NATIONAL NURSES WEEK 2021!
Nurses week officially starts May 6th – 12th! As a Registered Nurse of 14 years, I always look forward to this week. Here at Team Phun, we want to bring Nurses Week to the forefront!
We all know the past year has been incredibly difficult for nurses across the country. We went to work when everything shut down. The roads were empty, (I got to work super fast those mornings!) no one knew what was going on, (Nurses being told to wear bandanas?!) and stress levels were at an all-time high! (Insomnia alert!) Can you guess what the nurses at my hospital received for nurses week last year? Unfortunately just an email. 2020 was a rough one, to say the least.
Over the years I’ve gotten some pretty sweet branded merch, from the places I’ve worked at, and I’ve loved every little one. The branded car kit with jumper cables in it (used them). The beach mat with an attached pillow (yep used that too!) Keychains, flashlights, tote bags, etc!
Refillable Hand Sanitizer Pen with Stylus
A super simple gift with your company/brand displayed proudly. As nurses we are always lending a pen, taking report, or signing consent forms (either in ink or with a stylus on an electronic platform). Easy to clean and disinfect. (Multiple colors available and can be refilled with any hand sanitizer)
Shopping Cooler Tote
I always love getting these bags! They are super convenient when making the trek to Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods and for keeping drinks cold when hitting the beach! Let your nurses proudly show off your company/hospital all year long. (Insulated cooler that can hold up to 30 cans of whatever you want! Multiple colors available)
Round Hot or Cold Packs
Working the pandemic has been hard and grueling, especially on nurses’ bodies. Even stress can manifest as neck pain, back pain, and headaches. These little hot/cold packs are super convenient for taking a breather. Show your nurses your hospital is thinking of them as they decompress. (Multiple colors available, Microwave, Freezer, and Refrigerator safe)
I have also received several of these, and thank goodness I kept them! Super helpful at easing away lower back discomfort and neck tension. Even an amazing product for your Labor and Delivery patients! Another great product to brand and gift your nurses.
Roll-Up Beach Mat with Pillow
Another great product that gets a lot of use! It even has an inflatable pillow attached! Take this to the beach, the park, or camping! Bring that branded cooler and you’re all set! Gift your nurses a branded beach mat to rest their heads and weary legs. (Multiple colors available).
These are just a few of the many things that personally as a nurse I would love to receive. Besides an increase in pay, but I digress! Please show your nurses some compassion during these difficult times, and send them a little gift. I have always felt appreciated by the hospitals I have chosen to work with when they show up with branded gifts. Happy Nurses Week!
