Thank You Notes for Nurses: Quotes and Messages to say Thanks

Thank You Notes for Nurses: If you’ve been at the receiving end of a nurse’s healing tough, make sure you give it back with a sweet message to say thank you. Maybe even buy a cute gift that goes with your Thank You card. Why? Because nobody realizes the superhuman strength, compassion and care it takes to be a good nurse. Erratic work timings, watching suffering day in and out, dealing with patients and the never-ending list of tasks…. being a nurse is anything but easy.
