Nurse of The Month: Jada Evans

Ever met someone and right away you just hit it off? That’s how it was with this month’s feature. I don’t know what it is but we just clicked and I felt like I knew her for a very long time. As you know, I recently started working at the Children’s hospital, this was my first clinical job that I’ve had where I was going to be working with children; I have all my experience with the geriatrics population. I’ve had to learn a lot being in this new environment. EVERYONE at my job really believes in teamwork. Although, everyone is amazing, there’s this one Nurse that I got attached to and developed a bond in such a short space of time. She’s super smart and is a badass at what she does, an amazing teacher, she has taught me a lot in such short space of time. It’s only right that I show my appreciation to her by making her this month’s feature. Read her story below.

All About The Scrub Life Turns 1// What I’ve learned So Far

Do you know what time it is? It’s celebration time! Can you believe it’s been a year since I’ve occupied space on the internet and can now call myself a blogger? ( I know right who can believe it). A lot has happened over the last year, some good and some not so good but I can say I have learned a lot being a part of the blogosphere.
As some of you know when I published my first blog post The Beginning… a year ago, I told you I had this idea for 2 years before I started. I had no clue what I was doing or getting myself into but I was prepared, now here I am a year later.
I had this plan of what I wanted to talk to about in this post, but a conversation I had recently with someone who wants to start blogging changed that idea.
Instead I’m going to talk about what I learned over the past year and give some tips on what you should consider if you plan on starting a blog, vlog, etc.

28 & Winging It

As you know I celebrated my twenty-eighth birthday about 2 weeks ago and I feel like I’ve been winging my last couple years in my 20’s. Like I mentioned in my birthday post Year Ventiocho , my goal is to be fully at peace and to be more in tuned with myself. I had plans of sharing things I learnt over the last year, but then my blogger sista over at Passionate Woman started a challenge where you write about fun facts, lessons and confessions about yourself so I thought why not kill two birds with one stone. So here goes.

Year Ventiocho

This past Memorial day weekend I celebrated my 28th birthday (ya girl is getting oldddd) and let me tell you, it was one of the best times I’ve had in a while. My bestfriend came to visit me from Chicago so that was a plus, I was able to catch up and reconnect with some friends that I haven’t seen in months/years, so I basically spent the whole weekend celebrating with friends and family.Read More »

Nurse of The Month: Emelda Benjamin

Ever felt connected to a person but never met them? This is how I feel about this month’s feature. Almost a year ago I became close to Emelda’s daughter via social media when I saw a tweet stating her mom was sick. I sent her DM right away sending my well wishes and we hit it off right there and then. I would periodically check in on her mom to see how she was doing. I found out later her mom had cancer and was also a Nurse, and that bond grew stronger. I felt like I was on the journey with them, I received updates on her chemo appointments. I would just offer up my support as much as I could. It was only right I featured her on my blog as she’s such a warrior! I sent these interview questions while she was completing her last rounds of chemotherapy and she took the time out to answer them. I’m happy to say that This month’s Nurse of the month Emelda Benjamin is now a proud cancer survivor.

Nurse of The Month: Tiffany Wurie

It’s that time of the month! I’m so excited about this month’s feature. This month’s feature is someone who is very near and dear to my heart; she’s someone I’ve known all my life. She’s also one of the many reasons why I decided to pursue a career in nursing. Her Story is one I’m truly happy to share. April’s Nurse of The Month is my cousin Tiffany Wurie.

“The road to success is not always a straight line”. Sometimes you just have to be determined.
After a rough start in college, Tiffany Wurie finally decided to pursue a career in Nursing. The first obstacle was grades that weren’t stellar. After many rejections, finally came an acceptance to an Associate Nursing Program where she graduated in 2011 and continued to complete a BSN in 2014, graduating Summa cum laude. Tiffany specializes in public health and has worked in several areas including pediatrics, trauma, hospice, and managed care. She has an immense love for people, for Nursing, and for learning and she is currently pursuing an MSN in Nursing Administration. She has a passion for health policy, removing barriers to health care and health disparities. She hopes to one day impact the way minorities especially view and receive health care.

Embracing Your Uniqueness

“I’ve been gone for a minute, now I’m back with the jump off” I feel like it’s been an eternity since I’ve had a new Blog post and I’m sure you guys feel the same way, but you know they say absence makes the heart grow fonder. It’s the start of a new month and I’m back like I never left.
I have a valid reason for my slight absence, ya girl got a new job (Praise Jesus!). I got a job at the children’s hospital working in the pediatric ICU as a clinical tech and I absolutely love it! It’s my first time working with kids and it has been amazing.
