Updated for Nurses Appreciation Week 2020

During Nurses Appreciation Week, nurses can get freebies and deals from restaurants, retail stores, and more. You'll be able to enjoy free cinnamon rolls, free pasta, and discounts on everything from pizza to shoes. This year, Nurses Appreciation Week begins on Wednesday, May 6 and runs until Tuesday, May 12, 2020.

Most of these deals will require you to show your medical ID, so be sure to bring one to get your freebie or discount. Some of the deals run all week long and others will only be valid for certain days or one day. Be sure to check the details on the offer website to find out when you should go.


We highly suggest calling ahead to the location you plan to visit to make sure they are participating in the Nurses Appreciation Week freebies. It's common for not all locations to participate.
