20 Best Gifts For Male Nurses 2022

Finding the perfect gift for your favorite nurse can be difficult - finding it for your favorite male nurse can be even more challenging. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), as of 2019 more than 12% of Registered Nurses in the U.S. are men. In an otherwise female dominant profession, it’s important to thank those important male nurses as well. 

Nurse.org has compiled a great list of male-approved gifts!
