National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6 through May 12. The final day aligns with the birthday of Florence Nightingale. This week is devoted to highlighting all the ways in which registered nurses work to improve health care. This year more than ever I think it is so important to give yourself a pat on the back and celebrate nurses and all they do. To help you celebrate we put together this post highlighting the best Nurses Week 2020 Freebies. We’ve also partnered with some AMAZING sponsors to bring you an incredible giveaway!

The theme this year is The Year of the Nurse
Nurses Week 2020 Freebies and Giveaway!
This list will be updated from now until the end of Nurses Week. So be sure to stop by often to take advantage of all the freebies and giveaways. COVID-19 may make some of the updates later than normal, but I promise I am working on it daily.
Nurses Week 2020 Freebies & Discounts
Typically Nurses Week is full of all kinds of amazing Freebies and Discounts just for nurses. This year COVID-19 decided to hijack The Year of the Nurse and our week, but Nurses are still worth celebrating.
This freebie isn’t limited to Nurses Week only. To share joy among the millions in the medical community, and to show gratitude for all they are doing, beginning Monday, March 30 – National Doctors’ Day – and on every subsequent Monday through National Nurses Week (May 6-12), Krispy Kreme will provide all healthcare workers free dozens of our iconic Original Glazed® Doughnuts. Just go to a Krispy Kreme drive-thru, tell them what you need, and show your employer badge. That’s it. Pick up some free dozens on the way to work for you and your colleagues, or maybe a free dozen on your way home to family after a long shift.
This offer is available to those who care for the health of the people in their communities who provide a badge to verify their employment in the industry, including anyone who works at a hospital, as well as physicians, nurses, surgeons, psychologists, dentists, optometrists, pharmacists, and their staff. Limit up to 5 dozen per healthcare worker due to varying production capabilities by location. While Supplies Last.
Be sure to score one or all of these free nursing Kindle books.

I can’t say enough good things about the Eko digital stethoscopes. One winner is going to receive an Eko Core Digital Stethoscope for Nurses Week.
The Eko CORE Digital Stethoscope is unique in that it is the only stethoscope with both digital and analog capabilities. When connected to an analog stethoscope, the Eko CORE Attachment lends its digitizing abilities (noise cancellation and 40X amplification) and pairs to the free Eko mobile app for a wide range of possibilities that include recording, transfer, visualization of sounds. Note that no sound is recorded on the attachment itself but it just passes audio signals through to the mobile app. These recordings can be captured and stored in a patient’s medical record, which would be great if you’re working in a cardiology office. Hands down, the Eko CORE is one of the best electronic stethoscopes I have ever used. I really love the Eko CORE and am thrilled to be able to bring you an exclusive promo code to give you $20 off your purchase! Just go to Eko Health and use promo code NERDYNURSE.

BadgeBlooms features adorable Designer ID Badge Reels made for nurses by a nurse. One lucky winner will receive one badge reel of their choice.
I love that you can easily display your own personality and style with one of the badge reels from BadgeBlooms. Right now you can save 50% off every single item in the BadgeBlooms shop. No promo code needed.
Madison Supply makes trauma shears. I know, they are trauma shears… not much to get really excited about. Except these are the highest quality, most reliable shears available for less than $40. One winner will get “shears for your whole shift”, which would be a qty of five 2-packs of trauma shears. (10 pairs of shears)
They tried to hit the sweet spot where people can love them for their durability for a LONG time, but if they “walk-off” during a shift it won’t break the bank to replace them. You can save 15% off your order using the promo code nerdy at Madison Supply.

Stephanie regularly lectures and talks to hospitals across the country on the subject of essential oil therapy and would be an amazing resource to any nurse.
Soothing Scents first intervention, QueaseEASE, was created as a drug-free nausea management tool for OR patients coming off of anesthesia.
