It’s that time of year again – This week is Nurses Week and May 12th is International Nurses Day.

Each year on May 12th, we mark our calendars as a day to celebrate the hard-working nursing staff that gives so much on a daily basis. Why May 12th? It’s the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the well-known founder of modern nursing who led the way in promoting the proper care of patients.  Whether you are an employer or patient, take time to recognize the nursing staff in your life – today and everyday.

There are few careers that demand as much emotional and physical demand as the nursing field. While many nurses will tell you that the reward of their job lies in knowing they helped a patient, it is important that we let our nurses know just how much we appreciate them.

Letting Nurses Know We Care on Nurses Day 2019

Terryberry has a few gift and recognition program ideas to help you brighten up your nursing staff’s day. These simple gestures can go a long way in making your nursing staff feel recognized, appreciated, and respected for all of the hard work they put into their jobs each day.

The Recognition Mailbox

With Terryberry’s recognition mailbox, you can encourage patients to leave feedback on your nursing staff’s performance. As a nurse, there’s no feedback as meaningful or helpful as that of a patient. By utilizing a recognition mailbox in your workplace, your nursing staff will feel the power of positive patient feedback!

Terryberry’s online recognition mailbox program makes it easy for patients to leave their feedback within a few clicks. These nominations can then be shared privately or publicly, and those nurses recognized can be rewarded all through the same system!

Certificates of Appreciation for Your Hard-Working Nursing Staff

You can show each of your nursing employees your appreciation by using Terryberry’s personalized presentation kits.

Each certificate of appreciation comes in its own beautifully crafted box with a personalized message that makes your staff feel recognized as a valuable part of the team – not just a name on the schedule.
