Do you know what we celebrate on May 12th? Probably you will have no clue if you haven’t read the title, but if you do know, it is perhaps because there is an exceptional nurse in your life. That’s right! We celebrate all that nurses do for us this day by sharing the best ways to observe International Nurses Day and some gift ideas to give you the full package to help you spoil your favorite nurse!
Nurses worldwide are recognized during this day, picked by the International Council of Nurses, to commemorate the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. With all the hard work nurses do, we can show them the appreciation they deserve by doing some of the following ideas for celebrating International Nurses Day.
Highlight them on social media
The nursing profession always deserved respect. But this year, being on the frontline, as they always are, made everyone realize the significant value of their work. The incredible effort nurses have made this past year until today is impressive, to say the least.
An excellent way to spread the word about all the appreciation they deserve is through social media. Sharing images or videos highlighting their work will give them a bit of inspiration to get through these challenging times. Plus it is something free that everyone can do just using their mobile phone.
Sent them thank you cards
Receiving a cute text is nice, but do you know what is even better? Receiving a handwritten thank you note. The fact that you took the extra time to make it will give it a more meaningful touch.
Give them a gift
Everyone loves receiving gifts, that is a fact. But someone taking the extra effort to find a thank you gift for nurses to surprise them will make the smile on their faces a more rewarding experience. At TeeChip, we have the best gifts for nurses to help you get something perfect to spoil every nurse you know on their day.
Listen to them or let them share their stories
Every human being deserves to be heard and to have safe spaces where they can share their story. Help give nurses a voice by giving them space to do just that. You never know who could be hearing them, and some people might have the power to make a change to improve their work conditions or help in some other way in the healthcare space.
