I’m not going to beat around the bush on this one. Nurses need a bigger and better presence in the media. The Dr. Oz show is giving us that chance! While there are many nurses who would be great additions to the show, I’m just going to put this out there: I think it should be me.
The nursing profession requires a ton of heavy lifting – figuratively and literally. Unfortunately, this means those who practice it tend to be prone to musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), such as back injuries. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) estimates that, as of December 2014, nursing assistants have some of the highest incidence rates of MSDs, totaling about 393 across private, state and local government sectors.

Finding the best clipboards for nurses can be a bit of a challenge. Keeping vital information safe and in one easy to get to spot makes clipboards an important tool for nurses. Even with electronic medical records in place, there are still many times when nurses need to jot down notes, store small items, and have a stable writing surface while standing or walking.

However, it can be awkward and uncomfortable to let your stems show if you have developed spider veins.
