• Zendaya Makes History

    It’s the year of the ‘unprecedented.’ (I had to say that.) But as they say in showbiz, the show must go on!! And it did! The Emmy’s that is. To make a never-ending story short, the coronavirus basically forced the Emmy Awards to stage an almost entirely virtual event. Strange? Sure. But what isn’t strange about 2020? Jimmy Kimmel hosted for the camera crews and a handful of cardboard cutouts of the nominees, and […]

  • Back to School and What it Means for School Nurses

    Here’s an unsettling statistic. 25% of schools across the United States do NOT have a school nurse. While that may have proved fine and dandy up until now; with the coronavirus still raging across the country, and many schools slated to reopen shortly, that’s going to be rather problematic. It’s the school nurse to whom students and faculty are going to turn to with questions and concerns. A school minus a nurse during this […]

  • Health and Wellness

    August is National Wellness Month. And surprise, surprise; this month focuses on self-care, stress management, and creating healthy routines. In other words, it draws attention to every single thing nurses are terrible at. Yikes! To be fair, nurses are overworked, underpaid, and forever short staffed; leaving minimal (if any at all) time for any sort of self-care. But that needs to change. Today. Right now. The only way a nurse can prevent severe burnout […]

  • Bullying in the Nursing Industry Part II

    If you’re here, I’d like to think you read through Part I of this series. If you didn’t, go read it and then come back. Bullying is not something to be taken lightly even when it involves full grown adults. Nurses need to know that bullying exists, why it exists, how to recognize it and what steps they can take to combat it. The latter two we will discuss right here, right now. So! […]

  • Bullying in the Nursing Industry Part I

    If I throw the word ‘bully’ out, what comes to mind? Surely not college educated, sophisticated adults, right?! Sure… Bullies belong on the playground or in middle school where they harass the weaker, smaller or perhaps ‘different’ students. Right?? RIGHT?!? Wrong. Dead wrong. Bullies don’t cease to exist beyond the age of 12, or even 18. In fact, bullies very much exist among adults and unfortunately bullying is extremely prevalent in the workplace, particularly […]

  • The Secrets Your Nurse Is Most Probably Keeping From You

    The title is misleading; I’ll admit. Sure, there are things nurses don’t tell their patients because, well… every industry has its secrets even if perhaps they ought to be public. But these secrets are of the other kind. The kind that once you find out what exactly they are, make you respect nurses even more. And I’m about to divulge them. Nurses are EXHAUSTED At all times. In fact, even when they appear happy […]

  • Psychological Trauma: The Next Crisis?

    June is PTSD month. Ironic, huh? Things are finally settling down out here in the NY/NJ area, and we’re about to experience what I believe to be one of the aftershocks of the Coronavirus; PTSD. And I’m talking medical professionals here, to be clear. Now don’t get me wrong; doctors, nurses, and healthcare workers in general, are a strong bunch of superhumans who have seen it all. Unfortunately, I don’t believe Covid-19 falls under […]

  • The Things You Need to Know Before Becoming a Nurse

    Let’s pretend it’s pre-corona days. Sounds fun, no?? Life’s a bed of roses; people squish into subway cars like a pack of sardines, go out to bars and diners where they share drinks and food, crowd stadiums for some good ole entertainment and overall enjoy life. Ahhhhh…those were the days! Oh! And people also went to school and college, got degrees in an actual classroom setting, and even became nurses. Little did they know…HA! […]

  • Nurses Week In The Midst Of A Pandemic

    Who would of thunk?! It’s ironic, really. WHO declared 2020 The Year of the Nurse annnnd here we are. It most certainly is THE Year of the Nurse. And what happens when The Year of the Nurse and Nurses Week collide? Well, I guess it’s something like having your 10th wedding anniversary and 30th birthday fall out all in one! In other words; major presents expected. Nurses, though, are unlike any other breed. While […]

  • Caring for our Caregivers

    Everyone’s talking about it. In fact, it’s just about the only topic of conversation throughout the world. It, being COVID-19; the novel coronavirus that has completely shut down our planet. And while most of the population is sheltered in place, there is a select group of people, or should I say, heroes, who are out there on the front lines doing everything in their power to treat those infected and save lives. YOU, my […]

