Heroes Among Us: Mita Davis, RN, BSN 

Mita Photo

It’s time to meet Mita! We are thrilled to continue our Cherokee Heroes series and introduce you to this month’s Cherokee Hero, Mita Davis, RN, BSN. Mita has been a pediatric nurse for more than 10 years and works in Radiology. Growing up, Mita always enjoyed helping with her aunt’s four children, and she knew from this young age that she wanted to become a pediatric nurse. In fact, her favorite part of being a nurse is that she gets to be herself. A self-described Betty Boop, Mita likes talking to everyone, and it’s evident that her outgoing personality and positive energy touch the lives of the children she cares for as well as their families. As Mita tells us, “You know you’re a nurse when you have that feeling that you’ve helped someone. You know that you’ve done your part, even if it may be a small part.” But after spending time with Mita and sensing the warmth that she brings everywhere she goes, we know that the part she plays in helping those around her is anything but small.

Here are some fun facts about Mita:

  • She describes her work as “exciting,” and even though it can be sad at times, it is incredibly fulfilling.
  • The bond with her coworkers and their strong sense of teamwork, “make her whole day awesome.”
  • Just like her stethoscope, the flower in her hair is one of her must-haves for a day on the job.
  • She’s known around the hospital as Superwoman because she once lunged onto a moving train!

Mita calls herself “vivacious,” and it’s clear that her bubbly nature, positive outlook and generous spirit make an impact on the people around her every single day. And once you watch her video, we know she’ll make an impact on you as well.

Love her look? Mita is wearing a Cherokee Workwear Originals Mini Mock Wrap Top in Ceil and a Cherokee Workwear Originals Pull-On Pant in Ceil.

Critical Care Awareness Month 

Hi friends! Did you know that May is Critical Care Awareness Month? We are delighted to honor critical care professionals and the incredible work they do each and every day. Patients are admitted to the ICU during the most vulnerable times in their lives, and the scope of knowledge, help and support that critical care workers provide to these patients and their families is beyond compare. Lives are saved every single day. While the care provided is indeed critical, it’s the professionals themselves who are truly key in aiding people during their time of greatest need.

As a way to celebrate and thank critical care professionals, it’s traditional to wear the color blue throughout May. In fact, ICUs are decorated in blue as a way to highlight this special month. Cherokee Uniforms is proud to offer many blue looks that are a perfect way to honor the blue-ribbon professionals working in critical care.

Heroes Among Us: Alicia Britt, RN 

040114_Cherokee Hero - Alicia Britt-1

April is all about Alicia! We’re excited to continue our Cherokee Heroes series and introduce you to this month’s Cherokee Hero, Alicia Britt, RN. Alicia has been a cardiothoracic ICU nurse for three-and-a-half years and works at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. When she was in nursing school, she knew that she would love to work with children (whom she calls “the little people”), and appropriately, she also knew that she would love to work with the heart. And it really comes as no surprise that it’s Alicia’s heart that shines through in the work that she does. What she enjoys about nursing is the way in which every day is different, every patient is different and every day brings something new to learn. The field of medicine is always changing, and she loves how nursing “keep[s] you on your toes.” And since her coworkers compare her to Speedy Gonzales, we know those toes are moving fast at all times!

In addition to the importance of patience, compassion and a sense of humor on the job, Alicia places a great deal of value on teamwork. In fact, she follows the indispensable advice that she learned during a rotation that, “you’re only as good as your weakest link.” When people work together in an open, honest environment and are never afraid to ask questions or ask for help, it makes everybody stronger. That’s a message that comes straight from the heart.

Here are some fun facts about Alicia:

  • She loves her 49ers!
  • Her badge has bells on it that were a gift from a coworker. Now everyone knows when she’s coming around the corner.
  • She takes care of children of all ages, from newborns to 20-year-olds.
  • Details mean so much to her because the smallest changes, such as a slight change in a heart rate, can make all the difference in the ICU.

Alicia says that no matter how stressful the situations she faces may be, it’s important to be able to “smile at the end of the day.” And when you watch Alicia’s video, we know you’ll be smiling, too.


Love her look? Alicia is wearing a Cherokee Workwear Originals Round Neck Top in Teal Blue and a Cherokee Workwear Originals Flare Leg Drawstring Pant in Teal Blue.

Say Hello to the Hospital Critterz 

Hi friends! Have you met the Hospital Critterz? They’re the cute, fun and exciting characters adored by children, parents and pediatric caregivers alike, as featured on the national daytime talk show, “The Doctors.” And now the Hospital Critterz have a starring role on their very own scrub tops.

Based on the Hospital Critterz children’s book series by Stacey Laura Lloyd, the Hospital Critterz characters help children feel more at ease in a hospital setting while also highlighting the amazing work that healthcare professionals do each and every day. As neonatal nurse Terri Forehand, RN, writes, “The nurse in me loves this book, and the parent in me thinks this is a magical adventure that kids will love to read.” Now’s the time to share the Hospital Critterz with your little patients.

Spring has Sprung 

What comes to mind when you think of spring? Flowers blooming? Birds chirping? Gardens growing? One thing is for sure: after a long, cold winter, spring is a welcome time of rejuvenation. And what better way to rejuvenate and replenish than to start with your very own work wardrobe. Here at Cherokee, we’re inspired by the exciting changes that spring brings around us. We enjoy celebrating this time of year with bright colors, special designs and fun prints. When it comes to spring, looking great is always in season!

Here are some of our favorite spring-themed scrub tops that are bound to put a spring in your step.

Size Does Matter 

Small? Tall? Where do you measure up? Cherokee Uniforms knows that you have a style all your own, which is why we offer more sizes and colors than any other scrub brand and have a full range of options designed specifically for you. But don’t just take our word for it! Ask Shaytonya Tolbert and her coworkers at the VA Hospital in Asheville, North Carolina:DSC_2852_3

“My long legged colleagues and I have been in search for years for a fabric that feels good but also hangs and fits well with our height, and we have. We LOVE the Cherokee Workwear Stretch 4222T [Drawstring Pant]….The length is actually long enough for us, and we no longer feel like we are wearing high water scrub pants. The feel of these pants is so nice that I’m able to wear them straight from work to run errands, and they feel and look more like a dress pant than scrubs. We LOVE them and want to applaud you for a job well done. FINALLY A NICE PANT FOR US TALL GALS.”

Isn’t it time you LOVE your scrubs?
