Little Girls need Positive Female Role Models

        When it comes to little girls and pretend play the choices are quite limited. While there is nothing wrong with being a princess, ballerina or a fairy – these options don’t showcase rewarding real life careers such as that of a Nurse. As a child, I remember wrapping paper around my stuffed bear to symbolize broken or fractured limbs. I would fix the arm of my teddy bear by removing the paper and sending them on their way while awaiting my next patient. I always longed for dolls and accessories that would make my play experience more enjoyable and realistic. I grew up, served in the military, became a veteran, became a nurse and a mother of three and had no more time for pretend play. My children would see me get ready for work with my scrubs and white lab coat and would ask “Mom are you a Dentist or a Doctor?” As I explained to them the amazing field of Nursing it hit me, I had been a Nurse for over 15 years at that time and my children still didn’t quite understand the concept of what I did day in and day out. The children weren’t exposed to pretend play opportunities or accessories that conceptually made the Nursing field make sense for them. Worst of all, my Daughter wasn’t being given pretend play opportunities aside from being a princess, ballerina….or a fairy. As a Nurse Educator, I have a calling to provide our youth with positive role models. As a woman and the mother of a little girl, I have the responsibility...

The Nurse Dolls

          Hello, I have been working on this dream since 2009. A toy line focused on the most trusted profession in the world: Nursing. Each time I left for work in my white lab coat and scrubs on, my children would ask me, “Are you a doctor or a dentist?” I could not find any toys to educate my children about nursing and health topics on store shelves or online. So, I decided to start a product line with books, DVD’s and dolls to educate children about nursing. My biggest job is as a proud mother of three. I’m dedicated to providing positive images of the nursing profession for children and the world, including writing children’s books, developing animated DVD’s and a doll line focused on nursing. This is for those looking for products to provide health education and nursing role models to children. I think when too many people think nurse, getting sick or being hurt comes to mind. But, I hope to teach kids at a young age that seeing a nurse is a good thing. It means they’re getting well.           Explaining the ins and outs of nursing to my children inspired me to write my first two children’s book, N is for Nurse, and Wash Your Hands, from The Adventures of Nurse Nicole series. True to life, the book describes a mom who is a nurse explaining nursing to her three children.  In addition to books, I also created an animated DVD that explains how nurses and mom’s outsmart germs, entitled, “Battle of the Germs.”. Also, new to...
