It’s finally here – Nurses’ Week 2015!
If you can’t tell, I love Nurses’ Week!
I love to have a week to reflect and celebrate nursing. Sure, we should celebrate nursing everyday, every week. But, being nurses, we don’t like a lot of spot light on ourselves. We take care of our patients; it’s what we do. And we do it well – the Gallup poll reports again that nurses are still the most trusted profession!
If you’d like to learn more about the history of nursing, check out this article. You might be surprised, it hasn’t been around as long as you might think…
So, in honor of Nurses Week, many of you will be getting your token gift from your employer – maybe a mug, a pen or if your lucky, a free meal in the cafeteria that you never get to go eat at because you are so busy! (And recently I heard some employers have got rid of Nurses’ Week altogether, in exchange of “Hospital Week” – whatever!)
Well, I have some good news – in exchange for being my awesome readers and super awesome nurses, I have rounded up some spectacular gifts to give you all!! They are things nurses want and some are from companies who are made by nurses! Bonus!!
So without further ado – here’s what I am going to giveaway to my awesome nurse peeps!
These are easily the BEST nurses socks! I was late to the whole compression sock scene, and I regret waiting so long! These were created by an ICU nurse and you can’t beat the great designs!! Three lucky winners will get to treat their legs with love with their own pair of Nabee Socks!
Medical Scrubs Collection, a fantastic scrubs company located in New Jersey wants to give a lucky winner a pair of Grey’s Anatomy scrubs! They specialize in extraordinary customer service, coupled with a love for the “Heroes in the Scrubs”. They offer top quality at excellent prices, frequent sales, rewards points, and the newest scrubs when they’re still new. Go show them some love!!
Well this year, one of the most compelling books about nursing came out – The Nurses: A Year of Secrets, Drama and Miracles with the Heroes of the Hospital. I was truly mesmerized by how author Alexandra Robbins so accurately described the life and work of nurses. You can read more about my gushing over this book here. OH MY WORD is all I have to say! One lucky winner is going to get an awesome hard copy!!
If you’ve been around the nursing social media / web world – you likely have come across Kati Kleber – better known as Nurse Eye Roll! Last year she put together all her straight talk, encouraging advice in Becoming Nursey: From Code Blues to Code Browns, How to Care for Your Patients and Yourself. She continues her love for nursing by giving away an autographed copy to one fabulous nurse!
A few months ago, I had the honor of reading this fantastic book From Frustrated to Fulfilled: The Empowered Nurses’ System. It is unparallelled advice from a very diverse set of nurses, edited by Lorie Brown, RN, MN, JD. She discusses her route to becoming an attorney after finding herself very frustrated. She shares her journey to fulfillment along with other nursing experts. She has graciously donated one free copy for one of my readers. After reading this book, you will have a set of tools to tackle your next shift
Many nurses fret about “being sued” and more importantly, loosing their precious license. But Lorie Brown, RN, MN, JD has some words of wisdom for you in Law and Order for Nurses: The Easy Way to Protect Your License and Your Livelihood. She shares her stories and experience in protecting nurses as they fought to protect their most valuable asset, their license. She is giving away one free copy of this valuable book!!

So, to celebrate their love for nurses, they are giving a $50 e-gift card to one lucky reader!!

What could feel better after a long shift, than a nice heat pack to the lower back or neck! These unique heat / cool therapy pads are made from cherry pits and can be found at Nurse Born Products. The cherry pits are from a pitting factory in the USA and are sanitized before used for the therapy pads. They can be warmed in the microwave or placed in the freezer – what ever your needs.
