It’s National Nurse Practitioners Week

13 Nov

nurse practictionerThis week we salute nurse practitioners! As licensed, expert clinicians, nurse practitioners have an increasingly vital role to play in our health system.

With a health care provider shortage at the top of the national agenda, nurse care practitioners are prepared to provide high-quality, cost-effective, comprehensive, patient-centered care to patients across the country. Already, more than 916 million visits are made to Nurse Practitioners every year.

National Nurse Practitioner Week, November 10-16, 2013, is a time to celebrate the more than 171,000 licensed nurse practitioners in the United States. NP’s provide primary, acute and specialty health care services and partner with their patients, guiding them to make educated health care decisions and healthy lifestyle choices.

This pretty, playful, pink-ribbon print scrub top comes from the Koi Happiness collection.

Most of us are aware of Breast Cancer. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the National Breast Cancer Foundation reminds women they should have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages, and that everyone should encourage women they know to create such a plan.

You can learn how to create an early detection plan, get more information about the disease and treatment, or learn about hosting a fundraiser to provide mammograms to women in need at the Foundation’s website.

You can help promote awareness by wearing your pink ribbon scrubs and accessories during the month of October. There are many flattering and eye-catching items included in allheart’s huge selection. Wearing them shows your support for the cause and gives you a way to open a discussion about Breast Cancer Awareness with your patients and co-workers.

See some of our favorite scrubs and accessories with a Breast Cancer Awareness theme on Pinterest.

5 Tips to Stay Safe in the Sun

25 Jul

Summer is in full blast, which means you’ll probably be spending lots of time outdoors in the sun. Even though the beach may be calling your name, don’t forget to keep your skin safe while having fun. With just a few precautions, you can lower your chances of skin cancer and also prevent damage from powerful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Here are 5 easy tips to protect your skin:

  1. Use sunscreen! Look for at least SPF 30 and a “broad-spectrum” label. This will protect your skin against ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B rays.
  2. Reapply sunscreen throughout the day, especially after swimming. Even if the sunscreen is water-resistant, it is recommended to apply another layer after any sweat-inducing activities.
  3. Wear protective clothing, such as a light, long-sleeved shirt (like this one from Cherokee Workwear) or a hat and sunglasses to keep your eyes safe in the sun. Trust Your Journey sells several cute hats and visors that are perfect for outdoor outings.
  4. Try to avoid the sun between 10am-4am. The sun’s rays are the strongest during these hours, so search for the nearest patch of shade if you can.
  5. Look out for reflective surfaces. Sand, water, and snow can reflect harmful UV rays onto your skin, giving you a dreaded sunburn. Even if the sun isn’t out, you can still be affected by the UV rays.

Also, July is UV Safety Month, so it’s an opportune time to show some love to your skin. Encourage friends and family to adopt positive habits to prevent skin cancer and UV damage.
