We love these selfless caregivers who devote their lives to helping those grappling with various ailments. It is a noble profession and a reason to celebrate your loved one who’s making the transition from a nursing student to a fully-fledged nurse. We have compiled a list of gifts that’ll help them make this transition and also celebrate their achievements.

Choosing the best nurse graduation gifts

The best gifts for the graduating nursing student are those that will help them as they start working. Items that are essential to the success of their career such as proper shoes since nurses are on their feet a lot and they need to have comfortable shoes. A durable pair of scrubs is another must-have and these need to be of breathable material that will last through multiple washes. A watch that has the ‘seconds hand’ is also essential because nurses need to refer to it as they document their patient’s heart rates.

As caregivers, sometimes nurses forget to care for themselves so be sure to choose gifts that’ll encourage the soon-to-be nurse to engage in self-care. Gifts such as scented candles, bath bombs, an essential oil diffuser, or a neck and shoulder massager are some items that will help them do this. 

How we identified the best nurse graduation gifts

We identified the best nurse graduation gifts and categorized them into personalized items such as capsule messages in a bottle and some special jewelry pieces. These two categories contain gifts that are sentimental, meaningful, and are meant to ensure the soon-to-be nurse knows that they have a support system; we want to ensure that the new graduate is mentally prepared to take on their new role.

We further classified our list to cater to gifts for a daughter, a girlfriend, and him. For each of these, we picked practical gifts that are ideal for everyday use such as a crossbody cellphone purse or a massage gun. We also identified those that are ideal for the nursing profession such as the pocket medical accessories kit or the whitecoat clipboard.

Self-care is important for such a taxing profession as nursing and we factored in gifts that will encourage our upcoming nurse to do this. Items such as the rich hand cream that will keep hands moisturized, a silk pillowcase and a cozy fleece blanket to encourage optimal sleep and rest as well as an essential oil diffuser bracelet that when inhaled helps calm the mind.

Tips for buying the best nurse graduation gifts

  1. Get quality gifts
    Whatever nursing-related gift you give to the graduate is bound to be used over long periods. You, therefore, need to ensure that it is of the highest quality and will serve them well.
  2. Consider personal taste
    Although nursing gifts are similar, you need to factor in what will appeal to the recipient. Even for something as universal as Orthopedic Nursing shoes, you need to look at what’s available in terms of style and color so that your gift is as unique as possible.
  3. Ask other nurses
    Sure you want to give the soon-to-be nurse the most useful gift of all but it is understandable that you may not know what that is. Talk to others in the profession for they are sure to have some great ideas of what the newbie nurse will need to settle in.
