4. Waterproof Kindle Paperwhite
When you need a way to quickly destress, sometimes reading a book is a great option. You can get lost in the book or even learn, with a non-fiction option. It has a lot of storage which is good for holding comics, magazines, and audiobooks. This model has a battery that can last for weeks.
5. Mug Warmer
Tired of cold coffee? This convenient gadget will keep your coffee warm for hours, in any kind of cup. It can work with stainless steel cups, mugs, and glass cups. It has a waterproof design, so you won’t have to worry about it damaging it in case you accidentally spilled water on it.
6. Posture Sensor
On a busy day, nurses can sometimes forget about good posture and as a result, they may deal with lower back pain after work.

7. Vein Finder
Available only in the US, this transilluminator vein finder is designed to help nurses find veins both in adults and children. This super useful tool can also help to close veins and stretch the skin for easier access without the use of a tourniquet.
