When is Nurses Week 2024?

As May approaches, so does one of the most important weeks of the year for the healthcare industry: Nurses Week, a time to honor and celebrate the tireless dedication of nurses around the world. National Nurses Week is celebrated May 6th through May 12th each year.

8 Insights from Local Nurses

At Strategic Factory, we understand the significance of this week, and we’re here to help hospitals and healthcare institutions show their appreciation to their hardworking nursing staff with meaningful branded gifts. To ensure what we offer truly resonates with the nurses they’re meant for, we’ve gathered insights directly from local nurses themselves. Here are some valuable nuggets of wisdom we’ve gleaned:

  1. Functional Apparel:

    Nurses appreciate apparel gifts they can wear comfortably during their shifts, such as sweatshirts, jackets, or compression socks. They value items that are not only functional for work but also stylish enough to wear at home or while on-the-go.

  2. Practical Accessories:

    Fanny packs are a hit among nurses for storing essentials like flushes and pens while they’re on duty, keeping their hands free for patient care.

  3. Portable Chargers:

    With long shifts and constant demands, nurses often find themselves on the go without much time to stop and recharge their devices. A pocket-sized portable charger ensures that they can stay connected even during the busiest of days.

  4. Edible Treats:

    Who doesn’t love a tasty treat? Edible gifts are always appreciated, whether it’s gourmet snacks to indulge in during breaks, a blend of good coffee, or smaller treats added to a larger gift. Just be sure to accommodate for dietary restrictions.

  5. Trendy Drinkware:

    Nurses have TONS of drinkware. If you go with this route, please make it something they would pick out at the store, like the trending brand, ‘Owala.’

  6. Unique Experiences:

    Sometimes the best gifts are the ones that offer a break from the daily grind. Consider something unique and new that nurses can enjoy outside of work, whether it’s a relaxing activity at home (think cozy blankets, eye masks, candles, or plant kits) or an adventurous outing (think coolers, bags, fold-chairs, or beach towels).

  7. Something Hand-Made:

    Show an extra level of personalization and effort with Thank-You cards. They make a huge impact emotionally without making a huge impact on your budget.

  8. Money!:

    Going the monetary route? Keep it personalized by getting them gift cards to their favorite spot placed inside a branded gift card holders that have your branding and a special message inside. Great option to show you pay attention to their hobbies and favorite spots. Bonus points if your special message is heartfelt and personalized.
