I cannot believe that the holidays are right around the corner! This year has gone by so quickly for me, from finishing up clinical rotations to PA school graduation and taking the PANCE, to finally starting work as an Emergency Medicine PA-C. Its been one big event after another, and as much as I’ve been loving hiding all of these milestones in my life, it’s made the year fly by. Soon it will be December, and I’ll get off orientation and be working shifts by myself! And I’ll be turning TWENTY-FIVE on December 31st. So I’m finishing off this year with a bang.
The holidays have always been on of my favorite times – mainly because I love the camaraderie of this time of year, and I love having the ability to gift my loved ones with things that they need. I pride myself on being a great gift giver, and finding personal, practical (but fun) gifts to give. I get a lot more happiness out of that than I do actually receiving Christmas and birthday present.
So this year, I wanted to do something extra special and share some of the items on my wish list as a health care provider. You’ll notice that scrubs aren’t on this list – and the reason for that is simple. I already buy scrubs on a regular basis, and I would rather ask for items that I don’t buy myself but would still love and use regularly. I also wanted to make this more general than just the specifics I use as an Emergency Medicine PA-C. So this list is great for that CNA, RN, student, MD/DO, etc in your life.
I hope you enjoy, and I would love if you share some of the great gifts you’re giving to that very special health care professional in your life!
