Want to Know About "Scrubs"?

Being a nurse has many benefits and rewards, but it is not for everyone. Nursing is challenging and stimulating. A job of being a nurse requires you to practice everything you know. It makes you think fast and learn how to prioritize and plan strategically. It teaches you how to do a lot of things simultaneously while keeping your focus and concentration. It trains you to remain calm and think clearly even during tough situations. Because nursing is constantly developing, it requires you to be constantly updated about changing medical procedures and techniques.

If you are a nurse or like to be one, there is a new beta version website, called Scrubs. This website is dedicated to all things nursing. From how to look fabulous in scrubs to physical and mental health for nurses as care providers. I found this website very user friendly that even I can enjoy it.

There is a pool in the site asking “What is your favorite fictional portrayal of a nurse?” My answer is Greg Focker in Meet the Parents, since that is the only name that I am familiar with (I watched the movie before). Apparantly, I am not the only one that chose him. The pool result shows that 21% of the participant chose him as well.

There is also a Tip Jar section that full of great tips that seasoned nurses give to the new ones on the floor. From “How to deal with patient who threatens to sue” to “How to deal with dying patient”. I left a comment on the latter topic because I think it’s the most difficult thing to handle and you certainly need experience to do it.
