Show Love and Thanks This Nurse’s Day

Behind every patient in a hospital is a nurse who had dedicated his or her time to ensuring that the patient was well taken care of. Some nurses can put in as much as up to forty hours a week and some are responsible for multiple patients, so it can be said that nurses are just as hard working as their fellow doctors.

Nurse’s Day, which is May 6th, was proposed by Dorothy Sutherland of the US Department of Health, Education, and Welfare in 1953. Nurse’s Day actually marks the beginning of what is known as National Nurses Week – the week runs from May 6th to May 12th,  with the ending date being the birthdate of the famed founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale. Nurse’s Day aims to recognize the dedication and efforts of nurses in addition to educating the public on the hard work nurses put in to the health industry.

One great way to full-heartedly express your thanks to nurses is to give them a gift they will remember and always have at their desk, such as a personalized mug or keepsake plaque. Nothing can really compare to a present that is personalized, as it shows the sender put extra time and consideration into the gift giving process. And if the gift is coming from a patient, then that nurse will really remember the personal effect that he or she had. There’s really no substitute to giving back love to those who selflessly bestow it first. So this May 6th, set aside time to personally thank a nurse you’ve received love and care from.
