That time of year has come; your friend or family member has sacrificed so much for this moment: nursing school graduation. And that’s not including what’s next for them: the NCLEX . So why not surprise them with something they’ll actually want during this graduation season? Give them something that will make their transition from nursing student to nurse go a little more smoothly.  Here are ten great gifts for the graduating nursing student! ">

Nurses play an important part in many people’s lives. And that goes for family and friends, as well as for patients. The work that a nurse does is admirable, and they can always be relied on for compassion and respect. When it comes time for a nurse to retire there will be a lot of people queuing up to wish them all the best. Co-workers, current and former patients, as well as friends and family, will all want to mark the event in a special way.
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.

One of the reasons I bought these is another reviewer said the toes were loose, which was exactly what I needed. My second toe is the same length as my big toe and most socks Cause pressure and a sore nail. These socks fit loose on the end of my toe and are snug the rest of the way up my leg and so I am thrilled. They are warm which is great for winter but I doubt if I’ll wear them in the summertime. Although I have some lovely colorful ones for summer,

I’m listing this one again because I think it fits well in this category, too–even the nurse who has everything would love it!  Nightingale Express boxes are wonderfully curated!  There are various boxes to choose from, as well as individual products, so there is something for everyone and every budget.  Not only that, but there is a box geared toward male nurses, who are historically left out of a lot of nurse-themed items.

After taking finals and graduating, the recent grad will likely have a lot of stress and tension built up. You could always buy them a day of relaxation. You could contact local spas, or treat them to manicure or whatever else you think they’d enjoy. Also, since they may be doing a lot of job interviews, you could always schedule them to get their hair done, and other beauty pampering. Of course, this not only applies to female grads—males would still enjoy a nice massage.
