National Nurses' Week

April 28, 2009

Don’t forget – National Nurses’ Week is May 6-12! Leave a comment and share what your organization is doing to show your appreciation for your nurses.
Here are just a few recognition ideas that have come from different Terryberry webcasts and events:
“We give ‘care awards’ for people that go above and beyond.”
“Our recognition events have a healthy theme.”
“We have a fun travelling trophy that is passed to someone new each day during the week.”
“To make our award presentations exciting, we ask some trivia questions about the recipient. Employees who guess right receive a small gift such as pens or pencils with our logo on it.”
“The awards we use are a star pin presented to the recipient with a note from a patient who experienced exceptional care.”
“We purchased small, stuffed alien toys. Managers present the aliens to nurses when they are caught doing something ‘out of this world.'”
