The Envelope please…


And the winner is… The day has finally come and we’re proud to announce the three winners in the ‘Give It a Shot! Nurses Week T-shirt Challenge!’ The contest has concluded as of last Monday but we were unable to decide on the winning designs until Wednesday due to an unforeseen illness, which was welcomed by the judges due to high number (138) of entries! This extra time gave them a better look at all the designs and they were able to choose wisely. Read all about the contest at and see the top three entries, all of which have explanations of why the design was chosen as the winner.

We’d like to thank the fellas over at for helping us make this our most successful contest ever! True, it may be our first contest we’ve hosted but without our partners in design, I don’t think it could have gone any smoother.We were so pleased with the results that this will surely not be the last time we work with – keep an open eye for other contests down the road!

As I mentioned earlier, we had 138 entries in the design challenge and it was tough to whittle it down to three with so many wonderful designs. Some humorous, some heartfelt and some… Well some. The contest really opened my eyes to what nurses think of themselves and their profession and what the general public feels about nurses. I can’t think of another profession where so many are proud to do the work they do, no matter what. Nurses truly care… And it shows. To take it a step further, the winning shirts are all available for purchase and for every shirt sold, $4 will be given to a very reputable charity – giving you a chance to show that you care too!

All in all, it was a successful celebration of nurses and we can’t wait to do it again next year! Who knows what we’ll do, but rest assured we won’t let our nurses go unnoticed. Here’s to you and all you do!

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.
