Let us send your favorite nurse a special Nurses Week gift!

What’s better than a thoughtful Nurses Week gift? A thoughtful Nurses Week from someone who knows you well! That’s why this year, we want to try out something different. Every day we’re going to give out different nurse gifts… to nurses of your choice!

Let us surprise your favourite colleague. Your nurse bestie. Or just any fellow nurse who could do with a bit of comfort or encouragement. Just check in with our daily posts on Facebook, Insta, Twitter or LinkedIn to see what gifts we’re sending out that day, and tell us who we should pick and why!

What if your favorite nurse is… you?

Self-care is important, and right now every nurse deserves a nice present. So don’t be shy if our daily gift is something you like… just nominate yourself! We get it, and we’ll pick several lucky winners each day.

We have our eyes on a range of Nurses Week gifts, and we’re thinking either fun — or practical. So one day it might be a Nurse Coloring Book for Adults, a Giant Microbe plushie, or an “It’s Fine” badge reel — another day something properly useful like a Breeze Report Book, a fancy hand cream, or a good pen light. All you need to do is show up in our replies on Facebook, Insta, TwitterLinkedIn — or even right here on our blog, where we will update this post every day.

DAY 1 — May 6: We’ll kick off the week with a rude little gift: the snarky Nurse Adult Coloring Book by Morgana Skye! Who should we send a copy to? Nominate yourself, or one of your colleagues or nurse friends in the comments or on our social media posts!

DAY 2 — May 7: We’ll be giving away 5 autographed copies of the cartoons book “Nurstoons: The Art of Nursing 2” by Carl Elbing.⁣ Who should we send one to and why? Nominate yourself or a nurse friend or colleague! 🤗

DAY 3 — May 8: Today we’re making several gifts of the badge reel that said it all, when it comes to this past year, featuring the iconic “It’s Fine” dumpster fire design.😁 If you prefer a kinder, gentler look, we can also gift you a cute Baby Yoda badge reel instead.😊 They’re both made by the same maker, Crystal Coffman — and she’s an ICU nurse herself! Nominate yourself or a nurse friend or colleague (and don’t forget to mention which one you’d like).

DAY 4 — May 9: After three days of fun mode we’re getting serious and professional with gold-standard TribeRN nurse tools which come with a lifetime guarantee. You can express a preference for one of these two gifts:
1️⃣ The single best-reviewed nursing penlight on Amazon, which is truly built to last and comes with interchangeable bright white light and soft warm light bulbs.
⁣2️⃣ The BadgeGuru Set of 26 badge-sized reference cards, printed on waterproof PVC and densely packed with vital information.
Both especially useful for new nurses — but not only for them of course! We’ll be giving out several of these, so nominate yourself or your favorite nurse, and let us know which of the two gifts it should be.

DAY 5 — May 10: Today we’re giving out several gift boxes full of adorable GIANTmicrobes plushies! They’re blood cells.. but a million times their actual size, and cuddly. Cute, and you can use them to cheer up and educate your patients! Tell us why you would love one for yourself or for your favorite colleague — like every day, we will pick several winners from across our social media accounts! 😊 ❤️

DAY 6 — May 11: We love to support a small, nurse-run business! That’s why we are giving away Breeze Report Books from Moxie PRN. How they work: you record patient information with sharpie pens, and erase them with alcohol swabs — every day again. No need to mess about with bulky clipboards or paper — you can feel extra organized with these stylish report books that come in three versions: one for MedSurg and PCU nurses; one for Labor and Delivery nurses; and one for CNAs and PCTs.
Do you know one of those who deserves some recognition and a useful Nurses Week gift? Or would you like to nominate yourself? Let us know in the replies here or on our social media posts, because we will give away a few of these!

DAY 7 — May 12: Every day this week we’ve been selecting different gifts for you. But today it’s your turn! What did we forget? What would YOU consider the best nurse gift?
If we select you as one of our winning entries today, we will order anything you’d like on Amazon (of up to $25) for your favorite nurse! And if the gift you’re thinking of is something that’s not practical for us to order online (like a bottle of wine for example), we’ll even send you the money via Paypal or Zelle instead.
So today, it’s in your hands! Tell us what gift we should send today to who — and as always, it’s also okay if your favorite nurse is… you. 💝 ⁣⁣

We support Support Our Scrubs!

Just over a year ago, the tireless mom of a Texas nurse saw Covid-19 spread across the US — and decided to do something. Rather than feed her anxieties, Crystella McIvor would feed nurses! She founded Support Our Scrubs, and that Nurses Week we joined her effort — and we are doing so again this year!

Photo: Support Our Scrubs Essential t-shirts

With our $1,000 donation, Crystella’s team will be bringing nurses at Children’s Medical Center Dallas a treat of Starbucks coffees and specially designed “Essential” t-shirts. They will use our contribution to give out “Essential” t-shirts as well to healthcare workers who attend the free yoga classes Support Our Scrubs organizes with Sarah Shiplett Yoga in Allen, TX.

