These shoes are made for nurses. The footbed molds to the shape of your foot for perfect support and the rocker sole takes stress off your legs when walking or standing.

There's an app for that, and it's really helpful!

Nurses are busy, busy, busy and helpful medical tools can be a lifesaver! Smartphones are becoming quite the norm and there are some pretty nice apps for nurses out there. Here are a few that I came across:

: A free medical calculator. It helps you calculate a litany of different medical formulas and has some other helpful features.

: A blood glucose, insulin and medication recording tool. It will help any Diabetic patient manage their Diabetes, type 1 and 2 by recording record their insulin and medications in a diary and optionally report these to your doctor every 30 days.

with full-color images and audio. Recommended for both practicing nurses and nursing students, the Nursing Constellation Plus provides easy access to critical information and tools at the point of care.

What is all this talk about Shape-ups and do they really work?

What is all this talk about Shape-ups and do they really work?

Shape-ups nursing shoes have always sounded like a miracle worker to me, claiming to improve posture, strengthen the back, tone/firm thigh muscles, firm calf muscles, improve blood circulation, tighten abdominal muscles and reduce knee-joint stress. So whenever I see nurses wearing Skechers Shape-ups I always ask them what they think. I am pleased to report that I haven’t heard a negative answer yet!
What about people that have had surgeries, back problems, foot problems, etc.?

Shape-ups feature a unique soft kinetic wedge insert and dynamic rolling bottom to simulate walking on soft sand. Your heel sinks comfortable into the soft ground as you step, naturally roll forward as your weight shifts to the center and your balance is centered, and easily push off with your toe pad. The improved posture can have a positive effect for many ailments. Many consumers have reported a relief in muscle tension and back/joint problems. Skechers has reported on clinical case studies performed in the US and Japan, check out the results here.
Do the different styles work the same?

They share the same midsole and outsole so they fit and feel the same. There are many styles to choose from. Check out all of the styles here. My personal favorites are the Awareness which help promote breast cancer awareness and the Sleek Fit because the mary-jane style is different than the tennis shoe style and is perfect for casual wear!

A customer review of the Metabolize:
I love these shoes. I wear them at the office and on the
unit in L and D. My feet never get sore anymore and I don't come home with swollen ankles anymore either. After three months of use, I can tell a difference in my posture and the tone in my legs. It does help. They are still so comfortable. Best money I ever spent. Better than cloggs. -Becky NP Irving,tx

I asked Heidi W. who is a long term and trusted employee what she thought of them. Since she owns four pairs I figured she would quite the expert! She said:
To me they are the best thing I could have bought. I wear them because they help with me knees and my back. They have so much support and cushion in them that when I am on my feet all day I don’t feel the hardness of the floor. They seem to make me stand better so that I am not putting stress on my lower back. When I go from them to regular shoes I can feel the pain in my lower back and knees right away. I do have more strength in my legs so they must be building the muscles up. I own 4 pair of these so that I can wear them as much as possible.

I want to know: Have you tried any of the Skechers Shape-ups? If so, what has been your experience?

Product Review: Dansko Unisex Nursing Shoes- The Professional

High quality nursing shoes are an essential part of any medical uniform and especially important for those of you who spend long hours on your feet. Do you have a reliable pair of nursing shoes that get you through each shift? What brand/style do you depend on?

The Dansko Professional is a best-seller that receives consistently positive feedback. Here's the latest customer review of this shoe:

I have tried multiple brands and landed on Dansko Professionals a few years back. These shoes actually get more comfortable as they get worn in. The shoes are very good in slippery situations... wet tile floors, fry oil, all in all great slip resistant shoes.

-Kevin D., Virginia

Get Spring Style in a Scrub Dress from Lydia's

At the first sign of spring I pull out my warm-weather clothing and start packing away the winter sweaters; that’s what happened last night when I saw the weather forecast. After hearing that it was going to be 60 degrees today I immediately got excited and decided to wear a dress to work. Since I don’t wear dresses very often, it got me thinking, how many of our customers wear dresses as part of their uniforms on a regular basis?

I found a few on our site that I know I would like to wear if I had the right job for it- here are my top choices:

Left: Landau Medical Uniforms Student Button Front Dress
Right: Koi Uniforms 100% Cotton Scarlette Scrub Dress

So do you wear dresses to work? If not, what’s stopping you- a dress code, comfort, style? If you do, which dress is your favorite? Do you have a specific lab coat or nursing shoes that you pair it with? Leave a comment here and tell us about it!

Get a Fun New Style with Disney Scrubs

I love our collection of Disney scrubs and nursing shoes- we have everything from Tinkerbell to Pooh to Minnie and Mickey. They're such a fun addition to any medical uniform- even if you don't work with children.

A few days ago I posted a link to the Birki Maria Clog on our Facebook page and a customer commented about how she couldn't wait to wear the Winnie the Pooh clogs with a Winnie the Pooh print top. I liked her idea so much that I found three tops and three pairs of shoes that go great together and would create fun, stylish looks. Here's what I found:

From left to right: Cherokee Mystical Hideaway Contrast Scrub Top with the Birki's Maria Clogs in Tink Orange Flowers, Cherokee Eeyore Mock Wrap Scrub Top with the Birki's Maria Clogs in Winnie and the Cherokee Flexibiles 100% Cotton Big Minnie Scrub Top with the Birki's Dorian Clog in Minnie and Mickey

So if your looking for new women's scrubs try one of these looks next time you're shopping at Lydia's and let me know what you think!
