Nurses' Day

Ainhoa13 Ainhoa13 (New) New


I've just joined allnurses.com today! I am an spanish nurse working in the adult intensive care unit in London, UK.

I would like to know if in your hospitals there is some activity organize in the week of the International Nurses' Day on the 12th of May, as I want to organize something in my unit too.

I would appreciate you sharing any ideas you have!

Thank you very much!

In the US, National Nurses' Day is May 6. Nurses' Week is May 6-12.

My last 2 jobs have given us gift certificates. I forget what the hospital did when I worked there. I think put a banner up that said "Happy Nurses' Week" and maybe gave us a pen with the hospital logo on it.

Well, nurses are the biggest support group for nurses so how about creating a poster in the unit and display some of the responses you get here from your post. I bet it would be quite encouraging for staff there to read responses from nurses abroad and elsewhere. We're different but we're all the same. Welcome to allnurses.com!!
