Nexus 3 speed hub and shifter question

hello all,
I am currently working on a 3 speed for my wife and I have a question. I am using a newer set of wheels off a crappy old madwagon bike. The wheels are in good shape and have a nexus 3 speed hub in good shape on it. The only thing is it has a grip shifter for shifting... which I do not care for. So my question is,
Can I use any old 3 speed trigger or do I need a specific one? I know this maybe a stupid inquiry but if anyone could point me in the right direction I would be happy. Thank.
