It has been a while, but I once did a cake for a nurse that was a half exposed bottom with a fondant blanket covering the other part and a fondant / gumpaste shot/needle.

It depends on the look you want. I did a retirement cake for a co-worker (I am a nurse) and fasioned a stethoscope out of fondant to add to it (it's in my photos). But overall the cake was not "nursey." Or you could make an assortment of nursing items: cap, syringe, pills, etc. Are you doing a sheet cake or a stacked cake? That would help with knowing how to design.

I'm not sure yet if I'm going to make a sheet cake or a stacked cake.. I'm leaning more towards a stacked cake.. But maybe just one tier.. It only has to feed about 10 ppl.

Keep the ideas coming.. I'm trying to draw up some sketches over here!!

I did a buttercream cake and drew a picture of an angel wearing a nurse's cap. It said "Nurses are Angels in Disguise"! It was really cute.

how about a needle? that would be a cool cake.
I did a cake with a nurses hat on it, it was made out of fondant.

I made a scrubs cake for a nurse. I baked a sheet cake then cut the shape of a scrubs shirt out, covered it in fondant, and added details. I made a stethoscope to hang around the neck, two pockets with tools in them, a name tag with her name on it, a v-neck with stitching and the sleeves and trim had "stitches". I drew the shape out on wax paper first, folded it in half before i cut it out so that it would be symmetrical. I used that template to cut the shirt out. Good Luck!
