Ideas to Celebrate National Nurses Week This Year

Nurses are often the unsung heroes of the health care industry. Day after day, they put in the hours to help patients achieve recovery. This National Nurses Week, take some time to show your nursing staff you recognize and appreciate them. Check out some of our ideas to celebrate National Nurses Week below.

1. Hand out Goodie Bags

Who would turn down free stuff? Put together a gift bag for each of the nurses on your staff. You can make them as general or as personalized as you wish — or as your budget allows. Here’s some inspiration for items to put in each bag:

  • Thank-you note
  • Gift card
  • T-shirt
  • ID lanyard
  • Candy or snacks
  • Lotion

2. Highlight a Nurse Each Day

Make a highlight bulletin board and feature a different nurse’s accomplishments each day. You can feature one nurse in your department daily or choose a nurse from each department in your facility. Note their position and how long they’ve been at your facility, including some fun facts about them. If you haven’t done this before, start this year and make it an annual tradition!
