March 19th is one of my favorite days; it’s Certified Nurses Day. I love it because I love certified nurses. It doesn’t matter what the certification is because every certification test is rigorous, requires extensive knowledge and experience to sit for and pass, and carries several ongoing standards to maintain certification such as numbers of hours worked and sometimes hundreds of continuing education credits within a certain specialty area.

Plainly put – certified nurses are healthcare rock stars.

So, why not celebrate these amazing men and women? Even acknowledgement of Certified Nurses Day to a certified nurse will be a big deal, so download, print, and giveaway these four cards to honor the certified nurses around you. Don’t forget to add your own handwritten note into the white spaces. Enjoy!

Valentine’s Day is Saturday. For many in healthcare celebrating at work, the celebration will happen all throughout this week and next – whenever people are together. I love a good card, and since I couldn’t really find valentines for my coworkers and team members that I adored, I decided to make my own. And now you get to share in the fun, too, because they’re all free. Happy Valentine’s Day…or Week…or whatever. Simply download, print, add an encouraging note on the back, and share the love to brighten someone’s day.

We go together like cisplatin and hydration. Download.

Don’t work in oncology or have an idea for another healthcare-related Valentine card that’s a little different? Leave a comment. I just might make it and publish it here for you and others to enjoy!

I previously published a free, printable card celebrating nurses who just obtained their RN licenses. I’ve added another version – in red – of that card to the original post. 

And thanks to a sweet friend who was looking for a card to celebrate two nurses who recently obtained their OCN (Oncology Certified Nurse) credentials, I’ve updated the cards to reflect that congratulations, as well. Hooray for new OCNs!

Download and enjoy the coral version.

Nursing school grads left and right are completing their NCLEX exams and gaining their Registered Nurse, R.N., credentials. Today’s free, printable card was inspired by my cousin, Shelley, who just obtained her RN license yesterday. I remember exactly what that felt like…absolutely incredible. I welcome her and the rest of my new colleagues to our amazing profession! Guard those credentials fiercely. State them proudly. Hold true to everything they represent.

This card is available to anyone and everyone, free of charge. Simply download, print (on card stock is best), write your personal sentiments on the reverse, and give, give away. Enjoy!

My day today didn’t necessarily deserve this card, but trust me, I have had pah-lenty days where this card would have been more than appropriate. I hope you never have to give it to someone, but chances are, there’s someone you work alongside that really needs a good laugh – or at least needs to know someone is thinking of her or him.
