These standard sized ceramic Nightingale lamps are carried by graduates in a beautiful nursing ceremony unique to nurses, nursing assistants and other allied health professionals.
Because it is a battery powered flickering flame, in most places it is the only lamp that is allowed by Fire Marshalls' in public halls and auditoriums.
We stock plenty these lamps and sell them all though the year by the hundreds. But to be safe, please order them about 3-4 weeks before your graduation to avoid any shortage or last minute expensive air shipments.
If your class is interested in this lamp with a school emblem and/or gold bands on the lamp please see our related lamps (Please note that custom emblems or gold banding required a minimum of 12 lamps per order)
Makes a great gift from the family for the graduate. These lamps are also known by several names including:
* Nurses Lamps * Graduation Lamp * Nursing Lamps * Lamp of Knowledge * Nightingale Lamps Whatever your school calls them, our graduation lamps will make a wonderful addition to your pinning ceremony or reception for the graduates. It is a great keepsake for any nurse.
A Little Factoid: The symbol of the Lamp of Knowledge is part of where we get the phase "burning the midnight oil" in reference to studying late. Something these nursing and medical graduates know well. PLease Note that their is a 6 week lead time of these hand painted and fired lamps. If time is short please see our standard lamp
