‘Why I Love Being a Nurse’ videos to highlight joys of nursing; iPad 3 to winner

Nursing is a challenging and rewarding profession. Our goal with the video contest is to give nurses an opportunity to share their passion for nursing and have a little fun in the process.

Swisslog, a leading provider of automated materials transport and medication management solutions for hospitals, today launched the “Why I Love Being a Nurse” video contest as part of National Nurses Week, which runs from May 6 through May 12.

The nurse who submits the winning video will win an iPad 3. A Kindle Fire and a $50 Amazon gift card will be awarded for the 2nd and 3rd place videos, respectively.

Swisslog is asking nurses to submit videos (three minutes or less) via YouTube by June 8. All submissions will be reviewed by Swisslog personnel and the top ten will be posted for popular vote on the Swisslog Healthcare Solutions Facebook page and the Swisslog MedRover Facebook page. The three winning videos will be posted on Swisslog’s website, YouTube Channel and Facebook pages for the duration of 2012.

Our goal with the video contest is to give nurses an opportunity to share their passion for nursing and have a little fun in the process,” she added.
