The theme for this year was announced by the International Council of Nurses as Nurses as Nurses: A Voice to Lead. They said:
“This global COVID-19 pandemic has shown the world the important role that nurses play in keeping people healthy across the lifespan,” said Annette Kennedy, ICN President. “While there has been significant disruption to healthcare, there has also been significant innovation that has improved access to care. In 2021, we will focus on the changes to and innovations in nursing and how this will ultimately shape the future of healthcare.”

Get Notified When Our Nurses Week Giveway Goes Lives!
There are more giveaway items coming soon! Keep checking back or sign up for an email alert when the giveaway goes live.
We’ve talked about KEEN before when highlighting the top men’s nursing shoes. Not only are they stylish and comfortable but they are committed to making a huge impact on the environment.
KEEN committed to going PFC free. It took them 4 years to get these extremely toxic chemicals out of our products. And they focus on keeping them out of their products. KEEN is giving away 1 pair of shoes to two winners. If you don’t want something you can wear to work, I’d recommend the women’s Whisper or the women’s Astoria West.
In recognition of National Nurses Week, SocksLane Compression is giving one lucky winner three pairs of their top-rated Women Cotton Compression Socks of their choice. SocksLane is also giving all nurses a discount on their products from now until May 30th. Save 25% off compression socks.
SocksLane Compression Socks are designed for the nurse who prefers natural fibers to itchy synthetic materials, they are made of an exclusive cotton blend that is hypoallergenic, breathable, and durable. Each pair is carefully crafted to provide the support your legs need during long shifts, stay put all day, and be comfortable, even after many many hours.
I can’t say enough good things about the Eko digital stethoscopes. I’m a huge fan of everything they make. This year you can win one of these products:
If you ask a group of nurses to name the first brand that pops into their heads when they think of shoes, they are going to say Sanita. For roughly 20 years, Sanita manufactured all of the clog collection of Dansko- a household name in the world of clogs. However, they decided to part ways in 2007 and that led to Sanita deciding to produce these shoes in their European factories under their own brand name. The results are beautiful shoes that nurses know and love. For nurse’s week, one winner is going to win one pair of clogs of their choice from Sanita.com (in-stock items only).
BadgeBlooms features adorable Designer ID Badge Reels made for nurses by a nurse. Ten lucky winners 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. Which one fits your style?
Medthreads is a brand new scrubs subscription box. They believe that buying scrubs shouldn’t feel like a chore. So they aim to take care of it for you! By signing up, once a quarter you will get a set of scrubs designed by nurses, for nurses directly to the comfort of your home. This eliminates the hassle of trekking to the uniform store or taking a gamble on online ordering. You’ll also receive a number of responsibly curated products to take care of you!
Medthreads is giving away 5 Nurse Appreciation gift boxes, valued at $100 each. Each box will include 5-7 responsibly sourced items that are handpicked just for nurses. MedThreads believes in self-care.
The subscription boxes launch in July of this year. You can also sign up to get on the wait-list so you are notified when the subscription boxes launch.
Vita Kvita makes medical enamel lapel pins, decals, and badge reels. They create items that show your style. As Vita Kvita says, “you did not choose a boring profession, so don’t settle for boring.”
This nurse’s week, 5 winners will each receive their choice of two lapel pins from Vita Kvita. I really like the Chill Pill.
BALA Footwear was born during the pandemic. They are aiming to care for nurse’s needs without compromise. Three nurses will win one pair of their choice of shoes from BALA (excluding the limited edition color).
BALA Footwear started out by trying to see what a 12 hour shift for nurses really looked like. The sitting, standing, sprinting and – the fluids. So they met with hundreds of nurses across the United States and then listened to them. When they thought they had all the answers, they made a shoe and handed it to nurses and asked more questions. BALA Footwear was established in Portland, OR, by a team of veteran footwear industry professionals who spent decades making performance footwear for professional athletes. They brought the same obsession with performance and innovation from sport to nursing with a product specifically designed for the absurdity of a 12hr nursing shift. Plus most major footwear brands design using male foot morphology and simply shrink that down for women’s shoes. BALA is taking a Her First approach, using female foot morphology. What pair would you pick?
One winner will receive a signed copy of Anatomy of a Super Nurse from Kati Kleber, MSN, RN CCRN-K
Acclaimed blogger and author of Becoming Nursey: From Code Blues to Code Browns, How to Care for Your Patients and Yourself, Kati expands on her guide for new nurses with this revised edition, Anatomy of a Super Nurse: The Ultimate Guide to Becoming Nursey.

Having an online presence is vital to the success of any nursing business, but maintaining it can seem overwhelming. Do you really need to maintain a website, blog, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram account?
The short answer is YES! But it doesn’t have to be complicated.
The truth is that most business owners spend 80% of their marketing time on work that only delivers 20% of the results. We want to show you how to flip the paradigm and so you can spend just 20% of your time delivering 80% of the results. This course walks you through the essentials of digital marketing and shows you how to build a strong online brand with a blog as its centerpiece. You need to know the rules, the tricks, the shortcuts, and the “must-dos” to save yourself thousands of hours. You chose nursing because you wanted to make a difference. You’ll pursue blogging because you need to be relevant to make a difference.
You were born to make an impact. You just need the tools to do it.
We will be giving away even more!
