Nurses Appreciation Week – Freebies & Deals
Nurses Appreciation Week is May 6-12! National Nurses Week 2018 in the United States of America will begin on Sunday, May 6 and ends on Saturday, May 12. But we should celebrate the good work nurses do every day!
Our thanks aren’t limited to Nurse Practitioners, RN or LPN / LVN either, this is all nurses including CNA and nursing aids / nursing assistants! My dad and my husband have spent far too much time in the hospital in the last year or so, and I know firsthand how hard nurses work and what life savers they are – literally!
