As summer draws to a close, if you’re a nurse practitioner student you’re likely looking forward to a fresh new start come the new academic school year. Even for those of us who are no longer in a NP program, September is a time to power up, get motivated, and create a game plan to maximize the rest of the year. We’ve teamed up once again with clinician-founded company Medelita for a giveaway that will help you kick off your fall in style, comfort, and peak clinical performance.

Medelita is already well known for the quality and flattering yet functional fit of their nursing scrubs and lab coats. But most importantly for anyone in medicine who is balancing a hectic student schedule, Medelita products are made to be supremely low maintenance, with performance fabric that is antimicrobial, wrinkle + stain releasing, and maximum durability to withstand hundreds of washes at industrial laundry settings without fading, pilling, or tearing. The result is easy-to-care-for scrubs that can be machine washed with the rest of your laundry, and won’t compete for clothesline space with your yoga gear (if you even have time for hang-drying your yoga gear!).

What does that mean for you? Less time spent caring for your scrubs and more time spent wearing them while saving lives or studying.

This month two lucky winners will have the chance to win a Back-to-School bundle of Medelita goodies to help you get through your semester with ease: a set of Medelita custom embroidered scrubs + a Medelita scrub jacket + and ERKA Finesse stethoscope (around $300 value). 

Here’s how to enter: 

1. Comment below (include your email address!) with the reason you could use new clinical gear for your NP life. Or, email your entry to thriveap@thriveap.com. 

2. We’ll select a winner by August 29th, 2018. 

Wishing NP students the best of luck this back to school season!

  • I started an organ transplant NP fellowship a month ago at Vanderbilt and I could defintely use some new gear! I still have the same stethoscope from nursing school, and I would love to step up my clinical assessment skills with a new ERKA and look the part with new scrubs! Thank you!!

  • I could really use that new stethoscope since somebody walked off with mine from the unit! I thought everybody knew that the charm on it made it mine. How could they not know? It said “LAUGH!”

  • I’m finally starting NP school after years of trying to create a work-life balance that would allow me to pursue this career/personal goal as a single mom with three kids (ages 17, 12, and 7), three nursing jobs, a mortgage, bills, and now a sizable school loan at the end of my three years of grad school. I could really use some new scrubs to update my look since I spend most of my waking hours in them. A new stethoscope would be great as well! I could retire the one I have from active duty. Thanks for the consideration…

  • I am a returning adult student, soon to be starting clinicals. Having new gear at the start of a season always feels great. I hope
    I win!

    Could use a new stethoscope because mines is 13 years old and ready to retire. New scrubs would be nice to have to add to my professional wardrobe! Thanks!

  • Brette Konopka says:

    I recently transitioned to urgent care and invested in 3 pairs of good scrubs but I’ve quickly learned that these wear relatively fast with 12 hour shifts. I also just realized my stethoscope is from nursing school…holy moly…

  • Sharon Simon says:

    I have the same stethoscope that I’ve had for years. I am in clinical practice, I am a DNP student, and I am teaching. (Student loans, new degree, and a kid in college mean working LOTS. Haha.)
    I would love to try out a new stethoscope and new scrubs. Good fit and quality are hard to find in scrubs!

  • Hoping to be selected for the clinical swag giveaway! I am currently seeking to purchase new equipment for my PMHNP program and would be ecstatic to win a new stethoscope.

  • I’d love to nominate my friend Emily from school. She is so amazing and deserves a treat 🙂 she even had a baby a week before our summer rotations and there she was in class ❤️

  • Mi Remington says:

    I could use new clinical gear because I am a low-income NP student. I took out student loans to pay for my tuitions. Meanwhile, I am working 40 hours per week to support my family and with the increasing tuitions this year, I am facing more challenges financially. Therefore, I would greatly appreciate a helping hand. Awarding this giveaway would further motivate me to pursue academic excellence to become a great NP. Thank you!

    As a new grad NP I am still looking for my first NP Job and could use fresh scrubs & equipment. I have so many student loans to pay back just like many of the other NP students and I am working 2 RN jobs right now while job hunting to earn as much as I can to throw at Sallie Mae so I can get her out of my life as quickly as possible!

  • Jennifer Shuler says:

    I would love to have new gear! I’m a hospitalist and work long hours and take a lot of call. My scrubs have taken a beating lately!

  • I am a new NP grad with a new job! I am working in Native American Health, doing well woman exams. I am the first female that the clinic has had in several years, so I am very busy helping this community get back on track with their health.

  • Debbie Whitmer says:

    I just moved to a new home and due to problems beyond our control, we have had to store most of our belongings. I could really use some new gear. Thank you.
