Seller Spotlight: NursesLounge

by

Gail from (NursesLounge) knows what nurses want — and it’s no surprise. She spent 36 years in nursing and if there’s one thing nurses have, it’s a sense of humor. While she started out designing as a stress reliever, it soon became more than just a pastime. “I’m obsessed,” she told us. Gail took some time to talk to us about her most popular designs. 

Nurses love t-shirts, tote bags and invites for nursing school graduation and retirement parties. Nurses love to laugh and there’s a lot of shared bonding that goes on within the profession. For example, “When my shift ends, I have to go light myself on fire” is not a phrase that calls for alarm. After being exposed to so many germs, nurses often feel like they have to disinfect everything — with fire.

Here are some of my favorite products:

Nurse Graduation Graduation Invitations Damask
Nurse Graduation Graduation Invitations Damask by NursesLounge

I have found that nurses love pretty things and this most likely stems from having to wear drab scrubs while working.

Retired Cardiac Nurse Pillow Monitor Design

Nurses enjoy gifts that they can relate to — I drew this basic cardiac monitor as a lasting memory to give to a retiring cardiac nurse.

Funny NICU Nurse Travel Mug "Coffee and Meconium"

This mug was designed especially for neonatal or newborn nursery nurses who can appreciate the term “meconium.”

Nurse Clock Cat Nurses "Full Moon"

I like using bold and bright colors when designing — again this most likely stems from having to wear white or drab scrubs for so many years. The “full moon” is something all nurses definitely believe in.

Nursing Student Tote Bag "Class of 2013" Black

With the right software and a mouse, I am now able to draw all of my own medical equipment and medical supplies. I use my own art, again in bold colors, in most of my designs.

Registered Nurse Whimsical and Abstract Galaxy S3 Cover

I love all things whimsical.

Having spent a few years as a cardiac nurse has enabled me to incorporate cardiac rhythm strips into many of my designs.
