National Nurses Week 2023
National Nurse’s Week is all about giving nursing professionals their flowers, both literally and figuratively. It is celebrated each May, beginning on the 6th and ending on the 12th.
Nurses are on the front lines of patient care, but at times their sacrifice goes unnoticed. They work long hours caring for patients during some of their most vulnerable times in life. Nurses also juggle a variety of hats. They are caretakers, advocates, therapists, friends, and family to those in their care.
Nurse’s Week begins with National Nurses Day on May 6th, National Student Nurses Day on May 8th, National School Nurses Day on May 10th, and International Nurses Day on May 12th; which is also Florence Nightingale’s Birthday.
Take a moment to celebrate the nurses in your life, whether they are family or perhaps someone who has nursed you back to health. Here are a few contests/giveaways being held during National Nurses Week:
1. Chipotle – Enter for a chance to win a burrito care package for your team. Contest ends on 5/12.
2. Bayada- One lucky winner will receive a room makeover for any room of their choice.
3. Crocs- Crocs is offering healthcare workers 25% off full prices styles (must verify status through Sheer ID).
Happy Nurses Week to all of the nurses out there! If you are a nurse and looking for a job opportunity, contact us today!
