In the winter 2013 print edition of Scrubs magazine, we bring you the scoop behind two new films about nurses, The Shift and Nurses: If Florence Could See Us Now. Plus, we shed light on a “humerus” contest that got nurses talking (and laughing). See the videos and link to the gallery below.
The facts in fiction…
If you’re tiredÂ of seeing nurses depicted in an unrealistic mannerÂ on screen, you’ll be excited about The Shift, nowÂ making the rounds at film festivals!
Watch the trailer forÂ The Shift:
…and documenting the facts
“Few people canÂ accurately describe what a nurse does,”Â says Kathy Douglas, RN, chief nursingÂ officer for API Healthcare. DouglasÂ decided to clear up the confusion, andÂ the result—a touching documentaryÂ called Nurses: If Florence Could SeeÂ Us Now—shows the breadth andÂ depth of the profession.

Fit to a “T”
Going to work each day would be tough if you didn’t have a sense of Â humor. Just how witty can you be? Last year, nurses who wanted to find out could, by entering the Nurses Week Humerus T-Shirt Design Contest (using a pun only a nurse could love). The yearly contest, which will begin again in April (each year will have a different theme), has spawned a dresser drawer full of witty tees!Â Don’t forget to check out this year’s winning T-shirt here and see more hilarious nurse t-shirts here!
