From kids to collegians to nursing students, it’s that time of year that has us trading swimsuits for backpacks and floaties for notebooks.

Yep, it’s back to school time, and that has us wondering:

What is the #1 person, place, thing, or idea that helped (or is currently helping) you survive the crazy demands of nursing school?

Was it a special study buddy?

A lucky pair of socks?

A relaxing getaway?

Glorious caffeine?

Chime in as many times as you want on this Facebook thread, now through Sunday, August 23rd at midnight CST.

On Monday, August 24th, we’ll randomly select three winners to each receive a $50 Amazon gift card.

Not on Facebook? No problem, just email your answer(s) to to enter.

Alright, let’s hear what got you through, nursing school survivors!


Nurse Contest Alert: What’s your favorite patient one-liner?

Nurse Contest Alert: What’s your favorite patient one-liner?

Nurse Contest Alert: What’s your favorite patient one-liner? Enter to win one of three $25 Amazon gift cards!

Throughout your career as a nurse there will probably be many times that a patient says something in your presence that makes you ask, “Say what?!”

Most nurses have really heard it all — from kind to crass to sass to crazy — and because of that, nurses know that patients can say the darndest, sweetest, strangest, funniest things!

That’s why we want to know, from nursing pros like you: What’s your favorite patient one-liner?

It could have been something devastatingly funny … or, just something devastating. The kindest thing anyone ever said to you … or, really kind of awful. Whatever your favorite patient one-liner is, we want to hear it!

Share your favorite patient one-liner with us via Twitter or Facebook, now through midnight CST on July 30. Three winners will be randomly selected and each winner will get a $25 Amazon gift card!

There are two ways you can enter the contest, and they’re both a snap:

  1. Post your favorite patient one-liner on the contest thread on Medical Solutions’ Facebook page.
  2. Tweet your favorite patient one-liner to us via Twitter @MSMedStaffing

That’s it — easiest contest entry ever. We are really looking forward to hearing your notable patient quotables!
