Nurses deliver 90 percent of the world’s healthcare services. Yet despite our overwhelming reliance on nurses, nurses are still subject to turbulent, often chaotic working conditions. Short-staffed units exists throughout the country in the wake of a national nursing shortage, and nurse burnout is happening on a large scale because of it.
Considering the global reliance on nursing, every day should be considered Nurses Day; every week is Nurses Week. But because today marks the official beginning of the nurses week the entire country is celebrating, we thought it would be a great time to show just how much we appreciate nurses, both our own travel nurses and the full-time nurses saving lives every day.
Here’s what to expect from THS during nurse’s week:
- Starting Monday, THS will introduce the winner of its inaugural Super Nurse Scholarship. We showed up at a local nursing school to surprise a lucky nursing student with a plus-sized $1,000 check. That video will be released on Monday
- On Tuesday, we will begin accepting nominations on a thank you nurses week video that will encompass all of our Nurses Week activities
It’s going to be a great week. And as always, thank you nurses for all that you do! And to see why nurses love working with THS, click the button below.
