Just a few months ago, we retooled our whole website to hand over the power of choice to you, so you can decide who gets to call you about jobs. With Nurses Week, we’re going to do the same!
We will send out all kinds of fun and useful Nurses Week gifts — and we want you to tell us which nurses we should be sending them to. (You, for example! Or your favorite colleague!)
We will also donate $1,000 to charities that help nurses — and we want you to tell us which charity we should support.
Because just like with the jobs on this website, it should be all your call! You’re nurses, after all: you know best. We’re just here to help you!
New Nurses Week gifts every day
Maybe you remember from last year how this works? We sent out a total of 64 Nurses Week presents to nurses all around the country! Penlights, badge reels, coloring books, reference card sets, blood cell plushies, nurse cartoon books — each day we selected a new kind of gift. And each day we asked you to nominate the nurses we sent the gifts to!
This year, too, we will spend Nurses Week listening to you. All you have to do is respond to one of our daily posts on Facebook, Insta, Twitter or LinkedIn and nominate a nurse. Maybe you want us to send a Nurses Week gift to your nurse bestie! Or your nurse mentor, or your brother or daughter who is a great nurse. But yes, you’re also welcome to nominate yourself, because we know how hard you’ve all worked this year!
We will send out multiple gifts every day, always picking out high-quality products and looking for nurse entrepreneurs to support. We have already found some great options, but we will also welcome suggestions of your own! And to hand complete control to you, there will be at least one day when we send out cash gifts or gift cards.
Investing in care for nurses: our Nurses Week donation
Nurses Week gifts are fun, and who doesn’t deserve a small gesture of kindness? But at NurseRecruiter we also want to use Nurses Week for a more substantial investment to improve the lives of nurses. Because we hear you: what you really need most isn’t more pizza or a tote bag, but to be taken seriously and receive the care and working conditions you deserve.
That’s why we will donate $1,000 to nursing-related charities. Just like we made donations to Support Our Scrubs in the last two Nurses Weeks, and to SONSIEL at the peak of the first Covid wave when they were providing healthcare workers on the front line with PPE. And you can help us decide!
We have listed some suggestions below, and throughout Nurses Week we will highlight individual organizations that are doing important work. And if you think one is missing, let us know and we’ll include them in our posts as well! Whenever you think, “wow, I love what this organization is doing,” tell us in the replies! Comment, share, pass on the word, let us know right here on the blog if you’d like! Based on your feedback we will select one or more beneficiaries at the end of the week.
