Nurses Week Giveaways 2017

Nurses Week

It’s that time of year again… It’s NURSES WEEK! That one week we are really good at tooting our own horns and enjoying the love that everyone shows us. It’s a week of free lunches, maybe some massages, a free mug, or even a beach towel. Actually heard of a hospital in Florida where the medical staff gave every nurse in their hospital a new Littmann Cardiology IV stethoscope. (I am a huge Littmann fan – best warranty ever!) Now, that is a nice gift!

Have you ever wondered what the origins of Nurses Week? Oh, just me? ….well, if you are curious, here’s the history of how we go to this week!

But to add to the fun, lots of bloggers and companies love to do Nurses Week Giveaways….so here’s your round up of all the fun and free gifts!!

What nurses really want for Nurses Week

Nurses Week

Having been a nurse for over 18 years, I have endured a few Nurses Week. At first I was lured into the charm of my first “Nurses Week” bag. I had finally arrived – my first official nurses bag. I had arrived and for a full week, the folks at the hospital seemed to actually appreciate what we did for our patients. After a few mugs, key chains, beach towels and more bags, the charm quickly grew off.

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!
