What makes you proud to be a nurse?
We know that as a nurse you are a leader, both on and off the clock. Send in your pictures that show why you’re #proudtobeanurse, whether it’s a picture of your awesome shift team, your mentor, an award you’ve won or even an action shot from your workday. Some ideas to keep in mind for submissions are:
- Why you’re proud to be a nurse
- How you are involved in the community
- How you’ve taken on a leadership role, whether at work or at home
Our Editorial Board will be picking their 4 favorites, so send those photos in! Please include a brief caption with the picture about why it makes you #proudtobeanurse!
The 4 winners chosen will each receive a $25 AMEX gift card and their photo will be published in American Nurse Today! The submission deadline is April 15, 2014.
To enter, simply upload your photo to one of our social media pages. On twitter, you can tag us in the post @AmNurse2Day. Or you can post your picture and caption to our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/americannurse2day).
