I posted this on the survey site as well, but wanted to ask my fellow leaders what they have planned or have done in the past to recognize staff for Nurses' Week.... Read More
- 0Mar 20, '05 by jnette GuideQuote from WashYaHandsI work with 30 people. Ten of us are nurses. During a special nurses week staff meeting it was announced that in our honor the company would be donating $20,000 to the local nursing college to provide ten $2,000 need based scholarships for local nursing students. The student recipients sent thank-you letters and those were shared with us as well. This was the most meaningful gesture I've ever experienced to honor nurses during nurses week.
That really IS great ! :wink2:
- 0Mar 21, '05 by R.T.Last year, our hospita finally made the transition for recruitment to retention of employees. I have worked at the facility for 9 years. The facility still has a long way to go. For nurse's week, they had a catered dinner for 4 nights. Nurses from all departments were invited to attend. Each night nurses were placed in drawings for various prizes (dvd player, gift certificate for 2 day pass to a spa with paid leave, and grand proze of a 4 day Caribbean cruise with extra vacation time.) I know the nursing staff really enjoyed it. The had motivational speakers. This year, we are not sure of the plans, but are anticipating another dinner. Just the thought of being appreciated helps. I work in the OR, and we gave out door prizes and also had a cake. We also do the same for Perioperative Nurse's week. We have pizza parties every 4 months and we do include the evening shift. We sincerely try to convey how much we appreciate the nurses for their hard work and dedication .

Usually they feed us and give us a pen or cup.
