It’s no secret I love cards. Nurses Week is May 6-12, and it’s one of my most favorite weeks of the year because I get to celebrate the awesomeness of the nurses around me. I usually make new cards each year, and this year is no different.
I present to you the Hashtag Nurses series. While these can certainly brighten the days of Nurses Week, they’ll fit any day of the year, as well. Simply download and print front-and-back to get 16 postcard-style cards.
It’s Cardiology Professionals Week as well as Cardiac Rehab Week. Do you work with these people? Know these people?
They’re pretty amazing, but I don’t have to tell you that! And they deserve some love and encouragement during the month of hearts.
For example, you could easily take these two images, print them front-and-back on a full sheet of paper or card stock, and write a sweet little note on the face-card side, for one sweet cardiology encouragement. And then you just might be the favorite part of the day.

Valentine’s Day is an “easy” day to thank those around you at work, no matter your role. Gratitude is contagious, and you might be surprised how great you feel after thanking those around you and watching them light up with a smile. Little moments of thanks really can change a day, a week, a unit, a culture.
If you need some Valentine’s Day work-love help, I’ve made images and cards in the past. They’ve been so well-received, I’ve made a new line of 12 free, printable Valentine’s cards available for everyone; not all of them are shown here, so be sure to visit the download link. Simply download, print (card stock is best), add a handwritten note to the blank space on the front or back of the card, and share with your coworkers. Enjoy!
And, no matter your healthcare specialty, if you have ideas for future cards, please share in the comments. Spread the love this season!
Tacos – whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, are a big deal in Texas. And so are our nurses. You likely feel the same way about the nurses around you, and what better way to say a little thanks than to bring your favorite nurse a taco or two…along with a Nursetopia card, of course?

Happy Nurses Week!
Even though May 6th, is the official start of Nurses Week, tomorrow begins the observed celebration week for most organizations. As a registered nurse myself and a nurse leader, I love Nurses Week because it gives me one more reason to love on the nurses all around me. Seriously, nurses are incredible people. Who wouldn’t want to celebrate those who make it their life’s work to care for others?!
And in true Nursetopia style, let’s kick off the week with some more free, printable cards, shall we? This series – the Elemental series – is one of my favorites because it’s been in my creative work queue for over a year, and I just finished it yesterday.
It just so happens that “CNO” is spelled out beautifully in the periodic table, and Radon thankfully holds the “Rn” symbol on the table, as well. Yep, there are a few key additional credentials hidden among the elements, so stay tuned to see the Elemental series expand.
To download the Elemental CNO card, click here. Yes, your CNO deserves some Nurses Week love, too!
To download the Elemental RN card, click here. There are two of these cards to a single sheet, so download, print, and share the Nurses Week love.
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.

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.
Or, you can download and enjoy the red 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!
You can also download the red version.
