Nurses Week 2020 with Trusted Health
Nurses Week 2020 - What We’ve Got Planned
This year, given that it’s both the Year of the Nurse but also the beginning of a ruthless struggle against a novel threat, it’s especially important that we recognize, appreciate, and invest in the community of nurses. How are we doing that this year?
The DAISY Award
While we wish we could give a DAISY Award to every nurse out there, we’re honoring 10 Trusted Nurses throughout Nurses Week to show them how proud and thankful we are for all that they do. All nurses should be recognized for the amazing work they do each and every day (especially during times like this), so in order to convey the beginnings of the thanks they deserve, we’re honoring them with truest award in nursing.
And while all Trusted DAISY recipients are those nurses that are modern, driven, passionate, innovative, and conscientious, this group of recipients has the added attribute of being fearless during such an uncertain time.

The Ohio State University and Trusted Health Partner Up
The Ohio State University (OSU) College of Nursing and Trusted Health have partnered up to launch a unique initiative focused on supporting the mental health and wellbeing of nurses on the frontlines against COVID-19.
Prior to the impact of COVID-19 on our hospital systems and their nurses, the rate of burnout among nurses has been increasing steadily due to stressful working conditions and environments, work-related anxiety, and depression. The current situation surrounding COVID-19 is only making these effects even more pronounced.
As a response to these ongoing challenges, OSU and Trusted are aiming to provide nurses with mental and emotional support they need now, as they put themselves at risk for the sake of their communities. Now that we’re in May, Mental Health Awareness Month, it’s even more appropriate that we focus on some of the emotional and psychological challenges of the pandemic.

We’ve also just launched a Mental Health Resource Center, which you can find here!
While social distancing has put a pause on our in-person events, it hasn’t stopped us from crafting a week’s worth of virtual events to honor and celebrate our vast community of nurses. These virtual events are meant to inspire, connect, and give nurses a bit of a breather from the day-to-day. From meditation to lettering, comedy to coping, there’s something for every nurse — if you’re a nurse, please join us!
Nurses Week Discounts and Deals
Every year, companies and businesses across the world offer special discounts and deals for nurses. This is especially true right now given all the support that has been gathered behind the efforts of the nurses and frontline responders who’ve chosen to #stepupnotback toward COVID-19.
During the past few months, we’ve seen countless organizations come through with discounts and goodies for frontline responders. Here's a comprehensive list of what these same organizations are doing during Nurses Week 2020!
