Our favorite articles for Thanksgiving

thanksgiving-tableNurses, more than almost anyone else, encounter people on the worst days of their lives. Despite this…or perhaps because of it…nurses tend to count their blessings more than other professions.

So many of our Scrubs articles are about gratitude that we selected some of our favorites for Thanksgiving.

Even if you find yourself working a Thanksgiving shift (unfortunately, hospitals just don’t close), there’s still plenty to be thankful for.

First, we asked nurses nationwide for your Thanksgiving thoughts, and you shared: What are nurses thankful for this year?

New Nurse Prisca is thankful just for having a job and for people who say “Thank You” to her!

You taught us how to find find blessings with a Gratitude Walk.

Patient Katie Sparks was grateful for the nurses who distracted and cheered her as she was undergoing heart surgery.

Student Nurse Megan is thankful for people who make a difference.

Blogger Sean thanks his colleagues, and urges us to write a letter to our troops.

Nurse Manager Rob is thankful simply for a quiet week.

May you all have a quiet Thanksgiving weekend. Turkey Day may not necessarily match the photo above (it may look more like the below!) but we hope you’ve found in these articles some reminder of why you became a nurse, and why you’re grateful for it.

    I’m thankful for this great site! Thank you for giving something like this to nurses everywhere.

  2. Wow everyone, it’s Thanksgiving Day! I’m enjoying my extra day off, and I am planning to doing something fun that will probably involve a car trip and seeing something new in North Babylon I haven’t seen yet.
