The Pampers Thank You Nurses Awards Program: Nominate Your Favorite Nurse
Every time I have been admitted to, or visited a family member in the hospital, there has always been at least one nurse who has stood out in my mind. Whether it was saying goodbye to my father or welcoming my niece into the world, it was the nurses who made the difference. Nurses whose thoughtfulness and selflessness deserve to be recognized. Pampers believes these nurses deserve this recognition as well, and that’s why they launched the Pampers Thank You Nurses Awards Program.
The week I stayed by my father’s bedside before he passed, it was the nurses who went out of their way to make sure that not only their patient had all he could need, but that his daughter was taken care of as well. Bringing me food or a pillow or blanket, answering my questions, ensuring that whatever I asked for my dad he immediately received. And it was the nurses who helped comfort me when he was gone.
And again, at a much happier time, it was a nurse who made all the difference. When my sister was told she had to have a c-section, she was petrified. Yet the nurse who stayed by her side, explaining what to expect, answering questions, and easing her worries and fears – made everything okay. Afterwards she continued to go out of her way making sure both my sister and my niece had everything they needed. She helped show my sister how take care of the incision, how to get her baby to breastfeed, and took those extra moments to make sure both were as comfortable as could be. It was in both the big and the little things she did that showed the true person she was.
Whether in the ICU or the Labor & Delivery, nurses do so much and truly deserve recognition for the amazing people that they are. Pampers is making that recognition possible with the Pampers Swaddlers Thank You Nurses Awards program!
The Thank You Nurses Awards program was launched in honor of, and to recognize, those nurses who do so much for parents and their newborn babies. Three categories will be honored including Labor & Delivery, Postpartum, and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Three finalists, one from each category, will be honored with a short video documentary showcasing their unique and inspirational nursing stories. Each of those three finalists will also receive a one-year membership to the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), attendance at the 2016 AWHONN Convention, Procter & Gamble care packages, and more. But that’s not all! In honor of these nurses, three Pampers Swaddlers scholarships will be made available to underrepresented groups in order to help other nurses complete their studies toward a Master of Science in Nursing degree! The three finalists will be announced in March with a grand prize winner announced in May.
