Nurses are pretty awesome. They work in stressful environments, juggle all sorts of difficult tasks, and have to deal with us when we’re under the weather and vulnerable. In fact, they’re at their best when we’re not at ours. Maybe that’s why they’re often referred to as angels on earth. If you’ve ever had a nurse tuck an extra pillow under your head or watched one skillfully care for a family member or a friend, then you totally get the obligation we all have to salute nurses.

All that personal attention and hard work merits a gift of appreciation.  Many organizations that employ nurses, such as hospitals and rehab facilities, maintain strict policies for accepting business gifts. The general rule of thumb when it comes to gifts for nurses is that individual gifts are not allowed, but a gift to the entire staff is usually acceptable.

Food gifts are the most welcome as they can be easily shared and immediately enjoyed. A large gift basket tied with a colorful bow and filled with edible treats will get a lot of attention and be a fun distraction from the stressful work of nursing.
