Each month we send out 500 Inspiration Kits (i.e. free gifts!) to nurses, however, in September we're handing out free gifts in person! 🥳 

Inspire A Nurse is not an all encompassing solution to what nurses are facing on the front lines of the pandemic. It is simply to meet the basic human need of belonging, and recognize the hard and essential work that nurses are doing every single day. 

Nurses are helpers and healers, and while they get joy and fulfillment from supporting others, they need help too. Our dream is that nurses everywhere will know they are not alone, and that they are supported and appreciated.

No RSVP required for meet-ups, we'll be there, just show up by yourself or with a friend!

Do I need a ticket or  to RSVP for a meet-up?

Nope! Just show up. Each meet-up location is big enough to host a large number of people and we can't wait to hang! 

I already received an Inspiration Kit in the mail, can I still come?

YES! We can't wait to see you and we have even more stuff to give away!

I can't make a meet-up can I come to a hospital I don't work at?

No. Unfortunately, we can't allow you to come to a hospital you are not employed at. Please sign up to receive an Inspiration Kit in the mail instead!

You aren't coming to my city, where will you be next?

We want to be everywhere! If your hospital would like to host us or you are interested in co-hosting a meet-up please email our team at

I want to come to a meet-up but am nervous to come alone, should I still come?

Yes! This is one of the most common questions we get asked, please come alone and we will be there with open arms ready to welcome you!

I am a nursing student, can I come? 

Yes! We welcome nursing students at all of our in person events!

I am a business that is interested in sponsorship for the tour, who do I contact? 

No, Nurses Inspire Nurses is not a 501 c3 organization at this time (one day!) so your contribution is not tax deductible. We appreciate it! Please email our team at

FAQ for Nurses

Do I have to pay anything to be involved? 

No! Inspire A Nurse is FREE for nurses. Simply fill out the application form and we'll get you in line!

I am not working on a COVID unit, can I still apply? 

Yes! We are in this together. Please still apply.

I am a nursing student or a CNA, can I still apply?

At this time, Inspire A Nurse is specifically for nurses.

I would like to coordinate something for my unit to be adopted, how do I do that? 

At this time Inspire A Nurse is for individual nurses. We want y'all to feel love, celebrated and supported!

I am outside the U.S. Can I still receive an Inspiration Kit?

Unfortunately, at this time we are limited to only shipping in the U.S.

I have not received notification that my Inspiration Kit has shipped, how long will it take?

Due to the volume of requests we cannot guarantee shipment within a certain time frame. We are currently shipping 500 Inspiration Kits each month. 

How will I know my Inspiration Kit shipped?

You will receive a confirmation email from the Nurses Inspire Nurses Shop. Please make sure to check your spam! 

Can I nominate another nurse? 

Due to the nature of having to give an email and a mailing address we ask that nurses sign themselves up, as they need to give consent for us to send them their Inspiration Kit.


Not a nurse but want to support this project? We have two ways for you to be involved!

1. Order a variety of items from our Amazon wish list to be included in the Inspiration Kits

2. Send a note of encouragement to a nurse to be included in the Inspiration Kits

Mail to: Nurses Inspire Nurses Attn: Inspire A Nurse 15087 Northville Rd. Plymouth, MI 48170

We've sent over 4,000 Inspiration Kits so far and can't wait to get to all the nurses on our waiting list.
