Gannett Healthcare Group today announced the grand opening of the Nurse.com Store, an online retailer for nurses and other healthcare professionals. In partnership with Acumen Brands, the Nurse.com Store aims to meet the outfitting needs of an ever-growing healthcare industry by offering a variety of apparel ranging from scrubs to shoes. The website also features a nurse-to-nurse blog, Scrubbed In, written by registered nurse Meaghan O’Keefe, RN, BSN.
“Industry research confirms that the demand for healthcare professionals is up, and will continue to grow to meet the country’s increasing need for healthcare services. Our decision to open this store reflects Nurse.com’s commitment to support and advance the nursing profession as it flourishes,” said CEO Steve Hauber. “The Nurse.com Store offers a one-stop-shop for nurses’ professional clothing needs, as well as an opportunity to network and interact with the nursing community through the Scrubbed In Blog.”
Nurse blogger O’Keefe is from the Boston area and has an extensive knowledge of medicine, healthcare and wellness. She also is the mother of two young toddlers. “We are thrilled to have Meaghan O’Keefe join our team,” said Nurse.com National News Editor Jennifer Thew, RN, BSN, MSJ. “Her nursing experience and zest for writing enable us to deliver practical and innovative information to nurses in a blog format. Followers can expect the same credible, entertaining and informative material they have come to love in our magazines and online.”
Acumen Brands’ CEO John James, MD, said the partnership with Nurse.com was a natural fit. Dr. James said, “We understand marketing trends and customer needs in both the ecommerce and publishing industries. Partnering with Gannett Healthcare Group was the best way to bring our world-class ecommerce solutions to their industry-leading content and to serve the shared needs of both our customers.”
