    Um...there's an ER nurses week? Ideas for what? You mean something to give the nurses or a party or something? What's your budget?

    Check the ENA website, there are plenty of ideas. But to make it special have a specific compliment for each and every staff member to go along with the gift. (don't forget the CNA's and LPN's) Then put it in writing and include a cc: to the VP of nursing with a copy in their personel folder. Then make a group announcement that you as a manager will back them up 365 days a year and do it. You could give out toothpicks and be a hero ! (TIC)
    PS: You asked.. so you're hearts in the right place, good for you and your team!

    ER nurses week starts October 8 (I think) this year.

    I am a NP in the ER. I will be buying lunch for both shifts one day that week and encouraging others to do the same. I hope we can feed the staff nurses that make us look good all week.

    Also, on the days I work that week, I will do everything in my power to be sure they have time to enjoy that lunch. I can't sign out meds from the machine, but I can do everything else whilst the staff nurses have a chance to eat.

    Thank you so much!!! I bet it is an honor to work with you, and I am sure your co-workers will be grateful for your thoughtfulness!

    I do not know what your budbet is but we are purchasing and giving all of our nurses the LWW pocket handbook "ER NURSING FACTS INCREDIBLY EASY". It retails for 21.95, but if you call Lippincott, williams and Wilkins, they will give you 20% off and free shipping. For 100 pocketguides it cost $1700. We are asking the MD's to pay for them.
