My experience of being a nurse roots back to my childhood where I grew up watching my grandmother come home from work in her white scrubs. I remember being excited to play with her stethoscope not realizing that I would be preparing myself for my career ahead. Now, as a travel nurse, I love my job as I believe it is my mission to serve others. I spend 12-hour shifts constantly moving around in uniform. I believe design in terms of fit, functionality, performance and comfort are key. Until now, scrubs didn’t give the style and comfort that I needed and they definitely didn’t have the best fit for my curves. I quickly realized that the scrubs I had in my closet weren’t designed with me in mind. After years of frustration with this dilemma and wearing scrubs I didn’t love, I was determined to change the narrative for nurses like me. I searched for a couple of years for the right fabric for comfort and style and launched a size-inclusive brand for the medical professional on and Off-shift, MODRN STUDIO®.
As healthcare professionals, we are focused on serving others. In doing so, we often forget to take care of ourselves and eventually fall victim to burnout. I plan to change that so that we look and feel great while on and off-shift. I didn’t take the traditional nursing route which I thought was not only slightly rebellious but a bit modern, hence, the term MOD RN, the perfect depiction of my brand. Here, we bring a modern flair to a dated industry all while keeping the idea of work-life balance in mind. Whether on or off shift, we’ve got you covered.
