My battle against the nurse’s cap

Florence Nightingale was among the first nurses who started wearing a nurse’s cap. The cap was derived by nuns and represented those caring for the sick. Hair was neatly tightened into a bun and covered by the cap. Back then becoming a nurse was typically seen as a female profession, but men were allowed to […] Find jobs at Careers by Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

Here are the lesser-known scientists the UK should put on the new £50 note

Scientist and engineers get a fair crack at adorning Bank of England notes. Since 1970, Isaac Newton, George Stephenson, Michael Faraday, James Watt, and Charles Darwin have all had their turn sharing a note with the Queen. I’d also argue Florence Nightingale, who gathered and analyzed data to inform her treatments and invented the polar area diagram, clearly counts as a scientist. But soon James Watt, along with his entrepreneurial partner Matthew Boulton, will give up their spot and be replace...

New Nikon Mirrorless System Will be Medium Format! No It Won't!

"That's the charge of the Light Brigade at Balaclava!""No it's not, it's Waterloo!"* Mirrorless just passed its 10th anniversary. It has been a success, yet has failed to take the market by storm. As you're no doubt aware if you're interested in digital cameras and/or Nikon, Nikon and Canon have been significant holdouts (although both have dabbled, halfheartedly), but Nikon has decided recently to get into mirrorless in a bigger, more Nikony way. It has been teasing its future announcement o...

5 Things You Should Know Before Becoming a Nurse

Being a nurse is a calling. It takes intellect, a fierce work ethic and great desire to help others to become a good nurse. Despite the fulfillment that comes with being a nurse and helping others, the job isn’t easy. According to the annual Gallup poll, nursing has been ranked as the most trusted profession for 15 years, consecutively. Although nursing has evolved over the years, it’s still surrounded by many myths and stereotypes, including what’s known historically about Florence Nighting...

Celebrating women in STM [timeline]

Throughout the month of March, Oxford University Press will be celebrating women in STM (science, technology, and medicine) with the objective of highlighting the outstanding contributions that women have made to these fields. Historically many of the contributions made by women have gone unsung or undervalued, and these fields have been male-dominated and inaccessible for women to enter. Today, there are many groups and individuals championing women to pursue careers in science, technology, eng...

‘Why am I with an emotionally unavailable person?’ Identify who you’re competing with

While some people openly admit to being competitive, I’ve often found that many people who are, don’t see themselves in that way. Because they’re perfectionists, people pleasers and often prone to comparison, self-criticism and highlighting how they’re not ‘good enough’, they don’t regard themselves as having or showing a strong desire to be more successful than others. It’s like, I’m not getting what I want so how can I be competitive? This couldn’t be further from the truth. If you’ve wondered...

Lady With the Lamp

by Linda Ryan   The year I was in third grade was a rough year. I seemed to catch just about every disease that came down the pike, and I missed a lot of school. I also found out what boredom was. Mama didn’t have time to read to me all the time, especially since I already knew how to read at least fairly well for my grade level, so I began rummaging through the house for every book I could lay my hands on. I read all my brother’s Hardy boys and started in on my own sets of Nancy Drew, Cherry Am...

There is no ‘job opening’; relationships are co-created.

Are you looking for a relationship right now? If so, consider whether you’re coming from an empowered place, or whether you feel inferior in some way and as if this potential future partner, who you might not have met yet, holds the power to determine your future. If it’s the latter, you are falling into the trap of behaving like someone who has to do ‘all the right things’ in order to be chosen. You’re hoping that someone will give you a home.

Blind Spots Block The Relationship You Want

“Natalie, I am sooooo ready to be in a relationship and settle down. I can’t [whatever they’re currently doing and suffering through] anymore.” I hear variations of this statement sooooo much, sometimes from the same people multiple times over several months or even years, and it’s often after sharing their dissatisfaction, frustration and even despair over what is currently happening in their lives. It’s not just that they’re not in the relationship they want; there is invariably something els...

What more can be done to protect the protectors?

“Something that ought not to be happening and about which someone had better do something now”. In 1974 this was the definition given to the policing mission by US Sociologist, Bittner. We can debate it but it neatly captures the complexity and dangers that police face every day. Whatever people view of the police, in the UK, when the wheel starts to come off the police will be called – they are always the bottom line. Bittner went on say that policing is like Florence Nightingale being in pursu...

They panicked, thinking that if they ran out of medications, it would come to no good (prob...
