5 Ways to Thank a Nurse During Nurses Week
Every year, nurses around the country are celebrated for one week during the beginning of May – recognizing all of the amazing things they do for their patients, communities, families, and loved ones. Team Select was proud to honor its entire nursing staff through a variety of goodie boxes, t-shirts, and company recognition events during this year’s National Nurses Week, May 6th through May 12th.
How do we recognize someone we love during National Nurses Week?
While there are many ways to show that you are thankful for everything your favorite nurse does, we are here to help come up with some creative ways to thank them during this special week!
- Write a personalized thank you note
A handwritten “Thank You” can go a long way. This note is something that nurses can keep on their desk or can place somewhere in their home as a reminder that they are forever appreciated and supported in the daily care they provide.
- Give a social media shoutout
Sharing your public show of support for a nurse or local nurses at a nearby facility on your social media accounts is a great opportunity to reach a wider audience! You can use #NursesWeek to help spread awareness about National Nurses Week!
- Food, food, food!
Whether they work in a hospital, care facility, or in a patient’s home, dropping off lunch or helping cook their favorite meal during a busy week is a “yummy” way to show your appreciation.
- A goodie basket full of nursing essentials
Gifting your favorite nurse a few nursing essentials like a brand-new stethoscope or pair of compression socks for long shifts on their feet is a great way to say “Thank You” for all they do to keep our communities and loved ones safe and healthy!
- Active listening
Oftentimes, as a friend, family member, or loved one – we forget what goes on during a nurse’s day at work. Medication management and planning, seeing a patient improve or decline in health, communicating important health updates with a patient’s family, and so much more. This can be emotionally tolling and sometimes physically draining. Being an active listener when you ask about their day can go a long way.
