Scrubsmag: Personal And Professional Rolled Into One

My cousin Karla who has recently graduated and is already an RN contacted me yesterday. We haven't communicated much since we moved here in Baguio, so I was very pleased to hear from her. Discussion turned to what's been happening lately to us, and with her, she's working already (not very happy about it, based on what she told me about her experiences with patients' relatives). I guess her university education did not prepare her for stressed and anxious relatives who snarls at anyone within snarling distance, which happens to be nurses usually. She says she was stressed, herself, and needed a break from work. Says she was looking like a makeover model, only she's the "before" version. I can relate. Huh. Being a mom also makes me like that sometimes. Okay, most times. Anyway, back to topic.

So I decided to point her to Scrubsmag.com. It's a sight for sore eyes, the first time you arrive on the page. But what made me recommend the page to her was that it's not just a clinical site, it offers so much more to nurses. From fashion, to personal health, to finances, and yes, even love advice. It's the complete package. I wonder if there's a mom site like that. Haven't explored yet. Anyway, Scrubs is the site to see now that summer is fast approaching. Who says nurses' scrubs can't be fashionable? I pointed Karla to the site's Scrubs page, and even she who always don chic scrubs was impressed. She used to say that it makes a world of difference to patients when they see nurses in good-looking scrubs, not just the drab traditional ones that nurses wear. This great summer checklist right here is worth a peek. Great ideas for a summer look.

Suffice it to say that Karla got off the phone with less weariness in her voice. She said she has to go check out all the sections of Scrubsmag, which is a good sign that she was already on her way to easing her stress. I'm sure glad I helped her, after all, it was her mom who practically sent me to college. God bless Tita Bing's heart. Without her I wouldn't have been able to finish my studies, so I help out her children in any way that I can. To cap off, nurses out there should definitely check out Scrubsmag. It's still in beta, but it holds so much promise that you can't help but be carried away by the vibe that the site carries.
