• A Covid Thanksgiving

    It’s Thanksgiving. It’s also 2020. And yet the circumstances surrounding the year we’ve all gone through, in no way cancel out the fact that we still must be thankful. In fact, I believe that this year, more than any other year in the collective memory of the human race, lends itself to an attitude of gratitude. Why?? Because we’ve all been through hell and back in our own respective lives. Some of us have […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • A Happy and Healthy Halloween

    Here’s a horrifying fact. According to the National Retail Federation’s annual survey, American’s are expected to spend $2.6 billion dollars on Halloween candy this year. Yes, that’s billion with a B. What’s more, thanks to the excessive eating and drinking that has somehow been justified since it’s ‘holiday season,’ the average American gains between 1 and 4 pounds between October 31st and Jan 1st. I would even venture to say that number is higher […]

  • 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, […]

  • Managing Stress in Nursing: 4 Tips New Nurses Need to Know

    Nurses are stressed out and burning out. In one study, 92 percent of nurses reported moderate to very high stress levels. In another, 70 percent of nurses reported feeling burnout in their job. So much stress at work isn’t good for your health. Over-pressured nurses are susceptible to weight gain, sleep loss, and drinking, among other health risks. It’s also bad for patient health. As Med Page Today reports, higher levels of stress and […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • Dressed in White

    It’s funny; I love the full-fledged fashion in scrubs available to nurses today, but at the same time, a little part of me still likes the look of the old time nursing uniform, with its crisp, professional look. Although the days when all nurses wear white are long gone, some stalwart nurses still stick to the old class look. Take Leona Campbell, for example. Throughout the decades that she was a nurse, she stuck […]
