I recently had the opportunity to try out the HP HC Edition 800 G4 AiO (All in One) and am partnering with Hewlett Packard for this post. All opinions expressed are my own.

I’ve used many computers while providing patient care in the past, so I have a particularly critical eye when it comes to evaluating if the functionality is truly optimized for the nurse or provider.

But there are hundreds of different kinds of compression socks. How do you know which are the best compression socks for nurses?

Here’s my list of favorite nursing scrubs, shoes, underscrubs, compression socks, stethoscopes, badge reels, pens, pen lights, bags and more!

What’s the age-old problem that nurses and nurse managers deal with daily? COMMUNICATION. Inefficient communication. So much information is being thrown at you day after day, you’re overwhelmed before you even clock in. I wholeheartedly believe that we inefficiently communicate about basic things. This ends up costing money because we’re wasting time and resources (paper, […]
Hands down, the hardest class in nursing school for me was pharmacology. I’m bad at straight forward memorization, especially when it’s medications I’ve never actually used or seen in real life. Naturally, I squeaked by with a B in Pharmacology. I scoured the internet for various resources, but didn’t find much. Luckily there are pharmacology for nurses resources that can help!
