• Trust a Nurse

    I’d like to pose a question. If you had to choose one profession to rank as the No. 1 most trusted profession, which would it be?? Think about it… I can’t read your mind, but I can tell you that this question is asked to millions of people each year, and the nursing profession consistently ranks highest. Why, though? Why is it the nurse, as opposed to the doctor who is the one creating […]

  • Nutrition for Nurses

    Did you know that according to a health risk appraisal conducted by the American Nurses Association, nursing students and RNs have an average BMI of 27.6? That is in the overweight range, and that is a problem. The funny thing is that we’re talking about nurses. Nurses know what to do. In fact, nurses very often are the ones creating and implementing patients’ nutrition plans; which begs the question. What is happening here; why […]

  • Self-love is the Best Love

    Valentine’s Day came. Valentine’s Day went. Maybe you had a date. Maybe you didn’t. And while everyone was hung up on their relationships (or lack thereof), I couldn’t help but think that perhaps we’re all neglecting the one relationship that is universal to all of mankind and that needs the most nurturing. In fact, it’s the one relationship that establishes the foundation for all other relationships. I’m talking of course, about one’s relationship with […]

  • Staying Healthy in the Hospital

    The question begs to be asked; how do doctors and nurses remain healthy and well when a large portion of their waking hours is spent in a hospital setting with not so healthy people? HOW?? What exactly is the secret for not catching every cold and strain of flu? In honor of National Staying Healthy Month, I’d like to share tips and tricks from the experts. Follow along! Keep Your Hands to Yourself: Yes, […]

  • New Year, New You

    Cliché title? Maybe… Ok, fine; definitely! But that’s ok. This post is all about said cliché, as basic as that may sound. Picture this- It’s New Year’s Eve the world over, and as the clock strikes twelve in each respective time zone, champagne bottles POP as people toast to a better and brighter future. And yes, this scene repeats itself year after year. In fact, it’s quite fascinating what the opportunity to start anew […]

  • Layered Up & Ready

    You know those days when you walk outside and a blast of cold air hits you in the face? Ouch! That’s when I know that it’s time to layer up, with booties, leggings, a warm scrub jacket, and cozy underscrubs. This winter is going to have a lot of those frigid days, and who knows better about the importance of layering up in cold weather than an experienced nurse? Seriously, we nurses have got […]

  • Are You Thankful or Are You Grateful?

    Every fourth Thursday for the last 397 years, we, the good people, have been celebrating Thanksgiving by gathering with family and close friends to offer up thanks for all the positivity in our lives. Year in and year out… Year after year… This year being no different. And believe me when I say that I set out to write the requisite Thanksgiving piece about having an attitude of gratitude and all that fuzzy, feel […]

  • Staying Cozy This Season

    Today was the first time in a little while that I opened my front door, and a blast of cool air blew past me. Sweater weather! Yup; fall is upon us in full force! And when I think of autumn, what comes to my mind is hot coffee, cashmere scarves, and cozy scrub jackets. It’s great that the hospitals are kind of cold, so that the germs stay far away, but every nurse knows […]

  • Trick or…Trouble?

    I’ve confirmed it; with my weather app, that is. Fall is here to stay! And while you may be thinking pumpkin spice lattes, cozy Uggs, and cute sweaters, I’m thinking… BOO!! That’s right; I’ve got Halloween on my mind! Now you do too:) Halloween is great fun for the kiddies, but who are we fooling?? Kids + pounds of sugar disguised as innocent treats + costumes + a twilight adventure on the streets = […]

  • Go Gold for Childhood Cancer

    Meet Oscar. Your average, energetic 4 year old, Oscar loves the great outdoors, running, climbing, swimming, and his big sister Isla. A sudden onset of stomach pain and vomiting which cleared up rather quickly, was then followed by another bout of pain and vomiting. This time, his Dad discovered a large lump in his stomach. What was initially diagnosed as appendicitis, turned out to be Burkitt’s Lymphoma stage 3B, when a mass from his […]

  • Feet Talk

    The age old adage goes, ‘Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes.’ If you plan on judging a nurse, though, make that 4 miles. Don’t believe me? Well then hash it out with MEDSURGE Nursing! A study involving 146 nurses, concluded that in a 12-hour shift nurses clock in an average of 4-5 miles. *Currently picking jaw up off of floor* And let’s just say that regular folk walk an […]

  • Summer Staycation

    Everyone needs a vacation. Period. You go too long without one… you crash and burn. Or to be more accurate, you end up sprawled on your couch in days old pj’s crying a river over a tub of Ben and Jerry’s. True story. Bottom line is, life is full of stressors. And if we don’t take time to decompress, we suffer, and the people around us suffer. Let’s take you for instance, the happy-go-lucky […]

  • Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    I’ve got a bone to pick with all you nurses… Don’t get flustered just yet, though; hear me out. So there’s this notion among y’all that when it comes to your personal health, you’re invincible. I know, I know; it’s not because you literally think you’ve got something the rest of mankind doesn’t. I know how it is- life is busy, particularly YOUR life as a nurse, and since most of the time your […]

  • Summer Sun Safety

    There’s an expression we tend to use when referring to summer activities- “fun in the sun.” But here’s the thing, this ‘expression’ which appears to be quite accurate, may in fact be the greatest oxymoron. You see, July is National UV Safety Month, and not without good reason. The sun is the strongest at this time of year, and just a few minutes of exposure is enough to do permanent damage. So while you’re […]

  • Stressed Out Much??

    As of this moment, Thoughtful Thursday is a thing, and I’ve got a thinking question for y’all! What does your ‘Nurse Utopia’ look like?? I know what’s running through your mind; ‘nurse’ and ‘utopia’ do NOT belong in the same sentence. But, hey, I asked you to think so hit me with your best! Does it involve adequate sleep? A healthy BMI? A perfect work/home balance? How about a constantly advancing career? Or proper […]

  • RESOLUTIONS REVISED

    Well, folks, now that Santa’s returned to the frosty North Pole, it’s time to get a move on those New Year’s Resolutions. No-no-no, that wasn’t code for roll your eyes and sigh. Sure, New Year’s Resolutions have a pretty high failure rate. In fact, January tends to go something like this: First week of January- gym memberships swell and diet books fly off the shelves. Second week of January- Ben and Jerry’s does really […]

  • How To: Stay Fit at Work

    Say you work long hours or just don’t have enough time to dedicate to exercising, whether as a medical professional,  a nurse or a doctor. You are often on call for very long shifts. If you’re not super careful, a busy work schedule makes for a very unhealthy and unfit lifestyle. Guess what?
