-1/2 weeks, did something like 6 of the tests (intending to do many more, of course), and I breezed through boards. ">
