May 6-12 each year, starting with different days each year but always the same date :)

well - dayshift has their cutsie activities like wear bows in your hair and crazy sock day .

One has to wonder if other professions' "yay us" Day includes bows in their hair and silly socks? Nothing like furthering our image, I always say.... :sarcastic:

The health system I work for is currently going live at one last location during this week and next so they will delay nurses week celebrations until the week of 5/19. I am not sure what will be planned but as usual the fun activities will be day shift only.

I got something like this from my son's school too. On Monday they were wearing super hero capes at school. I know on Friday I think they want the kids to bring a single flower for the teacher. I thought it was kind of strange.

One of the local coffee places was advertising last year that if you are a teacher you can get a free cup of coffee. Hey what about us nurses LOL?

This year Nurses' Week coincides with our Joint Commission survey. So much for Chanukah! Everyone has promptly forgotten about Nurses' Week in their mad scramble to make everything pretty.

LOL us too! They did wish the hospital reps a happy nurse's day though. How thoughtful of them!

Clearly, it's for the neglected night staffers who get less love than the day shifters ;)
