For the travel nurse on the go! The only smartphone they’ll need: iPhone 6s
Everything about this new iPhone 6s has been improved, from the camera to the processor. It’s more than just a smartphone, it’s an iPhone. Our polls say that 100% of travel nurses want this as a gift this year! Help your favorite nurse stay connected with family, friends, and their new jobs, as they travel helping others. Whether it’s to Facetime with family, or check their weekly roster, the iPhone 6s is something every travel nurse not only wants but needs!
One of the great things about the iPhone series is the choice of apps, including many health and wellness apps to keep track of your fitness goals, lifestyle choices and track your progress along the way. Nurses are on the frontline of healthcare, but that often means neglecting their own health and wellness. With long shifts and cafeteria foods, it can be a daunting task for them to stay healthy and be well. With so many amazing apps at their fingertips, the iPhone 6s is another tool to give them to help them be the best they can be. Whether you are counting steps or counting carbs, there’s an app for that.
Many travel nurses specialize in their fields of medicine, and that can mean keeping up-to-date on their education and learning experiences. Often working long hours, they need a way to keep connected to the outside world, and keep a fresh perspective in their chosen fields. With upgraded connectivity features, the iPhone 6s will ensure that they can be at the forefront of their specialties, get any important data, and information when they need it.
Keep your favorite travel nurse connected with the best in cell phones. Travel nurses need a reliable phone, not only to stay in contact with their jobs but to stay connected to their loved ones. Give them the gift of ease, beauty, and connectivity with the smartphone they’ll all want — the iPhone 6s.
Give the gift of happiness for those tired, overworked muscles with the Spoonk Acupressure Mat.
After a long, hard shift nurses are spent! Nurses are really the ones who do the heavy-lifting. They work long hours, often mixed shifts and are on their feet all the time. It’s no wonder nurses have sore muscles, aching backs and need some relief. That’s where this gift comes in. Using the principles of acupressure, in the convenience of a mat (that can go anywhere), the Spoonk mat comes in. Based on the proven science of acupressure, the Spoonk mat’s stimulation points increase blood flow, relax tense muscles and release the ‘feel good’ hormones like endorphins and oxytocin, which will give any travel nurse those feelings of wellbeing and calm. Just what they need!
We all know how tough it can be to get a good night’s sleep when your schedule changes from week-to-week, like many nurses experience. Just getting to sleep can be challenging when you’re trying to adjust to a new routine, new location, and have to go to sleep when the sun’s still out. That’s what’s so great about the Spoonk acupressure mat – it actually helps you fall asleep easier. We know your favorite travel nurse would get a lot of use from that!
Give the gift of lasting memories! Our pick for the best digital camera!
One of the best things about being a traveling nurse is getting to experience new places, people, and adventures. Seeing the world is one thing. Remembering what you saw is another – and that means investing in a great digital camera. But, where do you start? With so many decent cameras to choose from, it can be confusing on what camera would work best for you. Here is our top digital camera pick for the traveling nurse in your life.
It’s the FUJI XQ2! Not only has this digital camera been rated the easiest to use, but it’s also the most versatile. Set up and start shooting right out of the box. A quick auto-focus feature lets you capture live shots, beautiful scenery, and all those candid moments with new friends. Travel nurses not only want to see the world, but they also want to capture it. This little, easy-to-use, professional style camera will help them do that. Maybe they’ll share some great photos with you!
