Honoring Palm Beach County Nurses

Thank a Nurse is an annual campaign that honors Palm Beach County nurses. Palm Healthcare Foundation, Inc. recognizes the impact that skilled nursing care has on the overall health of our community’s residents and therefore invests in uplifting and advancing the nursing profession. One way we do that is with this campaign, held in conjunction with National Nurses Week (May 6 - 12), which provides nurses and community members alike the opportunity to express how important and cherished our local nurses are. Explore this page to find out how you can get involved!

Get Involved in the campaign!

Palm Healthcare Foundation partners with CBS12, Sunny 107.9, WIRK 103.1 and The Palm Beach Post to share the stories of outstanding nurses in our community and give patients and the public a way to "Thank a Nurse" who has touched their lives. 

Write in 

Share a story about your nurse hero! Visit ThankaNurseToday.com and write about your nurse and the impact he/she has made on your life. The most touching nurse stories will win a prize - for both the writer and the nurse! 

Submissions are open from April 6 - April 24

The winners will be announced at our annual Heart of Gold Reception.


Tune in 

Starting in April, CBS12, Sunny 107.9 and WIRK 103.1 will be featuring stories about the outstanding nurses in Palm Beach County!



If you are a healthcare organization that employs nurses, now is the perfect time to recognize them for all that they do. Implement an awards program that honors your nurses - here are some tips to help you get started.



Follow Palm Healthcare Foundation, Inc. on Facebook and Twitter; we'll be sharing our local nurses' incredible stories.
