Nurses Week is Near!

Nurses Week is Near!

It’s almost what many in healthcare consider the most wonderful time of the year. Nurses Week, celebrated annually from May 6-12, is a fabulous opportunity to celebrate hardworking nurses who give their all as the backbone of the healthcare field.

Many healthcare staffing companies, particularly those specializing in nurse staffing, make a point to celebrate their travelers in a big way in recognition of Nurses Week. That can mean different things for different agencies, of course, from creating a Nurses Week microsite to sending gifts to your travelers and leads.

There are as many ways to celebrate as there are agencies, but the important thing is that your organization take the time to recognize this special week in some fashion, whatever it may be! Your travelers will appreciate the thought and it can help foster loyalty to your agency in the long run.

If you have yet to hatch a plan to recognize your nurses this Nurses Week, the American Nurses Association puts together a wonderful toolkit each year, with all kinds of resources to help you honor and celebrate your nurses. There is also info on this year’s theme, which is “Nurses Inspire Innovate Influence.”   

NATHO wishes you a happy Nurses Week and a fruitful celebration!
