Thank you to Pfizer Consumer Healthcare for sponsoring today’s post on ways to honor a school nurse. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Nurses are heroes that don’t get much credit for all the wonderful things they do. Nurses are usually the first line of defense to any sick child, and when things get tough, a nurse’s job is to get tougher. Do you have a school nurse that goes above and beyond? Here are 4 ways to honor a school nurse, today!
4 Ways to Honor a School Nurse Today
1. Send a Thank You Note – Nurses see hundreds of children a day as the school day progresses. Many of them deal with grouchy kids and irritable parents with no thanks for taking care of sick children all day. A simple thank you note could not only brighten their day but give a nurse the encouragement to keep going.
2. Nominate them for the America’s Greatest School Nurse Award – Does your school nurse go above and beyond both educating and comforting sick children? If so, Pfizer wants to hear about it! 1 nurse from each state including Washington D.C. will win a prize of $500 and will be entered to win the grand which is: The title of America’s Greatest School Nurse and a trip for a getaway from school sickness! Here’s how you do it:
- Visit AmericasGreatestSchoolNurse.com and fill out the form to nominate your school nurse for the prize. Nominations are accepted from January 9, 2017, to February 23, 2017.
- Make sure to get others to vote. Voting will be open from April 3, 2017, to April 16, 2017.
3. Send a Fruit Basket – Even though a school nurse does their best to help sick children, nurses are susceptible to getting sick themselves. An apple a day is said to keep the doctor away, so send your school nurse a fruit basket filled with apples, oranges, and any fruit they may like to help keep their immune system up during these sick times.
4. Keep Kids Home When They are Sick – No matter how great a school nurse is, kids get sick no matter how much you try to prevent it. The best way you can honor your school nurse is to keep truly sick kids home for the day. With Pfizer products, your kids will be feeling their best in no time.
