Degreestory.com is currently hosting a fantastic contest just for nurses!

They are asking nurses to submit a story that answers the following question:

What is it really like to be a nurse?

There are so many people who get into nursing without having any idea what it is really like. And while we all know that you have to live it to even being to know if you will love it, wouldn’t it be nice to share your knowledge with a new generation of nurses? Oh, and as a huge bonus, you could win a ton of money to spend on Amazon.com.

Prizes
  • 1st – $1,000 Amazon gift card
  • 2nd – $500 Amazon Gift Card
  • 3rd – $200 Amazon Gift Card

This is an awesome opportunity for nurses to potentially win a great prize right in time for the holidays!

It’s really easy to enter. Go to the degreestory.com nursing contest page and press “enter contest.” Then, just start typing your story that describes your experience as a nurse. It can be as long or as short as you wish.

The contest concludes on December 4th.

I know you all have your fun, sad, crazy and interesting nursing stories. Take 15 minutes to share them. Who knows, it might be worth your time!

Nursing is definitely not what I thought it would be.

A great contest indeed. I do love me some Amazon. I think I'm on it daily.

@TheUnextreme me neither. Though looking back, I'm not exactly sure what I thought it would be to begin with.

@innovativenurse My husband is currently addicted to lightening deals. Yesterday he was all like "There's a book that shows you how to make things out of duct tape for $10 on a lightening deal!" I'm all like "Do you have a desire to make things out of duct tape?" To which he replies, "No, but it's 50% off!"

@elizabeth scala I think that nurses have very unique stories that can help other nurses and patients. Worth sharing for sure! And who can't think of some cool things to get with $1000 on Amazon?

 I know what you mean. Those lightening deals get me every time. I'm having a hard time staying away from the Amazon Black Friday lightening deals. Last year I bought about 20 Skylander characters for the boys' Xbox and I didn't know if I was buying duplicates because it went so fast, but they were 4 bucks each (normally 10-15). 

Fortunately there were no duplicates, but at 4 bucks I was willing to take the chance.
