• 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 […]

  • 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 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 […]

  • 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, […]

  • The Fountain of Youth

    There are few things as sure in life as aging. Aging healthfully and gracefully, though?? That’s entirely up to you. (Unless of course, you’ve been blessed with what they call, ‘good genes;’ in which case I hate you and you can skip this post.) In any case, while it may seem to be a rather morbid topic to bring up on a glorious day like today, when life looks good and we’re all going […]

  • Nursing School Supply List

    So temps have been dropping out here in Jersey. Not sure if it’s just a fluke or if summer is really on its way out the door. I’ve still got my fingers crossed for some hazy, hot, beach days, but my local Target is telling me to give up the notion; what with all those Back to School signs around every bend. And you know what they say. If you can’t beat ‘em, join […]

  • Top Summer Reads Take Two

    I can’t speak for you, but my idea of a summer soiree is an ice-cold glass of lemonade and a great book. Which is why we are officially rounding up my latest top 5 nurse reads for the SECOND time! I have a lot of questions, though. Is it considered a follow up to my last ‘Top Summer Reads’ blog post if it was a solid 3 years ago? Also, do I suddenly get […]

  • To A Better Night’s Sleep!

    Adults are a sleep challenged sub-sector of the human species. Nurses, even more so. Think rotating schedules, night shifts, over time, and high-pressure workdays. And here’s the thing; there is no magic pill to make these ‘challenges’ disappear and thus thrust you into a world of early bedtimes, sweet dreams, and easy wakeups. In fact, it is HARD to get quality shut eye as a nurse, let alone any sort of sleep at all. […]

  • Tips and Advice When Interviewing for a First-Time Nursing Position

    There were 3.2 million professionally active registered nurses in 2016, and all of them are hardworking people who have dedicated their lives to helping others. If you’ve devoted your life to nursing, you are likely excited about starting your career. However, before you can get to work, you have to land a job — and that means nailing your interviews. If you are feeling nervous about interviewing, that’s okay! A little nervousness shows that […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Which Grey’s Anatomy Collection Is Best For Your Needs?

    I believe that the busier the nurse is, the better her scrubs should be! So, really hard-working nurses need absolutely awesome scrubs, like Grey’s Anatomy nursing uniforms. The good thing about Grey’s Anatomy is that there are lots of options. The only issue is when you’re short on time, you don’t want lots of options. But you still deserve the best scrubs! So, today, I’m going to share with you the benefits of each […]

  • Scrub Talk

    You know those patients who have just so much to talk about? They chat with you about their life, your life (you kind of do your best to avoid their questions 😉 ) and everything under the sun …Until, busy as you always are, you find a very valid reason why you have to leave this delightful conversation. One of the first things that any of your chatty patients will discuss with you is […]

  • Carrie Goes Whimsical for Radio Disney

    I’m about to divulge some information that may or may not give away my age, but I’m going to put it out there anyways! I grew up on Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place, High School Musical… you get the picture??? Good times! So yeah, I’ve got a soft spot for all things Disney Channel, including Radio Disney. And if you don’t, then I don’t know you. The end. In any case, it’s this […]
