I’ve taken the time to do a round up of contests, promotions, and events for nurses this year and am serving them up to you a silver blog post platter.
Please comment below of any other events or contests that you are aware of.
Elsevier Launches Third Annual ‘Mosby’s Superheroes of Nursing’ Contest During Nurses Week 2013
“For the third consecutive year, we wanted to empower nurses to identify the true superheroes within the nursing community,” said Cindy Tryniszewski, RN, MSN, Executive Director, Clinical E-Learning, Elsevier. “True superheroes fight for their patients and their institutions every day without seeking recognition. Mosby’s Superheroes of Nursing Contest allows nursing peers to nominate the nurses who make extraordinary contributions for patients and the healthcare system.”
Scrubs “Pin It to Win It” contest!
We don’t have to tell you that nurses work hard…really hard! From rushing around so much you barely get the chance to eat to standing for 12 hours straight, you spend all of your time caring for others, which is why we think it’s time you got a little care (package!) of your own.
To celebrate and honor nurses during National Nurses Week (May 6-12), Scrubs has teamed up with Cherokee and Dickies Medical Uniforms to give away free scrubs, nursing shoes, stethoscopes and accessories just for nurses.
National Nurses Week photos wanted!
As you celebrate Nurses Week, don’t forget to bring your camera and take pictures to submit to the NursingJobs.us Nurses Week photo contest. And if you have any photos from past Nurses Week events, we would love to see those as well!
The winning contest entrants will receive a fabulous mystery prize to be determined by NursingJobs.us

Nurses of the Year Scholarships
To show our appreciation for the positive difference you make as a nurse, Walden University has established the Nurses of the Year scholarship program. This program recognizes Walden’s commitment to the field of nursing by recognizing nurses who are making a positive difference in the lives of their patients, their organizations, and the future of nursing.
Walden’s Nurses of the Year scholarship program will recognize nurses who are enrolling as new students in one of our nursing programs, the CCNE-accredited Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)Completion Program, the CCNE-accredited Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), or the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), for any start date from September through December 2013.
A total of nine scholarships, worth more than $203,000, will be awarded, including a full-tuition scholarship and two $10,000 scholarships for each of our nursing degree programs.*
What Inspires You To Be A Nurse?
Five Winners will receive their choice of either the Nursing 2014 Drug Handbook or the full-access Nursing 2014 Drug Handbook Mobile App. One Grand Prize Winner will receive an iPad mini!
Submit your story, 2-4 paragraphs of that moment, person or patient that re-enforced your passion as a nurse to our contest tab on Facebook by May 12, 2013.
