Year of the Nurse and Midwife Discounts

 In Nurses Weekly

In the United States, it is projected that there will be a need for an additional 203,700 new registered nurses each year through 2026 to meet demands.

Unfortunately, it looks like this demand will not be met, as the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) has reported a 3.7% enrollment increase in entry-level baccalaureate programs in nursing in 2018, which it says is not sufficient to meet the projected demand.

Taking on this profession is no easy task and so to honor American nurses and midwives, Newsweek researched deals for nurses and midwives throughout 2020.

Costco: Registered nurses can join the warehouse retailer as a new member and receive exclusive coupons valued at more than $60 including three free items. Nurses will need a Membership Activation Certificate to redeem. Not valid for renewal of existing membership. See the American Association of Nursing for more information.
