30+ Discounts for Nurses and Nursing Students

Nurses are some of the hardest-working members of our society. No matter the time of day, no matter the weather, nurses are always putting in long hours, helping to save lives and make our world a better place, and they are rarely given the thanks they deserve for their efforts. 

That's why a lot of businesses around the country offer discounts for nurses, so if you're a nurse looking for a little financial break next time you go shopping, give the store a ring before you head out and ask whether or not they offer a discount! You'll never know if you don't ask, and many places (especially those within close proximity of a hospital) will be happy to chop a few bucks of your purchase price.

But we understand if you don't feel up to asking every time you swipe your credit card, which is why we did the work for you. Here's a list of all the places we could find that offer a discount for nurses. Keep in mind you'll probably be asked to show your ID or another proof of employment (some stores give discounts to anyone wearing scrubs) in order to get the price cut.

While researching this list, we found that not many stores and services openly advertise a discount for nurses. Much more common are businesses that have forged partnerships with the various national nursing and medical organizations, like the American Nurses Association and NursesUSA.

So we divided this list up into a few different parts, one for general discounts available for all nurses, and one for each specific nursing/medical organization. Most of these organizations are free or inexpensive to join, and have benefits that go beyond retail discounts, so if you're not a member of any of these yet, you might want to consider joining in order to reap the benefits--both professional and personal.
