From May 6-12, 2015, we will celebrate National Nurses Week and honor the excellent quality care nurses deliver to patients every day.
Nurses have once again been voted as the most honest and ethical professionals by the Gallup Poll. This event provides nurses the opportunity to pat themselves on the back and take a bow for all the great work and care provided on a daily basis 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.
According to the American Nurses Association, “the 2015 National Nurses Week theme “Ethical Practice. Quality Care.” recognizes the importance of ethics in nursing and acknowledges the strong commitment, compassion and care nurses display in their practice and profession.”The ANA offers a toolkit and many suggestions for celebrating Nurses Week, including information on the history of Nurses Week.
I would like to suggest a great gift anytime for nurses would be Gift of Light a solar LED light box that can be attached in multiple ways to bike helmets, bicycles, backpacks, dog leashes, baby strollers and also worn as an arm band. The light box features 3 modes; steady, slow blinking an fast blinking and is available in red or white LED colors.
