Hi All--I work at a small-ish hospital and some of the units have hoodies that they are allowed to wear at work (our uniform policies are otherwise pretty strict) with slogans/logos on them that represent their unit. ICU, for example has a slogan about not being "tachy". My floor is gen-surg/med-surg/trauma. Mostly surgery, in reality. We have a great team and the highest retention in the hospital. I think we deserve hoodies too! But I'm completely at a loss when trying to come up with something catchy that represents us as a specialty. Any ideas?

Please don't do anything tacky like, "Nurses call the shots (illustration of syringe with dripping needle)." We all know it's not true enough.

Personally, I like Laura Gasparis Vonfrolio's catchphrase: "You need a nurse to save your life." See how that flies, LOL.

I don't consider myself a terribly serious person, but I'm not sure I'd want to wear something with a cute or "witty" slogan on it at work. Just imagining the types of patients I encounter makes me feel odd about it. Playfulness is good, but must be selective.

Im hoping to come up with something that represents who we are as a specialty.
