With restaurants and stores already showing their appreciation towards nurses and health care workers as the front liners of the coronavirus pandemic, locations across the country are showing some extra love for National Nurses Week from May 6 to 12.

The celebration comes at the heels of members of the National Nurses United, the largest union of registered nurses in the U.S., protesting in front of the White House on April 21 to call attention to the thousands of health care workers nationwide who have become infected with COVID-19 due to lack of personal protective equipment.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, thousands of health care workers across the U.S. have contracted COVID-19.

The week conmmemorates Florence Nightingale's birthday, the founder of modern nursing.

To show appreciation to first responders, restaurant and other store offers range from free meals to free shoes. Many of the deals were already in effect before National Nurses Week, and require a valid form of ID
