How to Thank a Nurse:

Nurses are the backbone of the healthcare industry and work extremely long hours for days on end to ensure patients young and old receive the care that they need. It is important to remember that a patient spends far more time with their nurse than their physician, and a small token of appreciation can go a long way.

There are many ways to show gratitude toward nurses, starting with a simple but meaningful two words: Thank you!

Here are more creative ways to show a nurse how much you appreciate what they do to care for you:

  1. Handwritten note or a card: Cards are most personal, easiest, and best gifts for nurses. In the era of emails and text messages, a handwritten thank you note is a lost art. If you take the time out to write down your thoughts and express your appreciation in words on paper, you will be amazed at the impact. Nurses that receive thank you cards from their patients often hold on to them for months if not years and read them again for a positive boost of energy when times are emotionally tough.
  2. Healthy snacks: Chocolates and cookies are always great thank you gifts, yet nurses and often need to take care of their own health as well as others. A hospital break room and vending machine isn’t always the best place to find a quick and healthy snack. Consider a box or basket of healthy snacks such as protein bars, nuts, and fruits. These edible arrangements are tasty, healthy, and a great way to help nurses sustain their energy levels during a busy shift.
  3. Caffeine:A typical shift for a nurse will last at least 12 hours, if not longer, and a dose of caffeine is often needed to keep them going. Consider giving a nurse a gift card for their favorite coffee place, a coffee mug filled with a bag of coffee, or even have a freshly brewed cup of coffee delivered.
  4. Crocks or compression socks: Some nice compression socks make a great gift to thank a nurse. We’re on our feet all day, which tires on the legs and feet. A good pair of compression socks can make such a difference in soothing aches and preventing swelling. It’s a gift that truly keeps on giving and one pair can last a long time, providing many comfortable shifts.

Make sure you take the time out during National Nurses Week and every other day of the year to thank a nurse!
