A "Beary" Cute Idea for National Nurses Week!

By Stephanie Hartman

National Nurses Week begins May 6th and runs through May 12th. The event provides recognition and reward to the hardworking nursing staff in your community. Don’t wait a minute longer to start planning a special celebration for your nursing staff!

While May is right around the corner, you still have time to show your appreciation for your team. There are several ways to celebrate National Nurses Week. Listed below are a few suggestions from The American Nurses Association to help you promote this special week in a simple and affordable way. If you are looking for additional event ideas, visit The American Nurses Association for a complete list.

  • Host a special celebration or reception to recognize and honor the nurses in your community. Nurses can be found in hospitals, home care, schools, homeless shelters or clinics. NAS PRIDE can provide you with awards, imprinted balloons, napkins, cups, banners and a special memento for all who attend the event. The possibilities are endless!
  • Purchase promotional products for National Nurses Week. Items such as RN pins, key rings, T-shirts, mugs, buttons, etc. will provide recognition in honor of these amazing professionals during this week of dedication. If you would like additional ideas, feel free to browse our online catalog or contact your NAS PRIDE expert for gift ideas.
  • To help educate your local community, contact your local hospitals, schools or libraries to set up a display for National Nurses Week using several different types of promotional product items. The most popular items for this type of event are custom pins, T-shirts, tote bags, nurse bend pens, hand sanitizers, seed packets, etc. to help support this special occasion.
  • Get your company involved in sponsoring a health fair, conducting preventive screenings in underserved areas or organizing a walk-a-thon. NAS PRIDE can provide branded T-shirts, hats, health registers, preventive brochures, etc.

Once a year we get the opportunity to thank hard-working nurses for their dedication to helping others. Putting together a celebration for the nursing profession can be easy, affordable and rewarding. NAS PRIDE is here to help make your event go off without a hitch. Feel free to contact me or your account manager to get this process started. We would love to hear from you.

    Stephanie –
    I’m having trouble finding items that will work with my logo. It’s a horizontal logo – and it’s LONG! Do you have any suggestions for the types of items I should be looking for? My logo always appears so small because of the imprint sizes available!
