Nurses have a lot of expenses for items they need to do their basic job; Uniforms, including scrubs, equipment, licensing fees, like state registrations, continuing education costs; the list is endless! And while all of these items can be claimed for tax deductions( read more about that here), when it comes to shopping for everyday items or just about anything, a little discount can go a long way.
Thankfully, there are hundreds of brands out there who are as committed to giving back to healthcare workers as we are here at Gales®. That’s right, as a healthcare worker, you can avail of year-round discounts from top brands if you work in the medical field!
In honor of nurses week this month, we wanted to do a quick roundup of some awesome brands that offer discounts to healthcare workers.
Above all else, we want to be a brand that goes above and beyond to support healthcare workers. When creating Gales®, having the most accessible price point possible was extremely important to us, but we also want to extend a discount to our new customers as a way of expressing just how much we appreciate all that you do!
