Say It With Care: 8 Ways to Say 'Thank You' to Your Nurses

May 4, 2016 Abby

My sister is a nurse – and boy oh boy do I admire her.  She’s sharp as a tack and caring as all get-out.  Phone conversations with her after she’s pulled a 12-hour shift leave me in awe of her courage and perseverance.   Many of us, I’m sure, would agree that it takes a very special person to be a nurse.  That’s why we should all take the time next week to send a little extra love to those who keep us calm and healthy during National Nurses Week


There are tons of ways to show your appreciation with gifts and perks, but sometimes a simple handwritten note is just as meaningful!  Not a wordsmith?  No worries! We’ve got a few smart sayings you can borrow! Just grab a greeting card, jot down one of these phrases of thankfulness along with a personal message, and you’ll be good to go.

1) Keep calm and rock on. Thanks for all your hard work!

2) Thanks for having patience with your patients.  You’re amazing!

3) Bottom line, you rock. Thanks for bringing your positive mojo to every shift.

4) Thanks for making our team supreme!

5)  You don’t do average. You do awesome.

6)  Thanks for serving up excellence daily.
