Things I look for in nurse badge reels
What I think about BadgeBlooms®
I wore these bad boys for two shifts and they met all of my aforementioned badge reel requirements. I think they’re good quality and held up well when I badged in and out of rooms all day. They stayed in place on my scrubs. They also did not droop at all.
I also think the price-point is appropriate. There are a ton of options (from funny to personalized to military to professional) and they range from $4.99-$18.99… from the ones I checked out. There’s over 1000 different badge reel options (say whhhhhatt!) so I didn’t search through every single option. The store has been up since 2011 and she has a 5 star rating with over 5,400 reviews and over 42,000 sales. That track record alone would have been enough for me to purchase.
I definitely recommend these. I think the price-point is appropriate for the quality and design and if you get one on sale or buy a pack, I think you’re getting a really good deal.
Also, BadgeBlooms® has always donated a portion of proceeds to a charity dear to the founder called the Save Abandoned Babies Foundation in Chicago, IL!
