Leave behind all negativity, bad habits, and everything holding you back from reaching your goals. Your goals can be achieved in 2017.
The creeps come out at night, and it's your job to nurse them back to health. Surviving those long night shifts are no piece of cake.

As a nurse you are expected to be at your prime potential 24/7, here are some tips and tricks to keep your body energized at any time, so you can be ready for whatever comes your way during the night shift.

In an effort to reach new healthy heights, during the month of September, we will strive to better ourselves physically and create a healthier lifestyle.
It’s no secret that a profession in the medical field is not a piece of cake, here’s a few tips to make your job a little easier.
1.Use Triple gloves for Code Brown.
Code Brown is no fun for anyone. To save yourself from all the mess, try triple gloving. This protects your hands from contact with your patient’s feces or any other bodily fluids. Strip the first pair and work with your second pair of gloves when putting on his new diaper. Take the second pair off and use the remaining pair of gloves on your hands in placing a fresh sheet on his bed and in disposing of waste. This trick doesn’t only save time, but it also limits the chances of your bare hands getting in contact directly with your client’s excretions.
