10 Ways to Say Thank You to Nurses During Nurses Week

Some of life’s biggest moments are spent with a nurse—from when we are born to when we pass away as well as the many ups and downs in between. Nurses Day and Nurses Week provide the perfect opportunities to celebrate the nurses who care for us, our friends and our families. They have an important job to do, and it is our duty to thank them every year.

Here at Hallmark Business Connections, we create custom greeting cards, including an excellent collection of specific Nurses Week greeting cards that will help hospital systems, medical offices and other organizations celebrate nursing staff on this important holiday.

75% of card recipients report feeling more connected to an organization that sends Hallmark cards, according to client-reported results.

We also happen to be experts in what to write in Nurses Week cards. For a quick list of some thought starters, keep reading.

A Brief History Lesson: Nurses Week

First, a quick history lesson. In 1982, a congressional resolution designated May 6 as National Recognition Day for Nurses. A few years later, in 1990, the American Nurse Association expanded the recognition to create National Nurses Week, which takes place May 6–12.

Nurses as Employees

Although the holiday is over 35 years old, we still have a hard time putting into words just how much nurses mean to us. And for those who work in the health industry, nurses aren’t just people we run into every so often; they’re the people we work with every single day.

Nurses are 2X as likely to feel special when receiving a greeting card compared to a social media post, according to Hallmark Cards, Inc.

Nurses Cards: What to Write in Them

Three cards feature sentiments about nurses, including one that one that says, “A Nurse is Basically a Superhero in Scrubs.”

In honor of Nurses Week, show gratitude to those who take time to make sure we, and the people we love, are comfortable. They spend countless hours caring for us. Now, it’s your turn to show you care for them with one of these simple messages inside your nurses cards:

1.  “Your passion for our patients’ health is appreciated every day. Thank you for all you do.”

2.  “Your compassion, optimism and kindness do not go unnoticed. We appreciate you!”

3.  “Because of you, we live in a happier, healthier world. Happy Nurses Week.”

4.  “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

5.  “Just a moment to recognize you and your hard work. Happy Nurses Week!”

6.  “You go above and beyond to make our patients comfortable. Thank you.”

7.  “You are a valued member of our team. Thank you for being the amazing nurse you are!”

8.  “You brighten peoples’ days—including ours. Happy Nurses Week!”

9.  “Our patients love you and the hard work you do does not go unnoticed. Thank you for everything. Happy Nurses Week!”

10.  “Thank you for being an amazing nurse. Our team appreciates all that you do. Happy Nurses Week!”

Doing More for Nurses

“Just as we must acknowledge that patients suffer, we must acknowledge that the work caregivers do is complex, important and both physically and emotionally challenging. Simply acknowledging efforts and praising good outcomes in a genuine and unscripted way is meaningful.” – American Nurses Association

  1. It is clear that the author is a data geek. I like how he writes and organizes facts.

    It is always such a joy to read articles made by real professionals,
    like https://sandboxworld.net/leadership-essay/. I am fed up with that no-name, ghostwritten articles.
    That’s why it was so pleasant to have a look at a
    compelling piece. I see the writer has floor knowledge in the
    topic in addition to some practical experience.
    This sort of information is always more valuable than copypasted
    blog articles ideas.

  2. Thank you to all nurses in world. As someone that works at a nursing home. I appreciate what you are doing and the troubles you are going through right now. May the Lord watch over you and bless you.

    1. Thank you Donald. I also worked in a nursing home, and retired in 2008, when I was 65 and since then I’ve been doing casual shifts. Even at my age, I can still put in a good day’s work, and am happy to be helping out, during this Covid crisis. Bless you too, for what you are doing. These people need us.
