On 6th May every year begins the national nurse’s week long celebrations that last till May 12th. These are days which have been set aside to honor all the people whose main job is to take care of others in hospitals, nursing homes and other places. In the United States of America, gifts are given to nurses to recognize and celebrate the great service they offer to the millions of citizens all over.
In most cases, they are usually given items or things that are more unique and special than what is normally presented to other professionals in scrubs. Because of the scrubs obsession, there is nothing of significance that distinguishes a student from a registered nurse and volunteer. You would also want to give a male something different from a female. What men like as gifts is not what would make women happy. Therefore, try to seek their opinion on present ideas for them.
Persons who work in this profession are few. Thus, many hospitals and clinics are making the most of their program and setting aside time for them to have a great treatment is a spa or massage gifts. During this holiday, almost all the infirmaries and health centers usually hunt for good students at nursing schools.
Some of the other common gifts given during the national nurse’s week are mugs, pens which have been branded with hospitals logo and contacts to the human resource person accompanied with an invitation for a job application or interview. A health center with tight budget normally teams up with others to get bulk orders; and in so doing, they receive great discounts. Most of the gift companies will accommodate numerous shipping addresses at a small price.
The role played by this important workforce in the society is great; therefore, recognizing them goes along way in showing your appreciation. Some the reasons why they should be respected is that they work long hours and, in normal circumstances they are given the responsibility of taking care of persons who cannot take care of themselves. Chartings and tests done in labs are normally counter checked by nurses to ensure the doctor miss nothing; thus, they make sure everything is ok.
Doctor’s sometimes are unable to control the patients and advice from the nurse is normally not taken into consideration; this therefore becomes difficult for them. Thus, nurses should have great skills in conflict management.
Appreciating the work done by nurses during the national nurses week goes a long way in motivating them to work better. Therefore, if you have any person you know that is a nurse in your family of a friend, get them gifts that will show your respect for what they do.
