Florence Nightingale built a roadmap for nursing in the 19th century. Nightingale’s birthday marks the last day of Nurses Appreciation Week, a tribute to professional and student nurses. Check out our ideas to thank your nurses in the best way.
The nursing profession is imperative for daily patient care. Students rely on nurses for health care exams, like school physicals and education. The profession is vast; there are about 104 nursing specialties, indicating the need for nurses in many healthcare fields. Countless hours of studying and clinical practice are required to earn a bachelor’s degree in the field and pass their board exams to become registered. Professionals and students alike deserve to be recognized for the hard work they do all year. Show you care during Nurses Appreciation Week.
Honor the nurses at your medical facility by giving them a break. These men and women are usually on their feet for hours performing patient care, routine check-ups and blood tests and so much more. Give them some time to relax with a luncheon during the week. After a delicious meal, seal your appreciation with a surprise gift, such as our Ceramic Sahara Mug. This hand-dipped mug can bear any message or image right on the front.
Show your thanks with a Nurse’s Appreciation Week banquet in their honor. Give a thoughtful gift; customize our 4”x 6” Chrome Border Picture Frame with your logo. Then add a photograph of their nursing family. This gift will represent a great, lasting memory of their nursing colleagues.
“National School Nurse Day” falls on the Wednesday during Nurses Appreciation Week. Whether your school nurse delivers care to children or young adults, his or her job requires patience and a great deal of energy. Give them a customized Color Wave Stainless Steel Travel Mug - 16 oz. on this special day of appreciation.
University faculty can show appreciation for the hard work nursing students put in on May 8, “National Student Nurses Day.” Give them a personalized gift commemorating their hard work that also holds some of their books, such as a Color Splash Side Sling Pack. This bag is made with an extra-durable polyester fabric with an additional 4-inch compartment for extra storage. It features an ear bud port so they can listen to music on-the-go while the backpack holds their music player. Also consider the Mini-Tote Lunch Bag, which is foil-lined on the inside to keep food contents cold longer. This canvas bag is also a trendy way to showcase your school’s name.
Show nurses some appreciation all year long. Give back to those who work hard to keep us healthy by celebrating Nurses Appreciation Month. Make their week a little more rewarding with gifts that show your thanks.