Not from around there? Don’t worry — you can still enjoy the online library they created with on-demand yoga classes!

I’d like to nominate my twin sister Amber. She’s been a nurse for twelve years. She works hard, takes good care of her patients, and is very kind. She currently works in GI and worked in rehab prior to that.

I nominate myself. I have worked full time for the past 8 yrs in LTC facilities. This last year was so hard on the residents. I also am 1 semester away from graduation nursing school with my RN

My mom Jennifer is such an amazing hard worker and doesn’t stop working and never gives up to help my bad my siblings get a lot of stuff we want!

Love to all nurses that love what they do.

My sister Danisha is a public health nurse in a NYC public school. During Covid, she was misplaced in a NYC Level 1 Trauma center. She showed up everyday and the helped the nurses with their patients. She was had no hospital training but was willing to learn in order to help the patients.

    That is amazing! To be catapulted more or less by accident into one of the most challenging situations imaginable, and to adjust and persevere like that.. thank you, Danisha, for your work!

    We would like to select your entry as one of our winners for yesterday’s Nurses Week giveaway, and send your sister a copy of Morgana Skye’s snarky nurse adult coloring book we were giving away — if you think that kind of thing would be her style, of course!

    To get the order sorted at Amazon, we just need the relevant contact info — name, address, and phone number (for the delivery service in case they need to get in touch). We’ll leave it up to you whether we should send the book directly to her, or to you so you can give it in person!

    Could you send us the shipping info by emailing support@nurserecruiter.com, or through our website contact form at https://www.nurserecruiter.com/contact?

Compassionate and caring. Loves the babies like her own.

There are so many nurses that are my heroes. We travelled to NY and worked the Covid crisis at it’s worst spring 2020. Then we travelled to Texas and helped them at their worst summer through the fall and once again back to Texas this past spring. We have all suffered losses personal and personal and professional. I have lost 5 family members and 1 dear friend. We missed birthdays, holidays, anniversaries and family members milestones all while supporting our sick and dying and communicating with their families. We were their nurses, their support their surrogate family, sometimes the last person they saw, spoke to or held hands with. There were so many nurses that stayed in their current positions in their home town holding things together while we were away. Nurses in general are self sacrificing, caring and empathetic professional human beings.

    We are so sorry for your loss, Mary Ellen — for having to see so many family members pass away in this wretched year. But thank you for speaking out so eloquently and so movingly. Not just about the grief you and your colleagues have witnessed, but also about the immeasurable good all of you have done for those you cared for, in times when they were unable to see their own loved ones.

    As token of our appreciation we would like to select your comment as one of our winning entries for yesterday’s Nurses Week Giveaway. I’m not sure if the snarky coloring book is an appropriate gift for this context! But if you would appreciate it regardless, we’d be delighted to send you one.

My favorite nurse is someone I admire.
She excels at every task she is given. Tirelessly works until every project she is assigned to is completed to perfection. She is admired by her colleagues and her Supervisor’s. She is caring and considerate in her personal life as well. Always putting others before herself. This nurse never would expect anything from the Nurse Recruiter company she gives of herself because she wants too.

    She sounds like an incredibly impressive nurse, and you can tell her she has our gratitude and respect for the work she does! Thank you for sharing your tribute to her work, we appreciate it.

I am a agency nurse that works ICU, PACU & PreOp. I have been a nurse for almost 30 years. I have experienced a lot in that 28 years. Covid has been the most exhausting. I love my patients and nursing.

    I can imagine how exhausting a year this must have been, even when compared with everything you’ve seen in the 27 previous years. Thank you so much for your work, your compassion and your commitment!

It has been a long year and a half and this frontline is a privilege place to be.As a RN we are seeing the patients going through tough life changing events, and to know your smiling eyes may give this patient relief to just breathe, takes a lot of energy….Nurses, Healthcare workers, and a lot of professions are Amazing people who care enough to be there…

    You say it very well, Bianca! We have so much to thank the nurses for who keep working through this crisis and providing patients with some much-needed comfort and relief. Thank you for all that you do!

I have been a Nurse for 23 years caring for babies to the elderly. I love what I do and it makes me feel good to be able to help someone. I feel like my patients are my family and care for them as such. This last year has been hard, but we are pushing through. I wouldn’t do anything else

I’d like to nominate my best friend Amanda Carter. She’s been an RN for almost 10 years. She is a fantastic nurse. She is kind, compassionate, strong, and caring. All the best qualities of a nurse. She has put others first and has been through more in the last two years anyone should have to. All while pursuing an NP education. Being a mom, wife, daughter, sister, and full time as a RN. She’s an inspiration to me as an LPN and a friend.
