SCRUB-JACKET-FEATURE

May 18, 2020 | Posted by: Admin

Welcome to another one of our TOP lists posts where we’ll be exploring the most popular black scrub pants for women. After speaking to many nurses, we understand the importance of having a quality pair of scrubs. Nurses are working in a high-intensity environment, so they need scrubs that not only make them feel comfortable at work but more efficient too. We believe if you feel good, you will perform better. 😊 With that said, we know you have different options when choosing a pair of scrubs. For example, you have several different brands, all offering their unique features, i.e., moisture-wicking fabric that’s wrinkle-resistant, pockets, neckline, pant style (jogger or straight leg), a waistband with drawstring, and more. Not only that, but some nurses also opt to mix and match by purchasing a scrub top and pants from different brands because of the fit and sizing. The entire process can become overwhelming if you don’t have the right information available in an organized way. So, we have made it our goal to provide the right information to you in a simplified manner in enabling you to make an informed decision.

Top 10 Nursing Trends in 2016

nurse-or-md-1

November 29, 2016 | Posted by: Admin

There have been many changes within the nursing industry over the years. Many of them can be attributed to the increasing cost of healthcare within the United States, and the declining population of nurse educators. At one point, there would have been a lot of schools offering the nursing program to prospective students, however this has changed significantly over the years. There are three main reasons why this has happened:

First, the cost of funding a school has increased by 3% over the last 4 years, making it harder to maintain a program. Secondly, this increase has led to an increase in tuition fees; lowering the number of students who enroll into a program. The fewer students there are, the less money being made by these schools. Third, the health industry has changed significantly because of stricter policies being that are being implemented by the government. In the news, we have heard stories of unfit nurses putting the patients’ lives at risk because they are NOT educated on the right protocol, etc. With that being said,

I would like to explore the top 10 nursing trends currently taking place in the industry.
