Our Favorite Ways to Celebrate Nurses Week

Nurses are continually rated as the most respectable, noble and honest professionals. At Travel Nurse Across America, we are always excited to celebrate the essential roles each nurse plays in the healthcare community during National Nurses Week. This year, we are sending our travelers Groupon gift certificates and hosting a VISA gift card contest on our Facebook and Instagram pages. We love hearing your stories and encourage you to participate!

We always strive to recognize our travel nurses with small tokens of appreciation, however, there are dozens of ways to celebrate National Nurses Week nationwide. Here are our top recommendations!

Who doesn’t love being appreciated with free culinary delights? Our favorite food deals include:

  • Chipotle‘s yearly buy-one-get-one-free deal for burritos, bowls, salads or tacos. This nurse-exclusive deal doesn’t actually occur until June 5th, so mark your calendars! Just bring your work ID to qualify.
