Thank you to all of you who participated in our Name the Print contest this weekend, we received more than 50 name submissions!  Our internal panel of marketing and design team members at UA will choose the winning print name this week, so keep checking back for the gift card winner.  Once a grand prize winner is chosen, we will also be emailing all of our participants a special discount code as a “thank you” for your contributions.

Here is a close-up of a scrub print that will be featured in our Spring 2013 collection.  It features gold ribbons for Childhood Cancer Awareness.

One problem…this print needs a name!  Who better to determine the name pool than our valued customers!?

  The time frame for submissions will run from today Friday 1/6 until Sunday 1/8 at midnight EST.  The final “winning” name will be chosen by an internal panel of marketing and design team members at Uniform Advantage and will be announced next week.  The customer who submits the winning print name will be featured on our blog & Facebook and get a $25 e-gift card to UA.  EVERYONE who submits a print name, even if they are not chosen, will receive a special discount code emailed to them after the submission period has ended.

** Note: please review previous entries before you post your name in our blog “Comments”, so that we avoid duplicates**

Nurses Most Trusted Profession

Nurses have ranked at the top of Gallup’s annual poll of “Most Trusted Professions” 12 out of the last 13 times they’ve been included as an option.  The only year that they did not top the list was in 2001, when firefighters achieved the top honor after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.  USA Today and Gallup co-host the poll, where Americans vote on 21 different professions based on their “honesty and ethical standards”.

Two other medical professions, pharmacists and medical doctors rounded out the top 5:

  1. Nurses
  2. Military officers
  3. Pharmacists
  4. Grade school teachers
  5. Medical Doctors

We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of our customers out there in the nursing field!  You can read the rest of the article here:
