Nurses, you definitely deserve appreciation.
After all, who else regularly works 12-hour shifts where duties include not being overtly grossed out by a variety of bodily fluids?
That’s why we’re pleased to share some great deals with you in honor of National Nurses Week. No number of freebies or deals could adequately show how grateful we are for your care!
National Nurses Week 2016
National Nurses Week runs from May 6 to 12. It’s a little bit odd to start it on a Friday, but nurses do work odd shifts!
When you’re finally off-call, check out the deals below. You deserve them!
Show your healthcare ID badge at your local Cinnabon location to get a free Cinnabon Classic Roll or MiniBon anytime during the week (May 6-12).
When you go with a friend to EVOS on Friday, May 6, you’ll get a free meal or salad when they purchase theirs.
