Who are you exactly?

We are two RN's who met in nursing school ten years ago and have been friends ever since! 

How did you come up with the idea for Snarkynurses?

We came up with the idea while carpooling to work (we lived together at the time).  We were thinking about all the things we would rather be doing than staying awake all night to take care of Bobs. That night, 9/29/14, @iwouldratherbe_ was born on Instagram. Eventually, we transitioned to @snarkynurses.

While we absolutely love our careers, we realize that inappropriate humor and networking with peers is what keeps us sane! The community of followers of @snarkynurses is amazing, we don't know about you, but it makes us feel far more united with our healthcare brothers and sisters, even if we poke fun at one another. 

What is your specialty?

We both started as CNAs on a Medical Surgical Unit and once we graduated remained on that same unit as RNs.  A few years later we transitioned into Critical Care and PACU. 

Where is this whole Snarkynurses Shop thing going?

Who knows! All we do know is that we always have a hard time finding gifts for our medical friends, especially in *one* shop!  So, we've done our best to curate some awesome things in one place.  :) 

Who is Bob?

A fictional non-compliant, slightly inappropriate but absolutely hilarious patient – which is 100% our favorite kind to take care of!
