It comes to me as no surprise that nurses may feel a little unappreciated at times… And last years contest, “My Worst Nurse’s Week Gift… Ever” was proof positive. With over 650 submissions, I’d say that nurses being unappreciated is an understatement, at least when it comes to this once a year celebration. You should read a few of them, I mean really, a bar of cellulite soap? Seriously!? I want to meet that person who thought it would be good idea to hand those out! There are some doozy’s… But what I’m wondering is (and I know I’m gravy training this idea, thank you Advance for Nurses) what’s the worst gift you’ve received from your staffing agency? There’s got to be some good ones, er, bad ones out there, so let’s hear it. The “best” answer will receive a little token gift… So long as you leave your email address and that I can get a hold of you to send you the prize.
By the way, this year Advance Healthcare Shop is hosting another contest to celebrate Nurse’s Week, “Most Memorable Mentor.” This is your chance to share with others your inspiration that was by your side to get you through your toughest challenges as you began your nursing career or perhaps made you choose this profession to begin with. Whatever the reasons, please share them, and just for entering you’ll receive a 20% off discount and a chance to win a $500 gift certificate to the ADVANCE Healthcare Shop AND a $500 donation to the charity of your choice in your mentor’s honor! Now that’s a Nurse’s Week gift!
