Although Nurse Week is always a special time for friends, families and patients to express their gratitude to the nurses, in their lives, the week has extra meaning this year. 2020 was dubbed the “Year of the nurse” and Nurse Week 2020 runs from May 6th through May 12th this year. Not only that, but the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic helped people across the U.S. realize the integral role nurses play in keeping our society functioning and healthy. As a result, companies went all-out expressing their appreciation for nurses.
To make things easy for nurses, we compiled a list of the companies giving nurses free stuff during Nurse Week 2020.
Freebies for Nurses during Nurse Week 2020
Incredible Health Offering Free Nursing CEUs
At Incredible Health, we believe nurses should never have to pay for CEUs. Whether you’re a NP, RN or LPN, you can choose from hundreds of premium ANCC certified continuing education units for nurses. This is compatible with requirements in all 50 states and allows you to complete all your CEUs online from the comfort of your own home.
Amazon Sharing Free Kindle Nursing Books
Do you need a refresher on interpreting an EKG? Are you looking for help studying for the NCLEX? Would you like a refresher on the impact of the Spanish Flu? We have good news. Kindle owners can download hundreds of free books about nursing on Amazon.
Starbucks Serving Free Drinks for Nurses
Sometimes all you need to power through that 12-hours shift is a Starbucks coffee. Before your next shift, stop by Starbucks to pick up a free hot or iced tall coffee. Starbucks started this initiative as a result of the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United states. Fortunately, they have decided to continue this program through the end of May.
H&R Block Offering Free Tax Filing
The only thing worse than filing your taxes is paying to file your taxes. Many of us took advantage of the IRS’s extended deadline to file your taxes. If you fall in that group of procrastinators, H&R Block offers you free filing this year.
Crocs Giving Nurses Free Shoes
If you are in demand for a pair of comfy slip-on shoes, Crocs has your back. Like Starbucks, Crocs started their program due to COVID-19 and are extending their program. Because of high demand, Crocs set a daily limit of 10,000 free shoes each day. They set up a virtual queue each day at noon ET at this link. So if you have a couple minutes during lunch tomorrow, stop by their site and request your free pair today!
Chipotle Serving Free Burritos
Chipotle took an interesting approach to encourage their customers to support Nurses. Every customer who puts “4HEROES” on their order qualifies to donate another burrito to a nurse for free. So be sure to share this with your friends and family so they can indirectly support you and your coworkers while also enjoying their own burrito or bowl.
