• To Be Or Not To Be- A Murse, That Is!

    There are statistics, and then there are STATISTICS. And in honor of Father’s Day; a day on which we celebrate the males in our lives, I’d like to bring ‘a STATISTIC’ to the forefront. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 91% percent of registered nurses are female, while a mere 9% are male. Why, though? Why, why, WHY?!? Stereotype; plain and simple. Despite the fact that gender equality is making headlines in today’s society, […]

  • Gigi Hadid: A Stained Glass Godess

    If we had a king and queen here in the big ole US of A, there would be a royal ball each year. Naturally. We do not, though… have a king… or a queen… in which case, sadly, there is no ball. BUT. We’ve got something really, realllly close to that royal ball, only it’s called the Met Gala. And if we’re still using analogies I will go so far as to say that […]

  • Of Motherhood and Nursing

    Breakfast in bed has been served, the fresh bouquet of roses is sitting pretty on your nightstand, the kids have all scampered off, and you’re lost in thought…. Perhaps it’s time to pursue a career. After all, the kids are only getting older, you’ve got more free time on your hands, and there’s that ever growing itch; to accomplish and make a difference in the world. But what to do? The adjustment of going […]

  • National Autism Awareness Month

    April is National Autism Awareness Month. And considering that about 1 in 68 children has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and that it is reported across ALL racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups, chances are that you, my dear pediatric nurse, have come across your fair share of autistic patients. Let’s get the facts straight, though. ASD is not, as the masses are wont to think, a single mental disorder. In fact, there […]

  • Why You Should Be Dating a Nurse This Valentine’s Day

    As if you needed a reason; am I right??? In all seriousness, though, dating a nurse isn’t all red roses and Godiva chocolates. There’s a non-conventional work schedule to contend with, crazy hours, emergencies, exhaustion… And the list goes on. In fact, if you’re dating a nurse this Valentine’s Day, you may be taking a rain check and celebrating on the 15th or 16th because, y’know, 12 hour shifts. On the flip side, though, […]

  • National Blood Donor Month

    Blood. It’s one of those things us humans tend to take for granted, until we lose it. And for millions of people, this ‘loss’ is a reality. Accident victims, cancer patients, and the likes, all count on blood banks being full at any given time with their specific blood type. In fact, according to the American Red Cross, someone in the U.S. needs blood every 2 seconds. At the same time, though, only 10% […]

  • Wonder Woman. Wonder Dress.

    If you had the choice to be either a Mediterranean goddess or Wonder Woman, which would you choose? Tough call, huh? Lucky for Gal Gadot, she gets to be both! An Israeli actress and model, Gal Gadot was honored at the Critics’ Choice Awards, with the second annual #SeeHer award. This was completely apropos as according to one Critics’ Choice Awards spokesperson, “Gadot broke through this year as a powerful voice advocating for women, […]

  • Gone Gifting

    If you’re a responsible human being who takes care of holiday gifts well before the holidays set in, please skip this piece and move on with your life. If, on the other hand, you’re as irresponsible as someone I may or may not know (please stop guessing; it’s rude!) then read on!! SO- as you’ve surmised, the holidays are upon us- like really, really, REALLY upon us. And as I’ve surmised, there are still […]

  • Selena Slays in All Black

    So there’s this really cool event that takes place each year. It’s called the Billboard Women in Music event. Nope, I’ve never been invited, but I heard that this year’s was epic! The reason?? The main award, titled simply, ‘Woman of the Year,’ went to none other than Selena Gomez. Yes, ladies; Selena is BACK!! And she is doing better than ever! She’s had an insane year on all fronts and this award meant […]

  • Attitude of Gratitude

    Thanksgiving is to turkey as… Thanksgiving is to gratitude. See what I did there? The turkey, or may I rephrase that as THE TURKEY, is not (as most of the country seems to believe,) the sole reason why we get together with family and friends and enjoy a (hopefully!) civil meal. Sure it’s nice to sit around and discuss which exotic stuffing and cranberry sauce merited a place at the table this year; however, […]

  • 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 […]
