With so many to choose from, finding the perfect gifts for first year nurses can be a challenge. Everyone knows that nursing is a demanding job, especially when they are just starting out.
Long shift work, caring for patients and dealing with stress are all parts of the profession. If you need something to give as a present and are at a loss for ideas, gifts that are unique, practical or funny tend to be big hits.
A Hospital Approved Silicone Wedding Band
Most hospitals have rules against wedding bands or engagement rings that have diamonds or sharp jewels on them. This is to prevent cuts & tears to sterile gloves. Silicone rings are a great alternative that can be worn while at work. Even better, they are long lasting, comfy to wear and can hold up to hand sanitizers.
A Great Looking Nurses Bag
Nurses are known for having to haul around plenty of personal and work related stuff. Thus, a stylish bag will help to make their life much simpler. They can have all their necessities with them at all times, stored in a well organized manner. Fashionable, durable and plenty of pockets for storage, it’s a must have item.
A Nurses Badge Clip
Nurses work in secured areas, which require ID badges to get in and out of their workplace. Their badge is prominently displayed on their uniform for all to see. It’s a simple, yet boring accessory that happens to be a necessity of the job. However, with a cute, colorful and stylish badge clip, they can brighten up their scrubs and show off their unique personality.
A Stethoscope ID Tag
Every nurse is required to have a stethoscope, and yes, they can be a bit pricey. Sometimes they get lost or misplaced by accident, so using an ID tag is a great idea. There are plenty of wonderful styles available or you could even choose a customized version that features the name of the recipient. The special nurse in your life will think of you every time they use it. Even better, they’re super affordable too!
A Smart Phone Sanitizer
It’s a well known fact that the surface of smart phones are dirty. In fact, it has been proven that they are even more dirty than a toilet seat. Nurses already deal with loads of germs and bacteria on the job, so help them out by giving them a phone sanitizer. They are lightweight, portable and can sterilize their phone in a few short minutes.
