Nurses Week/Hospital Week - page 6
Am I the only one that thinks whomever started hospital week purposefully made it the same week as nurses week to avoid having to recognize nurses? Or am I just a crazed conspiracy theorist?... Read More
May 4, '13 by LadyFree28, BSN, RNMost places I work in my area are very involved in Nurses Week. Hospital Week gets their own week.
Things I have recieved in the past: 20-30 minute massages: 2000-2005; 2008-present (different orgs, btw), gift cards from stores, local restaurants, nightingale pledges, daily goodies, raffles, free USABLE items-coffee mugs, blankets, lunch bags, messenger bags...the best item I received was a hand-blown glass mug...I've had this mug for over five years and its my favorite-besides my Wonder Woman mug
I am appreciative of working at places that do celebrate nurses, However, I like being a nurse. I really don't need the gifts. I appreciate the work we do...NURSES ROCK!!!
Flame me if you must, but this is MY OPINION and I'm sticking to it!!!Last edit by LadyFree28 on May 4, '13

Your employer should do a better job of showing you that you are valuable.
