This post will show you four ways to say thank you to a nurse this Thanksgiving.
Below are four ways to say thank you to a nurse this Thanksgiving:
Food nourishes the body, helps us to relax, and can provide comfort in times of stress. You can treat your nurse colleagues to a special meal either by ordering a nice takeout or presenting them with a restaurant gift card. If you love cooking or baking, you can invite them to a special dinner, or you can bake healthy cookies which they can munch on the go or eat during a long shift.
There is no better gift than being kind to one another – especially during Thanksgiving. Let your fellow nurses know how grateful you are for working with them by writing or printing cards with words of encouragement. You can place it on their lockers or desks or hang it in the nurses’ station.
You can show appreciation to a nurse by gifting compression socks. Nurses, as you know are always on their feet all day which makes their legs tired. Compression socks help in soothing aches and preventing your feet from being swollen. A single pair can last for a long time and provide comfort during work hours.
Good coffee and a positive outlook can get you far. It's understandable that nurses would need a caffeine boost after standing for long shifts. During Thanksgiving, you can hand a nurse a gift card to a nearby coffee shop.
