Many women struggle with various infertility issues and treatments. Some of these women use donor eggs, fertilized and implanted through IVF, to help carry successful pregnancies to term.

When you have a family that is addicted to devices like we are getting power back into each one is important to keep the peace. There’s nothing worse than a 4 year who wants to play Minecraft but has 0% battery life on his iPad. That would usually be the point where he picks up his foam Minecraft sword and wants to act out the game with me in real life… and oh yea, I’m a creeper. But since we’ve have our Griffin PowerDock 5 centrally located, and at an accessible height, he just plugs it right in on his own and I no longer have to be bludgeoned.

Medical assistants are often the first line of contact between the patient and the physician, and they work in a variety of medical environments, including hospitals and private clinics.

Exercise and Activity Energizes the Busy Nurse

imageAs a nurse it’s hard to find the time to exercise. Heck, it’s hard to find the energy for it! Read on for tools for fitting your exercise in as a busy nurse.

Sometimes as nurses we don’t have time to exercise. On top of that we just don’t have the energy. Working 12 hour shifts feels like a marathon in and of itself.

But this work-exercise see-saw can turn into an unhealthy, vicious cycle. If I don’t work out- I feel tired. Too tired? I just can’t get up the energy to work out. It goes on and on. Round and round. And it’s hard to get on top of our energy levels if we’re exhausted!

This Nerdy Nurse Loves Wearing Glasses

I remember the first time I was told that I needed glasses. I was in college and sitting in the back of the room. The board looked terribly fuzzy and I wasn’t quite sure if maybe I hadn’t got enough sleep or if the teacher just had terrible hand writing. I asked a few classmates around me if they were having trouble reading the board. A few of them mumbled something that was not comprehendible. Two of them gave a succinct “nope”. I was a back of the class kind of girl so I just toughed it out for the day, but I did actually want to see what was going on so I sat closer to the board the next time

How to Improve Nursing Morale and Avoid Burnout

How to Improve Nursing Morale and Avoid Burnout

Nursing can be a monotonous and stressful profession. Your daily routine can become so persistent and the appreciation you feel for what you do often seems minimal. While there are some that feel the paycheck should be enough, there are others who picked nursing as their profession because they wanted more than just money in the bank.

Unfortunately, nurses often give of themselves to the point where they may begin to feel defeated. They may start asking themselves “Why did I start doing this?” “What made me want to be a nurse to begin with?” “Does what I do really matter?”

In order to prevent getting to this point as a nurse, it is important that you take steps to prevent burnout. In the process you will also help to improve nursing morale. It’s not hard. It’s just a matter of being proactive and positive.