  • Corona Conundrums

    I thought that finding content last month for our monthly Dare to Compare rendezvous was difficult. Ha! This month, it’s like trying to pull teeth. Hollywood’s rich and famous are simply not there. There are no airports to snap them in, no red carpets to get that perfect shot… even a simple grocery run, which is just about the only place you may find a celebrity, is a gloves and mask affair. And then […]

  • Bold and Bright

    There hasn’t been a party, red carpet event, or charity function to speak of in quite a while… there hasn’t even been a random celebrity sighting with the entire country practicing social distancing!! Which prompted the following question. Do we entirely skip Dare to Compare this month (say what?!) or do we dig back a mere few weeks (which yes, feels like a few years!) and give you some of our signature MSC celebrity […]

  • When Nurses Go Home

    It’s the elephant in the room. And honestly, I’d rather keep this space all light and happy for the most part, but sometimes, we’ve got to tackle the dark stuff. SO. Covid-19… we’re coming at you from the MSC blogosphere. Basically, if there was someone who ever doubted that nurses were true heroes, that someone would have done a 180 at this point. Nurses and medical professionals are literally at the front lines of […]

  • Top Instagram Accounts Every Nurse Should Be Following

    How many times have you thought to yourself, ‘my goodness, how times have changed!’ in the last couple of years? Perhaps it’s a sign of my age, but I do find myself having these very sentiments with more and more frequency. As soon as I shared social media do’s and don’ts last month, I knew that my follow up post would involve me sharing my favorite Instagram accounts for nurses to follow. Makes sense, […]

  • Social Media Do’s and Don’ts

    It’s estimated that the number of worldwide social media users reached 3.5 BILLION in April 2019. And that number is only expected to grow! For good reason. Social media is a great thing! People use it to stay in touch with friends and family, to help grow careers and businesses, and for good ole fashion entertainment. And nurses, (or anyone in the medical profession, for that matter,) are no exception. However, they can’t use […]

  • Selena Slays in Color-block

    All those that grew up reading Dr. Dolittle, say Aye!! Well… so have I! Ahhhh, the memories… Dr. John Dolittle was the brilliant figment of Hugh Hasting’s imagination and serves as the central character in the Dr. Dolittle series. A kind but eccentric physician, who shuns human patients in favor of animals once he realizes he can converse with them, Dr. Dolittle proceeds to travel the globe to better understand the nature and history […]

  • Hey, Hannah!!

    You’re up to New Year’s, but I’d like to reflect on Christmas. Not so much because I’m feeling nostalgic already, but rather for the sake of a great fashion moment;) Perhaps one of the highlights of December in the entertainment/music world, is the KIIS-FM Jingle Ball. I mean, it’s all epic music, high profile celebrities, and holiday vibes. Count me in; right?! And guess who made an appearance this year?? Hannah Brown! She came […]

  • The Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for Any Medical Professional In Your Life

    I’ve done this to you once before. In 2017 to be exact. And I do it to myself every single year, since the very first time I joined the ranks of ‘old enough to start gifting others.’ In fact, I’m hard pressed to believe that this will be the case till the end of time. In case you haven’t figured it out, I wait till the very last second to shop for my own […]

  • Emilia Clarke Glows at Last Christmas Premiere

    Ummmmmm…why?? Why must you already discuss Christmas?!? I am knee deep in Turkey stuffing and cranberry sauce, and you’re trying to lure me out of the kitchen with talk of ‘the most wonderful time of the year.’ This woman right here, is mad. Annnd CUT! That was me acting out the thoughts running through your mind, FYI. But have no fear, I’m innocent. All we’re here to talk about is Last Christmas. It’s a […]

  • Diabetes vs. The Holidays

    Here’s a not so lovely fact. According to the American Diabetes Association, 30.3 million people in the United States have a diabetes diagnosis. That’s a whopping number and can lead us to safely assume that as a nurse you’ve encountered your fair share of diabetic patients. November is actually National Diabetes Awareness Month. November also kickstarts the holiday season. Put two and two together and you’ve got an equation that doesn’t make much sense. […]
