May 6th marks the beginning of National Nurses Week in the US, bundling together National Student Nurses Day and National School Nurse Day in the run up to International Nurses Day on the 12th—a day that also happens to be the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth.
National Nurses Week, of course, begins with National Nurses Day, and this year’s celebrations come at a time when the hard work of our frontline healthcare professionals is more important than ever before. In fact, as the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, celebrating the sacrifices nurses make on a daily basis seems particularly timely.
So, to mark the occasion here at All Seasons Uniforms, we’re offering 20% off our scrub and lab coat lines. Featuring brands such as Landau, Smitten, Urbane, WonderWink, and Red Kap, for anyone looking to buy National Nurses Week gifts, or simply stock up on everyday essentials, here’s the place to start!
However, if you really want to spoil your favorite nurse, or you want to donate something to your local healthcare facility, you can also check out our National Nurses Week gift ideas here! Read on and discover how you can bring a smile to the face of our national lifesavers.
National Nurses Week Ideas – Gifts for The Nurse in Your Life
If you’re looking for National Nurses Week gift ideas, the look no further, here we have everything a nurse could possibly want or need, and a few things that are sure to help show your appreciation for all their hard work.
Scrubs and Lab Coats
Nurses go through scrubs and lab coats fast, and whether they’re stained, ripped, or just plain threadbare, there’s always a need for spare sets. Luckily for you, All Seasons Uniforms has a huge range of these everyday essentials with 20% off—so you can buy a National Nurses Week gift that is always welcome. Browse the range here and grab your discount throughout the week.
Stylish Face Masks
Whether we like it or not, wearing face masks in public is here for the foreseeable future. However, while your favorite nurse will have access to PPE at work, the high demand for this equipment means she’s unlikely to have her own, personal face mask. Today, of course, with the rise in demand for “fashion masks”, you can really push the boat out and grab a stylish face mask from a fashion brand that adds a bit of sophistication to this utilitarian look.
For something really special, then a piece of wearable tech may be just what your favorite nurse needs. Both the Apple Watch and Fitbit’s range of devices are designed for people on the go, and they can help nurses monitor their own health as they look after that of others. In the case of the Apple Watch, they’re also super useful for communication while on the move, something that busy nurses everywhere will appreciate.
Unsurprisingly, metal rings cannot be worn in healthcare environments as they rip gloves and cause other issues. However, whether you’re about to propose to the nurse in your life, or not wearing a ring is simply out of the question, there is a solution. Medical-grade silicon rings are the answer, and they can be worn in most environments. They’re easy to clean and won’t rip gloves. They’re also pretty stylish!
Remember, it’s not just the existing nurses we’re celebrating here, but the future ones too. So, for the student nurses of the world, a little extra education is probably a good idea. Buying a set of nursing reference cards for National Nursing Week then, is the perfect gift. Not only do they provide all the information nurses need, but they can also be carried around on a lanyard for easy access while gaining valuable clinical experience.
Make a Donation
If you don’t have a hardworking nurse in your life, then it’s still possible to mark National Nurses Week by making a donation. There are so many worthy causes out there that it’s difficult to choose a single one, however, a good place to start may be giving to an organisation set up to help nurses affected by the current crisis here.
