It’s Laboratory Professionals Week, so break out the puns and celebrate these team members who remain so fluid, doing all the bloody work, making beautiful specimens of colleagues. Yeah, we love these people…even if they do have to tell us we need another sample because the first hemolyzed.

Here’s some cards for the week. Download, print front-and-back on some cardstock, and give, give, give away to those glorious team members.

‘Tis the season for hiring graduate nurses. Staying connected to GNs prior to their start dates is vital for some work markets. Even if you’re not in a tight GN market, remaining connected with GNs after you extend an offer to them through the time they actually start, which could be months, really does start the relationship well. Let’s face it, everyone wants to be thought of, and GNs are stoked to be headed into work with newly-minted degrees and forthcoming licenses. Postcards are an easy and cost-effective way to ping GNs to increase anticipation in joining an organization, and you know how much I love postcards! So, here’s one for my GN series, for use by hiring organizations.

Simply download, print front-and-back on cardstock, label, and mail. Enjoy!

Just because…here’s a cute little graphic you can print as mini cards to hand out or as a large poster to hang in a visible place on the unit.

People make all the difference!

DIY Gratitude Station FTW

by Nursetopia on February 17, 2017

I’m a stationery gal…notepads, pens, markers, sticky notes, blank notecards and postcards of all kinds…they make me happy. Words of Affirmation is my work love language…big surprise there, huh? Interestingly, the majority of my team highly values words of affirmation, as well, so one day I thought I’d share my love for all things bright and stationery with my team so everyone could easily write words of thanks and encouragement any time the thought crossed their minds.

And the “Gratitude Station” outside my office was born.

It’s an inexpensive foyer table that brings pops of colors and plenty of pens, markers, stickers, and notecards into arms-reach for any passerby. For added enjoyment, I added an essential oil diffuser, which is non-irritating and doesn’t leave any residue; whether it’s lavender or peppermint – or a mixture of the two – the light scent fills the area (and lingers into my office). I love it, and I love that my team can access the station any time for any reason as much as they’d like.

Here’s the breakdown of the Gratitude Station:

 

And here’s a closer view from the top:

 

I’m thinking of doing a mini-station at home, with stamps, return address labels, and more. What do you think?

I can’t miss a holiday made to love on people without creating and sharing some cards! I’ve added 12 more healthcare Valentine’s Day cards to the mix. Simply download, print (on cardstock is best), and paper your friends and colleagues with some holiday cheer.  There’s a bit of something for everyone – even administrators. And if you need a few more options (that love on lab and OR techs to name a few), you can always use the 2016 V-Day cards, the 2015 “we go together” cards, or maybe the 2013 “For the Love of Nursing” image.

Happy Valentine’s Day, You Amazing Healthcare Professionals. Way to love on the world each and every day!
