National Nurses Day – May 6, 2021
Nurses are more likely to sustain a back injury on a shift than construction workers, and they walk an average of 5 kilometers per shift.

TRADITIONS OF THE DAY


Always playing a big role in hospitals, the nursing staff is loved and appreciated on National Nurses Day. The most common tradition for expressing gratitude to registered nurses is throwing them a party — inclusive of all shifts. The celebration is hosted by the medical faculty and staff, with some even having fun decorations and nurse-themed cookies and cupcakes. 

Volunteers are also active today, putting themselves in a nurse’s shoes to truly appreciate their work. Nurses spend a lot of grueling hours at the hospital, so their stories and encounters are also brought into the spotlight and documented by social media bloggers and storytellers. 

The hospital staff and patients generously give gifts and donations to nurses as a token of gratitude for all their hard work. On a larger level, management and leaders within the healthcare sector present nurses with awards and certificates as a symbol of recognition

Which reminds me to bake a loaf of Kimmel bread for the Irish twins next door, both of whom are ICU nurses.
