Summary: When doing your holiday shopping, don’t forget a little something for the school nurse who cares for your child with type 1 diabetes. Here are 10 low-cost gift ideas for school nurses.
Some of us are lucky enough to have a school nurse to care for our d-kid during the day. At times we’ve only had the nurse at school at the end of lunch to give insulin. Now we have a nurse who is in the school off and on during the school day, checking in on Q several times.
Because diabetes care is needed throughout the day, d-kids often get to know the school nurse well.
To show appreciation at the holidays, some parents choose to give the nurse a gift. Alternatively, you might choose to recognize the nurse during nursing week, school nurse day, or at the end of the year.
Gifts don’t have to be extravagant, in fact spending $10-15 can show your appreciation. Remember that it’s the thought that counts.
This year Q is making scarves for some of her favorite school staff members, but I’m also including a Starbucks gift card for the nurse.
