I saw an old coworker of mine post "happy nurses week!", on Facebook, addressed to other former coworkers. I'm just interested to see if my company even bothers to acknowledge nurses week. I like my current job but I don't like how we nurses are treated there.

We're celebrating Monday thru Friday but it's all things we planned ourselves. The only thing the company is doing is a poster session showcasing nursing research.

Oh, is it Nurses' week? At my hospital, it's DAYSHIFT nurses' week, but us night-shifters, well...let's just say apparently we don't matter one bit apparently. As usual.

We get ignored during Nurse's Week. They have "Hospital Week" later in the month to celebrate everyone. However, Respiratory, Lab, and Radiology all get stuff on their own weeks throughout the year in addition to goodies and celebrations during Hospital week. Nurses always get shafted. Especially night shifters.

For the first time: a banquet at a local 4 star hotel, with awards, door prizes, an insulated lunch bag with the company logo and a wallet that protects cards from being scanned and a "kudos" bar in it, wine/beer free at the bar, and a DJ to run some dance music after. Was really good roast beef, and a pasta bar! You and a guest.
