We Need Your Vote!


Hopefully by now you’ve heard about and better yet, entered the ‘Give It a Shot! Nurses Week T-shirt Challenge’ that Medical Solutions and are co-hosting in celebration of Nurses Week 2010. The month long contest started on April 12th and will conclude at the end of Nurses Week, May 12th and as of today there are over 90 entries, filling 4 pages of various nursing inspired brilliance. All the various designs really have given me great insight to what people think about the nursing profession and what nurses think about themselves. There are some truly wonderful designs. Some more heartfelt, while the others are just plain witty! Good stuff!

Vote for your favorite Nurses Week T-shirt Challenge shirts at

You decide who wins - Vote for up to three designs.

If you don’t think you have the talent to enter your own design, you can still participate and vote. Once you’ve registered for the contest, you are allotted three votes to use for the shirts you deem the best.

The contest winners will receive some great prizes and more importantly, the winning design will be made available for purchase with half the profits of each sale going to a well-known and respectable charity. (Think of a parade of coins.) With so many wonderful designs out there, that nurses anywhere would be proud to wear, so it’s going to be tough to choose when you’re voting, but don’t forget that there are 4 pages of shirts to look at, so don’t just vote for the first ones you see, take a second and look around.

Pretty simple and so are the design tools at

There’s nothing to be intimidated about if you want to enter the contest. The design tool at the site allows you to choose any number of  the 1000’s of graphics available, as well as fonts and filters. It really is an amazing technology and it’s really easy to use! Give it a shot!

So, please if you could take a moment to vote, vote, vote on a few shirts, it would really help out the entrants. Again, there are so many great entries, I know it will be hard to choose… But like any contest, there has to be some winners and the only way that can be decided is by you, the voter. Remember, you get 3 votes, use them wisely!!!

About the Author:

Patrick Fuerstenau here. Born in Kentucky, raised in Germany, landed in Nebraska and still here. I've been involved with Marketing and Advertising for over a decade. It all began with an internship at an ad agency in Omaha, followed by a 9 year stint as a graphic artist at the lone major newspaper in Omaha. A friend of mine told me about an opening at her company and said that it was the best gig she's ever had... So I decided to spread my proverbial wings and see what I could do for them and vice versa. So here I am at Medical Solutions as a Marketing Specialist for a great travel nursing company. This by far has been a major blessing in my life. I love the work I get to do just as much as I love the people who make up this fabulous company. I can see myself here for a long time... As long as they'll have me. Now that we've got the career timeline out of the way... Let me tell you a little about who I am. I am oh so passionate about the game of futbol! I've been playing soccer since the age of 8 and am still playing today. If I couldn't at least kick the ball around, I don't know what I would do with myself. I fear getting old. I also have a strong love for the arts... Music, Visual arts, Film, Design... pretty much anything and everything arty. I'm happy go lucky and am always looking to have a good time. Just ask my manager! And I love writing about travel nursing.
