• The Day Carrie ‘Blue’ the Crowd Away

    When I say CMA’s, you think?? Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, obviously. The Country Music Awards took place last week, and was hosted for the 10th consecutive year by none other than the aforementioned duo. They must be really, REALLY good for ratings if they’ve been invited back again, and again, and again, and- yeah, I think you get it. And while this year they were certainly better than ever, out of the two […]

  • Halloween in the Hospital

    You know it. In fact, even I know you know it. I also know that the child inside of you is trying to deny it and convince you that you’re still a child in some respects. But it’s time to face it. Halloween isn’t about you anymore. It’s all about the kids; the REAL kids. Not the kid inside you that likes to come out and play every now and then. Don’t get me […]

  • 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 […]

  • School Is In!!

    Spankin’ new notebooks at the ready? A stack of books that weighs more than you do? Scrubs all ironed out? Well then, you must be either starting nursing school or heading back there after the loooong (jk, that was a joke!) summer break. Easing into, or back into, school mode, particularly nursing school mode, doesn’t have to be too hard. For some real life, honest to goodness, school survival tips, keep reading! Make Friends […]

  • Green With Envy

    The Emmy’s came. The Emmy’s went. But the fashion stuck! And the look of the night, in my humble opinion, went to the ever outspoken Shailene Woodley. Everyone knows Shailene; she’s an industry fave. She even starred alongside Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon in HBO’s most recent and wildly popular miniseries, Big Little Liars. But you knew that. Right? RIGHT?!? I mean, who hasn’t seen this drama! In fact, the show made such an […]

  • Cha-Ching!!

    Everyone can use a few extra dollars. Fact. Of. Life. True- it may not buy you pure, unadulterated happiness, but it’ll definitely pay the bills, grow a savings account, get you across the world for a much needed vacation etc. Plus, it will definitely make you relatively happy, which is worth something. No? As a nurse, you’ve got it easy, my friend. There are so many ways in which you can leverage your skills […]

  • 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 […]

  • CNA: To Be or Not To Be

    From June 15-June 22 we celebrate the role CNAs, or Certified Nursing Assistants, play in healthcare. Sadly, though, when it comes to healthcare and the role medical professionals play in it, CNAs rank waaaay down there. Fair? No. Or should I say, NO, considering the amount of time CNAs spend with patients in comparison to any other healthcare provider. And the paycheck?? Puh-lease! A disgrace to say the least. So what’s my point here? […]

  • Gigi: A Vision in White

    Well, well, well… it’s that time of year again, isn’t it? If the Met Gala is the Oscars of the fashion world, then the CFDA awards, held this past Monday night at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC, are certainly the Screen Actors Guild Awards of the fashion industry. After all, it’s fashion celebrating fashion; or shall I say, the Council of Fashion Designers of America celebrating industry legends alongside fresh talent. No fashion event […]

  • Memorial Day Musings

    As with most holidays, the true origins of Memorial Day have managed to get lost in the fun and festivities associated with the actual day. Case in point- I say Memorial Day; you say beaches, bikinis, and barbecues. While the association is certainly correct, did you ever stop to think why such an association has become the norm? Didn’t think so- so here goes… Over the years, thousands upon thousands of brave, uniformed Americans […]

  • Bella Bares All

    So the Met Gala happened. And as it turns out, Anna Wintour has got a really good thing going! Are you aware that the Met Gala is officially a black tie affair held the first Monday of every May for the sole purpose of raising money for the Costume Institute; or in layman’s terms, the fashion department? Exactly- it’s a wispy bit of information floating through the dusty parts of your brain where you […]

  • 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 […]

  • Miranda Goes Bridal

    Ladies, and ladies… this one’s for you, courtesy of Miranda Lambert and the ACM Awards last Sunday! The Weight of the Wings artist just went down in history as the FIRST female songstress to win Female Vocalist of the Year- wait for it- eight CONSECUTIVE years in a row!! Sorry if it appears that I’m shouting at you through the screen… I kind of am; out of sheer excitement obviously:) Let’s just say she […]

  • Patient Safety Awareness Week

    ‘Up to 98,000 patients die annually in hospitals due to medical errors… An estimated 1.7 million healthcare associated infections occur each year leading to 99,000 deaths… Adverse medication events cause more than 770,000 injuries and deaths each year at a cost as high as $5.6 billion annually…’ Negative Nancy, much? Maybe. But that’s just because these number are REAL, people. And they’re courtesy of none other than the Center for Patient Safety. Don’t get […]

  • Roses are Red, Violets are Blue; It’s Valentine’s Day, Here’s a Gift For You!

    If I had to think of one subset of humans who deserve extra special love on Valentine’s Day, I’d choose nurses. Duh! Nurses are the ones who spend their days and nights caring for and loving strangers as if they were their own flesh and blood, and while a plush white teddy bear clutching a shiny red heart and a box of Godiva chocolates is really quite nice, let’s be real; nurses deserve something […]

  • Nurse Life Hacks You NEED Now

    Let’s face it; life isn’t all peaches and cream. So to make life just a wee bit easier, some genius out there introduced us to life hacks. Craving an ice cold drink? Wrap a wet paper towel around your beverage and about 15 minutes later… DONE! Need a simple and safe way to store cleaning supplies? A hanging shoe rack, anyone?? Lost an earring? A stocking over your vacuum hose will ensure it’s found […]

  • 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 […]

  • Spotted: J Law

    A spacecraft carrying thousands of sleeping humans hurtles through time and space intent on reaching its final destination; a distant colony planet. But what happens when one of its sleep chambers malfunctions, awakening two passengers 90 years too early?? Oh, don’t look at me- I haven’t seen the movie yet! Sorry for the tease; I can literally sense your brain trying to process and dissect the itty bitty synopsis I just gave you. Don’t […]

  • Giving Thanks

    The general population seems to be under the impression that the Thanksgiving feast is the be-all and end-all of the holiday. While I do love me some roasted turkey with cranberry sauce, topped off with a piece of buttery smooth pumpkin pie, the Thanksgiving holiday is a lot more than the delicacies it’s become synonymous with. Not buying it? I’ll prove it! Many nurses are on call Thanksgiving, their feasts consisting of carrot sticks […]

  • The Duchess Wows In White

    Kate Middleton wore my dress. I repeat: KATE MIDDLETON wore my dress! Well…it’s my sister’s dress to be perfectly honest. But you know how it is with sisters; her closet kinda means ‘my closet,’ soooooo…. I’m feeling pretty cool:) Closets aside, Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge, made a mind-blowingly gorgeous arrival at the London premiere of A Street Cat Named Bob; a film which benefits Action On Addiction, a philanthropic organization aimed […]
