A Successful National Nurses Week

This week, we’ve paid tribute to the hardworking nurses in all of our lives during National Nurses Week, which ran from May 6–12. BrightStar Senior Living of Madison is the proud employer of 2 fabulous nurses, Robyn and Sara, who play a vital role in delivering quality care, service and support to our residents and their families. These nurses are selfless professionals whose passion, commitment, and expertise shines through in all they do. We wanted to take this opportunity to thank them, and here’s how we did it.

Showing Our Gratitude during National Nurses Week

For National Nurses Week 2016, BrightStar Care and BrightStar Senior Living asked our followers to take a photo thanking a nurse in their life and post it to Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook with the hashtag #ThankANurse. The response was incredible! Hundreds of people across the country took a moment to express their gratitude to a nurse.

Some people wrote heartfelt thank-you notes and delivered flowers, while others baked treats or gave homemade nurse gifts. Some simply stopped to say, “Happy Nurses Week!” Below, we’ve highlighted a few of our favorite moments.

Going Beyond National Nurses Week

Although the second week of May is dedicated to celebrating nurses for all that they do, the appreciation doesn’t have to end there. Let’s go beyond Nurses Day. Whenever you’re feeling inspired throughout the year, be sure to thank the hardworking nurses in your life for the positive impact they have on your loved ones. On behalf of BrightStar Senior Living we salute nurses!
