EP 371 | Ranked, Top 10 creative ways to thank a nurse!

By Michael Tetreault, Editor/Host/Author/Communicator

Did you know there are about as many nurses in the U.S. as there are people in Los Angeles?

According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, there are more than 3.8 million nurses in the U.S. and rising. Roughly three quarters are registered nurses (RNs), and the remaining quarter are licensed practical nurses (LPNs). Additionally, there are over 100,000 nurse practitioners. According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, nurses also comprise the largest segment of hospital staff, are the primary providers of hospital patient care, and deliver most of the nation’s long-term care.

Outnumbering Doctors in most hospitals, the nurses serving our communities have tough jobs. From bed pans to blood, smiles to bar code scans, they’re always there in the heat of the moment. We want to say THANK YOU and provide a few ways for those who work next to these generous individuals, with some thoughtful and practical ways you can show them your gratitude.
