Happy Nurses Week!!!

Posted 9 months ago by Maria Walls

Happy Nurses Week! What a whirlwind the last two months have been. On behalf of St Louis Nurses in Advanced Practice I want to wish all of you a wonderful week. I know times are tough right now but one thing has shined through- I am incredibly proud of each and every one of you. Whether you are involved in the care of COVID patients or not- you are a HERO and always have been. Thank you for being who you are- selfless, trustworthy and highly respected by everyone. I'd like to forward the thank you from MONA with some fun social media activities for us to participate in.  HAPPY NURSES WEEK!


Happy Nurses Week!

Dear Margaret,

During Nurses Week and all month long, the Missouri Nurses Association would like to extend a special thanks to you, our nurses, as you continue to provide the highest level of quality care to your patients. You deserve special recognition for your efforts. 

First and foremost, we want to honor and celebrate you.  We have been asking nurses to post videos or photos of their day saying, “I am a Missouri Nurse,” to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #ShowMeMONurses.  We want to show the good and bad, the happy and sad.  Please use this prompt all month long.

Because it is Nurses Week, we have different prompts each day that we would love for you to use.

Wednesday, May 6th: #nursesday #ShowMeMONurses Today is all about YOU! Tell us about your nursing career!

Thursday, May 7th: #thankfulthursday Thank a nurse who has contributed to your career in one way or another, no matter how small! 

Friday, May 8th: #furbabyfriday OR #FamilyFriday Share pics of your families and/or fur babies and how they contribute to your well-being

Saturday, May 9th#cheerstoMOnurses Send a virtual “Cheers” to a nurse colleague you admire or work with

Sunday, May 10th: #mothersday Share pics of your family or a pic of your mother.  This would be a great one for friends and family to post pictures of their moms who are nurses!

Monday, May 11th: #NurseAdvocacy  Highlight nurses working with legislators and our nurse legislators (past and present)

Tuesday, May 12th: #shareyourWHY Tell us why you are a nurse

All nurses who participate will be entered to win a $50 gift card given away weekly. We will announce our first $50 winner this Friday!

Remember, this is a time to celebrate YOU and your many accomplishments.  We at MONA want to thank you for all of your work, this week and every week.
