Nurses are in the profession of giving and service. They are selfless, sacrificial, and hard working. Over the past year, they have been in the trenches caring for you, me, and the rest of the world during the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to show your appreciation for the countless hours they have spent caring for us all, take a few moments out of your day to thank a nurse.

Nurses Week 2021 is the perfect time to reflect on the impact that nurses have made in your own or a loved one’s life and how you can pay your respects to the endless hard work that they put in each day.

At this point, you may be asking yourself, ‘What is Nurses Week, and how can I celebrate?’

Nurses Week 2021, Upcoming Deals

What is Nurses Week, and When is It?

Nurses Week is an annual, week-long celebration of all nurses. It is celebrated to recognize the sacrificial dedication, love, and care that nurses give to their patients and families.

While one week is not enough to recognize their impact on us, people all over the US take this week to express their gratitude by sharing kind words and appreciation for the work they do 24/7, 365 days a year.

Nurses Week 2020 was recognized as the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale and the Year of the Nurse and Midwife.

Now, for Nursing Week 2021, we are still wrestling with the lasting effects of the pandemic. Front-line nurses, along with other interdisciplinary healthcare members, are struggling to care for those who have been affected. For this reason, the American Nurses Association has extended the year of the Nurse and Midwife into Nurses Week 2021.

How Can You Celebrate a Nurse?

More often than not, nursing is a thankless profession. Many nurses are in the field to serve others, with no regard for any recognition. Despite the selfless nature of the profession, nurses deserve recognition and appreciation. Here are a few ways to celebrate and show a nurse your appreciation for their endless service: 


  • Embroidered scrubs 
  • Personalized tote bag 
  • Nurse themed coffee mug 


  • Cook a homemade dinner for your favorite nurse. 
  • Give a gift card to their favorite restaurant. 
  • Surprise them with take-out or delivery. 

Homemade Gifts

  • Hand-written cards 
  • ‘Thank you’ videos
  • Goodie bags

Although Nursing Week 2021 isn’t here yet, it’s never too early to thank a nurse. They are the ones who will be by your side when you need it the most!
