Nursing students typically undergo two to four years of rigorous study and preparation for their future careers. Graduation from nursing school is a milestone event that symbolises the individual's dedication to the health care field. The best nursing graduation gifts include items that the nurse can use in her given profession, as well as items that help in the future.

Future Support

Once a nurse finishes one program, he has the option to go back and work on an advanced degree or specialise in a given field. If the nurse in your life is heading back to school, treat him to a school-related gift. Check with the bookstore on campus about buying a gift token. Nursing books are fairly expensive, and your special someone might appreciate the help. If your budget allows, invest in a PDA or smartphone that lets the nurse keep track of his class schedule, work activities and social life all in one place.


Depending on where the nurse works, the company will either require that she wear scrubs or a professional nursing uniform. Most large cities have uniform supply stores that provide uniforms and scrubs for nursing professionals. Purchase uniforms for the future nurse from the store or opt for a gift token from an online retailer specialising in uniforms. Customise the uniform with the nurse's name or a quote on the front. If her company has a strict dress code policy, including limiting colours or patterns, then pick a gift token and let the nurse find the right clothes for the job.

Personalised Gifts

Personalised gifts offer the nurse something unique that no one at her work will have. Consider picking a personalised charm bracelet with different charms relating to nursing and one charm with her name engraved on the front. A personalised watch, featuring a stethoscope and the recipient's name on the front, next to the time display, is another one-of-a-kind item.

Novelty Gifts

Treat the nurse to a humorous gift for around the house, such as a prescription bottle cocktail shaker. The cocktail shaker resembles a large pill bottle, but when you remove the top, you find a pop-off strainer and space for mixing drinks. Or give the nurse an ink pen shaped like a large syringe and her own fake prescription pad. You will also opt for a teddy bear outfitted in nursing scrubs, with a nurse's hat on top.
