Some restaurants across the country are showing nurses a little love by offering freebies and discounts for National Nurses Week, which kicks off Sunday.
The week goes through May 12, which was the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.
Participation can vary. To be on the safe side, check with your closest restaurants.
Chipotle: Nurses, mark your calendars for June 5. With a work ID, get a buy-one-get-one free on burritos, bowls, salads and orders of tacos.
Culver's: There's not a nationwide promotion and offers will vary among locations and most will have a special on Sunday with a valid ID. An easy way to check if your closest Culver's is doing something is by checking the location's details page on www.culvers.com.
Jimboy’s Tacos: Nurses who show a valid employee ID get a buy-one-get-one free deal on the California-based chain’s Original Ground Beef Tacos through Saturday. Limit three free tacos per nurse at participating locations.
PDQ: Teachers and nurses get 50% off their total check Tuesday with valid ID.
