What Can I Do to Celebrate?

There are so many ways that you can show your appreciation for nurses!  

Whether you are looking to send them a small care package or simply spend some quality time with them during their days off, it truly will mean the world to them. 

Especially over the course of the last two years with the COVID-19 pandemic, nurses have been struggling to stay afloat with increased burnout rates, staffing shortages, and lack of administrative support.  

If you have a nurse (or nurses) in your life, be sure to tell them that you recognize the hard work they do each day and thank them for the many sacrifices they make – it doesn’t take a holiday to do this either!
