15 Nurse Discounts That Can Save You Money
by Sarah Stasik
Did you know your nursing license could double as a coupon at stores and service providers across the nation?
Nurse discounts at stores are popular during events like National Nurse's Week.
But you can also save on a range of services and goods throughout the rest of the year just by flashing your nurse discount at stores.
15 Nurse Discounts That Can Save You Money
Wherever you find yourself working as a nurse, consider some of these registered nurse discounts to stretch your pay even further.
1. New York & Company
Nurses can save 15 percent off clothing and accessories at New York & Company when they show their employee ID or other ID that confirms their healthcare credentials.
The nurse discount is also available to the spouses of nurses. The nurse discount is only applied to full-price items and cannot be applied to clearance or sale items.
2. Nationwide Insurance
Nationwide Insurance partners with the American Nurses Association (ANA) to give registered nurse discounts to RNs.
If you're a member of the ANA, you may qualify for an automatic nurse discount on car insurance through Nationwide.
The registered nurse discount is automatically applied when you go through the quote process via telephone or online.
Or you can mention your ANA membership to your local agent to score your nurse discount in the office.
Other car insurance companies may offer such reductions, so ask your insurance agent about registered nurse discounts.
3. American National life Insurance
Members of the American Nurses Association may also be able to get a nurse discount on life insurance through American National, another ANA partner.
Nurse discounts are just one of the factors that go into preparing a life insurance quote, as age and health status are also important.
RNs can apply online to find out about coverage options.
4. Disney Resorts
Disney offers various discounts for those employed in service industries or in military occupations.
Nurse discounts include rates starting at $242 per night at the Swan and Dolphin resort, and you may be eligible for even more nurse discounts at stores within Disney.
5. Nature's Gift
Nature's Gift, an online retailer of aromatherapy products, offers a 10 percent discount to anyone who sends in a copy of a current health care professional license.
You can save on essential oils and stock up on aromatherapy supplies for self-care sessions that help you avoid nurse burnout.
6. Sleep Number Beds
Nurses know the value of a good night's rest, and you can boost the quality of your Zs at a savings when you shop Sleep Number retailers.
The nurse discount at stores carrying such beds is reported as 35 percent off.
7. Savings on Your Cell Phone Service
Depending on your provider, you may be able to score savings on your mobile phone bill using nurse discounts. Call your provider and let them know you're a nurse and who you work for.
Some companies offer registered nurse discounts, while others may have a contract with your hospital employer to provide all employees with savings.
8. Six Flags and Other Theme Parks
Perhaps it's in honor of all you do in your position as an RN, or perhaps theme park management just sees the wisdom in having health care professionals on site.
In either case, registered nurse discounts help reduce the cost of admission to Six Flags theme parks and other attractions across the nation.
Not all parks participate, and the nurse discount is unique to each location. Call ahead to find out what your nurse discount will be if you're planning a trip or day out.
9. NursesUSA Membership
You can get a free online NursesUSA membership when you use the organization's travel booking service to rent a car or book a hotel stay or airfare.
The membership is a $35 value, but nurses with memberships receive further nurse discounts when booking travel.
10. Hobie Sunglasses
Members of NUSA can also take advantage of nurse discounts in stores and online, such as a 20 percent discount on Hobie sunglasses.
