Celebrating National Nurses Week

Did you know that National Nurses Week is May 6th - 12th?

This is a great time to recognize the nurses that provide exceptional care to patients all year round!  NursingWorld.org describes nursing as a "profession that embraces dedicated people with varied interests, strengths and passions because of the many opportunities the profession offers."  Nurses work in many different settings, some in emergency rooms, some in school based clinics and many in doctor's offices to name a few.  Nurses are often the glue that hold many medical offices together and they deserve to be celebrated!

The American Nurses Association posted several suggestions on how to celebrate National Nurses Week.  Here are just a few of them:

  • Hold a special celebration or reception to recognize a nurse or several nurses in your community. These nurses could be honored for heroic acts, years of service to the community, exemplary courage, or their commitment to the nursing profession over the years.
  • Promote a positive, realistic image of registered nurses by sponsoring health fairs, conducting preventive screenings in underserved areas, organizing a walk-a-thon, etc.
  • Place an article in your state or local newspaper(s) about National Nurses Week and the value of nurses. 
How do you plan to celebrate the nurses that play an important role in your organization?  Here are a few simple ways you can say "thank you" from your company.

Each of these items can be imprinted with your company information.  If you are looking for unique ideas to celebrate the Nurses in your life, contact us today!
