Helpful Nursing Tip #1

Hey guys! So aside from complaining about how busy nursing school is, I would like to throw out some helpful nursing student tips now and again, as I come across them.

This week’s nursing tip is simple and easy:

Have you ever gotten to work, lab, or clinical and realized, OH NO, you forgot your ponytail!? Well have no fear! Here’s what to do:

  • Simply locate a glove
  • Carefully pull apart the stretchy band of the wrist from the rest of glove so that it doesn’t break and…
  • VOILA! You have a ponytail!


This actually works you guys! It has saved me more than a few times at work…tonight included. Another awesome idea? You can also do this for patients when they are asking for ponytails and your unit doesn’t carry any.

Well there you have it, a super quick and easy life hack that might just save your butt one day! Thanks for reading and have a great rest of your weekend 🙂
