Working twelve-hour nursing shifts is not for the faint of heart; it can be physically and mentally exhausting. To help relieve this burden, having a well-packed nursing bag can make all the difference. Honestly, some nurses may look like modern-day Mary Poppins with all the essentials they store in their work bags! The items you carry in your nursing bag can be broken down into two categories, nurse bag essentials and extras.
These are some extras to include in your nurse kit bag as a nice quality of life and emergency stash for when things get stressful. They also serve as the perfect small gifts to include in thank you goodie bags for nurses.
Nurses are notorious for being ready for anything and are always willing to care for and help others. Caring for yourselves is another story, though. If you're well-stocked with nursing bag essentials and are ready for your workday, it can ease the pain of those lengthy and draining 12-hour shifts.
