Graduation Gifts for Registered Nurses
Graduation is a major event. Make it special. (graduation image by timur1970 from

Graduation is a time to celebrate major accomplishments and new beginnings. Nursing school is no easy task, so selecting the right gift will send a clear message about your excitement for the person graduating. Keep the graduate's preferences in mind when selecting a gift rather than just buying a generic card with a gift card enclosed. A truly special gift is one that is carefully planned and thought out.


After years of school and all the stress that goes with it, any nurse will enjoy a relaxing professional massage. Buy spa tickets at your local salon and spa. Gift-wrap the tickets in a small box and put this box inside a larger box filled with other gifts like personalised nursing items such as blankets, mugs and anything else you think your friend might like. She will open the gift and continue to be surprised by all the layers in the box, especially the box at the bottom with the massage tickets inside.


A scrapbook is a heartfelt gift that takes a lot of planning and preparation. Take photos while your friend is in school and begin making pages gradually of your times together or moments when you saw him studying. This gift is excellent if you know the person very well. As graduation day approaches, have the book nearly done. Take some final photos of the big event and then put those pages together as well. This gift will need to given to your friend a few days after graduation, but the photos and the time that went into the present is priceless. This is a truly valuable late present.

You can find the materials needed to make this book at your craft store. You will need an album along with card stock and other items such as markers and embellishments. Embellishments are accessories such as nurse hat stickers or buttons. Read books and magazines to get ideas for page layouts.

RN Jewelry

RN-specific jewellery is an excellent graduation gift for a registered nurse. You can choose from a huge selection of jewellery online or you can have something custom-made at the jewellery store. Be sure to choose something your friend or family likes. For instance, if this is for a woman and she tends to wear more necklaces than bracelets, choose an RN heart gold necklace for her.

If this gift is for a male, you can select a silver or gold watch and have it engraved with something specific to nursing school or him. For instance, you could say something like "For the Best Nurse the World" Congrats!
