National nurses day in the USA 2020 is on May 6th, starting the official national nurses week 2020 that will take place from May 6-12.
In these crazy times, with the coronavirus spreading quickly and taking so many precious lives, the healthcare providers are being compared to soldiers in combat- fighting a vicious invisible enemy while risking their lives, and the lives of their loved ones- if they choose to go home between shifts.
Working crazy hours and feel helpless and overwhelmed, national nurses week 2020 is more important than ever!
How to show nurses your appreciation?
In many online forums most nurses don’t want anything special for national nurses week 2020… All they want is for people to stay at home, wear masks & gloves when they leave the house, wash their hands, and keep the social distancing orders!
You- doing all that- gives them less reason to worry, less enemies to fight, and more peace of mind!
On this special nurses appreciation week 2020- we ask you to stay home! Keep your outings to a minimum, and show your love for your friends, family, and fellow man- by staying away!
