I wanted to share with you this extremely cool Playmobil set. It was circulating on Instagram and when I saw it I knew I had to get it. This is such a great tool to prepare school aged kids for an MRI and CT scan.
It is super affordable and lightweight. One downside is the shipping time, which can be 3 to 4 weeks! But it is definitely worth it.
I have big news I wanted to share with you all….. I GOT A JOB!!!
Just 3 short weeks after graduation I accepted the position. I will not be disclosing exactly in which hospital, but I can share it is in the Emergency Department. I will be starting in a few weeks!! AHHH!
This month’s app find is one that can help patients of all ages, as well as yourself.

It does require a subscription for the more detailed sessions, but there are a lot of free basic sessions that you can recommend to teenage patients and that you can try yourself. The sessions for younger children require a subscription.
Some examples of sessions they have for adults are:
I decided that I will post monthly finds of helpful apps. With how rapid technology is growing of course it’s only appropriate that apps are being generated to help children with hospitalization, self-expression, coping, etc.
Some of you may have heard of this app, but I just discovered it this week and I’M OBSESSED! It was developed by the child life department at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
