To celebrate National Nurses Week, CheapCaribbean is asking you to nominate a nurse for a free vacation.

Nurses across the country have been working tirelessly throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to care for patients fighting this daunting disease. Now, CheapCaribbean wants to give back to 50 nurses to show their appreciation and gratitude for all their work during this difficult time. To celebrate National Nurses Week, which runs from May 6 to 12, CheapCaribbean is launching a “Beach Shift” giveaway, offering a free vacation to one nurse from every state in the U.S.
