Any other places doing "Hospital Employees' Week" instead of Nurses' Week?

Apparently nurses get too much attention or something.

I worked for a healthcare system that did that, it had a much more pretentious name for it, though. (So smug that I forget what it is.)

And I'm a bit steamed that Teachers' Week aligns with ours. They couldn't do that a different week?

It's a conspiracy:

Although this may come off as "crusty", I think the whole "fill-in-the-blank day/week" concept is sort of condescending...

You mean you didn't celebrate National Penguin Day??!

Hospital Week!!

Bring it on.

It totally eliminates that "P on my leg and tell me it's raining" thing that has been going on with Nurse's Week for awhile now.

I'm all for Truth in Celebrating!

Eh. I'm not sure I care. We do a lot of nurse-centric activities during the week. But all of our nursing, support staff and friend of nursing type awards are given out during this week.

The school I'm attending for my Master's degree manager to top that in a not so awesome way. In our weekly newsletter they call out whatever professional specialty week it may be and recognize that specialty. Literally, every specialty recognition known to man. Just not perioperative nurses because that happens to be the same week as national nurse practitioner week or some bs like that. Oooh wait, that's right...we're not "real" nurses according to most other specialties. We can forget about being considered "real" by most established academics...right up until they need a procedure and ask us what will happen, how, why and which provider is the best to see...

I remember when our DON dressed up like Marilyn Monroe and handed out popcorn from a cart. It was a real wtf moment. Some of you are lucky to only get pens.

I don't think I believed it was happening, even when I was there in person. The other "bosses" were dressed up, too ...can't remember what as, though.
