This week we salute nurse practitioners! As licensed, expert clinicians, nurse practitioners have an increasingly vital role to play in our health system.
With a health care provider shortage at the top of the national agenda, nurse care practitioners are prepared to provide high-quality, cost-effective, comprehensive, patient-centered care to patients across the country. Already, more than 916 million visits are made to Nurse Practitioners every year.
National Nurse Practitioner Week, November 10-16, 2013, is a time to celebrate the more than 171,000 licensed nurse practitioners in the United States. NP’s provide primary, acute and specialty health care services and partner with their patients, guiding them to make educated health care decisions and healthy lifestyle choices.
Show a nurse practitioner your appreciation this week with something thoughtful from allheart’s selection of gifts and accessories. This Prestige Medical gold-plated tac pin would be a thoughtful gift for your favorite NP or for yourself!
This pretty, playful, pink-ribbon print scrub top comes from the Koi Happiness collection.
Most of us are aware of Breast Cancer. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the National Breast Cancer Foundation reminds women they should have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages, and that everyone should encourage women they know to create such a plan.
You can learn how to create an early detection plan, get more information about the disease and treatment, or learn about hosting a fundraiser to provide mammograms to women in need at the Foundation’s website.
You can help promote awareness by wearing your pink ribbon scrubs and accessories during the month of October. There are many flattering and eye-catching items included in allheart’s huge selection. Wearing them shows your support for the cause and gives you a way to open a discussion about Breast Cancer Awareness with your patients and co-workers.
See some of our favorite scrubs and accessories with a Breast Cancer Awareness theme on Pinterest.
Today is National Career Nursing Assistants’ Day, the first day of Nursing Assistants and Direct Care Workers Week. Nursing assistants dedicate their lives to providing hands-on care to the elderly and disabled. They use their wisdom and experience to insure the well-being of others. Today is a day to acknowledge the important work they do and advocate for support and training for direct care workers.
Show your appreciation to the Nursing Assistant in your life, or show pride in your profession with your choice of one of the beautiful pins celebrating nursing assistants in the allheart collection.

National Nurses Week began May 6th and ends on May 12th, the birthday of Florence Nightingale (founder of modern nursing). Celebrate your favorite nurses with a gift of appreciation for all their hard work (and long hours!). We have a Nurses Week Gift Guide with diagnostic and medical accessory suggestions to help you with your gift hunt. I’d take a look at some of the numerous pins that Prestige Medical offers, like this RN lapel pin. The gold-plated enamel will shine on any scrub top, and it’s only $9.98! Also, Whimsical Watches makes detailed watches with handcrafted miniatures as part of their designs. Check out their Unisex RN Watch here–it features a miniature nurse hat and RN symbol!
Nurses make a valuable contribution to our society every day. We greatly thank all our nurses and are glad to have their commitment to quality patient care!
