A Week of Celebrating Nurses!
Nurses have a tough and admirable job. They’re on the go all day, moving nonstop, and communicating with patients, doctors, and other healthcare professionals. The shifts can be long, and at odd hours of the day or night. Most patients have no clue what their days are like and just how hard they work!
That’s why the American Nurses Association (ANA) created National Nurses Week, a time to celebrate the hard work of nurses everywhere! This year NNW will be celebrated May 6th through the 12th, and they’ve selected the theme “Nursing: the Balance of Mind, Body, and Spirit”. The ANA designated this year as the Year of the Healthy Nurse, so we’re highlighting some products that can help keep you on your best health throughout your day, and others that help you show pride in what you do!
Take NNW as a time to treat yourself to some accessories that can help you through your day and even help you represent. Compression wear can help keep your muscles from experiencing strain and swelling from being on the move all day. Tafford has the playful Nurses Rock Compression Socks by Landau, available in gray with either hot pink or green. Maybe no one will know what the bottom of your feet say, but you will! If you’re looking for something simpler, we have a variety of compression socks from Nurse Mates. Give these Support Knee Highs a try to keep the blood moving in your legs and give them the support they need during your busy days.
Proud Nurse Accessories
At Tafford, we think nurses are awesome. They work hard and they deserve recognition. They also deserve to show pride for what they do with their uniforms and accessories. Sometimes you could be on the move from one office to the next, or to the lab before the next appointment. Keep up with your day thanks to the classy and cute Nurses Rock Watch from Nurse Mates. This watch comes in a simple black or white silicone strap and while it may look plain from a distance, the face reads “Nurses Rock”. Whenever you check the time, there’s a reminder about what you do: you rock! The face also includes three different measurement markings: standard, military, and 60-second. If you’re good in the watch department, you could proudly display a pin such as the Prestige Medical RN Pin or the LPN Pin. Whatever your role or license, shop all pins available on Tafford.

Thank you, Nurses, for all you to do keep our nation healthy!
