The month of pink has come again! And travel nurses, like so many other healthcare workers, have an added stake in the fight against breast cancer. All month long, people across the nation will take part in bake sales, 5k runs, and penny wars to raise funds and awareness of the number one health-related fear for women. Luckily, there are a number of ways that you can join the fight again breast cancer and show your support at work:
Pink scrubs: If it wasn’t obvious already, you could wear pink scrubs or, even better, pink ribbon scrubs! Many brands, including Cherokee and Gelscrubs offer pink ribbon apparel and, of course, if you purchase your Breast Cancer scrubs at Scrubadoo, we donate 100 percent of the proceeds to research. Now you have no excuse!
Badge Reel: A simple and easy way to add a little Pink Ribbon flare to your scrub outfit is to invest in a supportive badge reel. Put your ID on one of these and everyone will know about your stand in the fight against breast cancer.
Pens: Although it may sound trivial, replace all your pens at work with Pink Ribbon pens. Think how many times people see you make notes or scribble down a reminder. Now you can make a statement each time you put pen to paper!
Organize your co-workers: If you want to go above and beyond this month, talk to your co-workers and organize a group to participate in a 5k or some other fundraiser. Not only is a great option to get you and your co-workers active, but it offers a great way for you all to meet up outside the office and relax a little. Plus, if you’ve recently started a new assignment, what better way to get to know everyone?
