Nurse's Week

  1. This may sound real petty in the face of other nursing concerns, but I need to get this off my chest. Do any other hospitals out there celebrate nurses week in conjunction with hospital week? I find this maddening. I put in tons of hours, take the brunt of the physicians as well as patients, get called in the middle of the night to do angiography on a drunk, etc.. and yet the entire hospital gets recognized during the week I feel nurses, YES NURSES, should be honored and appreciated. Petty, yes, unfair in my view, yes. What do you guys think?

    The hospital where I work celebrates nurses week in May... This year we got a 10$ gift certificate to a bookstore and some cute guys gave us chair massages (better than a book anyday!)

    The rest of the nursing world celebrates nurses week in May, round about Ms. F. Nightingale's birthday, which I think is the 9th.
