A chance to say thank you
Your Nurses' Day event can take place anywhere - from the canteen to the car park, but make sure it's somewhere that is safe, visible and accessible to all.
Don't forget - you will need permission to hold your event, so make enquiries as soon as possible.
Spread the workload by asking for support from colleagues, friends and family. Simple things like asking others to put up posters, bake cakes or buy milk will help you run the best event you can.
Advertise your event. Contact the local media, put up posters (with permission) and remember to tell people about it when you're at work. Social media is a great way to spread the word.
Contact your regional RCN office for advice on publicising your event.
Don’t run short. You can always take leftovers home or share them around later in the day. Make sure your food and drink is fresh and caters for all allergies too.
