Announcing the WINNER of the Spa Day for the Holidays Contest!

A few months ago, we asked NursingLink users:

Why do YOU deserve a day at the spa?

After reading every one of the thoughtful, touching, and inspiring messages, we’ve finally come to a decision. It wasn’t easy; there were so many great entries to choose from!

Nurses have it tough, and while we would love to give everyone a day at the spa, there can only be one winner! So how did we decide? We chose the winning entry based on:

I) Originality
II) Demonstration of dedication to the field of nursing
III) Sincerity

The winner of NursingLink’s Spa Day for the Holidays Contest, along with 10 runners up, had some funny, moving, and memorable stories to share. Check ’em out!

    Congratulations to mcdanielrn on what sounds like a much needed spa day. As nurses, we all deserve a spa day, but since I doubt if NursingLink can afford to do this for every nurse then WE need to take care of our own.
    I am an ER nurse in a VERY busy hospital. One day this past summer it was crazy busy and the entire staff was just over it. I asked the charge nurse to cover my patients for 15 minutes(cause noone was getting a break). I jumped in my car, drove to the grocery around the corner and came back with 6 1/2 gallons of ice cream. EVERYTHING is much better when you have ice cream!! It isn't that I am rich or even all that generous. But, I care about my co-workers and saw that we all needed a boost that day. Remember if you take care of others and give them a spa day or just a bowl of ice cream then you are also taking care of yourself. Your friends and co-workers will remember your kindness and reach out to you when you need a spa day or maybe just a hug and a smile!!!
