April showers will soon give way to May flowers, which also means it’s almost time for Nurses Week!
National Nurses Week is celebrated May 6-12 each year, ending on nursing icon Florence Nightingale’s birthday.
Medical Solutions thinks nurses are a BIG deal, so naturally, we like to make a really big deal out of celebrating the selfless, talented, dedicated, amazing, unsung heroes of healthcare. We hope you’ll celebrate Nurses Week 2016 with Medical Solutions — or rather, allow us to properly celebrate YOU! Here’s what we’ve got going on over at our Nurses Week site WeLoveOurNurses.com:
We Heart RNs Tribute Video
It’s true: We LOVE RNs. And CNAs, LPNs, NPs — ALL of the amazing nursing professionals who are out there giving their all in the name of excellent patient care. So this year, Medical Solutions gathered together our team, members of the community, and some very special guests to honor nurses by creating a very special tribute video which will be revealed on May 6 to kick off Nurses Week festivities.
#NurseLaughLove Instagram Contest
We know our Travel Nurses love the work they do, which got us curious about their other passions in life. Nurses are welcome to enter this contest by sharing pictures of whatever they want to profess their love for to Instagram with the hashtag #NurseLaughLove. Profile must be public for entry to count and entrants are eligible to win one of 10 Amazon gift cards varying in amounts from $50 to $100 to — grand prize — $250! Get creative and show us the love, nurses!
The 5th Annual Nurses of Tomorrow Scholarship
For the fifth year running, Medical Solutions will host and fund the Nurses of Tomorrow Scholarship Contest. In light of the ever-growing nationwide nurse shortage, our team wants to support the education and development of future nurses and nurse leaders. Three lucky nurse scholars will each win a $2,000 scholarship to put towards their education costs!
Show ’em the Love Mentor Contest
Strong nursing mentors help create strong nurses and nurse leaders. Most nurses have a mentor or two who really stand out as having helped make them the nurse they are today. So, tell us: Who is your beloved mentor — the wind beneath your nursing wings — and why? Three mentor/mentee pairs will be randomly chosen as winners. All six will win a $100 Ulta gift card and the three winning mentees will also each win a $50 Tafford Uniforms gift card!
