    Ummm... I'd be happy to make a big thing of National Nurses Week if we had, say, "National Accountants Week" or "National Contractors Week."

    Then how about nurses with sweaty, red faces, Eating a hotdog on the run, and a foley catheter hanging on her side?
    You know one of those ads for nursing showing an ER nurse running a lighting speed (with appropriate out of focus shot)... we could have a similar shot show a nurse running at lighting speed, the hotdog and the whole bit, and then we have a really out of focus shot of the foley catheter on her side to create the impression of speed... Actually should have two foley catheter, one out of each pocket, or sort of flying out of the pocket... with the out of focus shot of the catheter, it might looks like wings... oh my goodness, nurses have wings, they are angels.... aaaaaggggghhhhhhhh!

    Funny, we complain when we don't get recognition, and we complain when we do, because "they" aren't doing it right. This is what is so sad about Nursing.

    Why not get on your hospital committe and make the kind of Recognition that says what you want it to say? Why not get speakers in to talk about what we can do as a profession to make it "right".

    Quite honestly, I do not understand why we look to Administration for the answers. Why not create your own "Professional" way to celebrate nursing?
