Beyond the Nurses' Station's primary concept is life beyond the healthcare role. Being able to live a balanced lifestyle between the two. The nurses' station is a place where not only nurses but ALL healthcare professionals come together.
Beyond the Nurses’ Station (BTNS) is a female, black owned lifestyle brand that endorses diversity, strength and empowerment.
BTNS means living life unapologetically outside of the healthcare role. Our mission is to empower, motivate, and create a homeostatic lifestyle that supports healthcare professionals in and out of scrubs.
In December of 2018, the idea of BTNS was created by founder Tiffany, while she was in a transitional phase in her life and career.
She constantly battled with the thought that she had to fit in a box by being “just a nurse”. During these challenging times, she envisioned life (what it could be), if she not only continued following her dreams in healthcare but also pursue her passion for art and creativity. To combine the two, Beyond the Nurses’ Station LLC was created in March of 2020.
Through art and various creative outlets, Tiffany saw BTNS as a way to inspire healthcare warriors to explore other visions and aspirations, beyond the nurses’ station.
As a holistic resource, we emphasize with individuals as a whole, advocating for family, friends, career and business goals, wellness, creativity and more.
Our lifestyle values are balance, creativity, empowerment, diversity, quality, growth, representation, spirit of adventure, perseverance, collaboration and passion.
