    I think you are being somewhat short-sighted. Tell the powers that be how much you all like the book. Read the book. Ask that you have a task force to implement the nursing theories in the book. I don't know of any theorist that conceives of nursing as nonstop customer service with no breaks or meals for the hop-till-you-drop RN. I think you got a gift from heaven if you use it right.

    Got a card and a small paper date book for 2009, and some turkey wraps for lunch. My hubby sent me a bouquet of flowers for Nurses' Day. He knows it means a lot to me.:flowersfo

    Our facility got a crappy copied poem inside a handmade card, all that was written was "Thanks for all you do" and by the way was late, believe me, we were less than enthused about our "gift". Last year I was a nursing supervisor, and got a cool t-shirt, with a coffee mug that matched, a fancy card that all of management signed and a bag of candy, then I went back to being a floor nurse due to family issues, I wonder what the supervisors got this year??:angryfire

    Question....have you ever seen a book on healthcare admin for bosses day?...or nothing on Dr's day? You bet your sweet bippy you haven't. I did like the idea about recognising each other.....Nice way to build a caring team...Kudos to classic for the idea.

    You know with financial cutbacks, high unemployment and the recession I am happy I am still working and have medical insuracne. We also had a nurses day not a week and no gift but we made our own day. Perhaps you and your co-workers could start your own yearly nurses week celebration.
