I am pleased to announce that the NurseCentral Lanyards are now available. It is always hard to represent them well in photos, but you can see how good they look. Of course things always look a little different in real life, but I'm sure you get the idea.

Apart from being able to purchase the lanyards through NurseCentral, I am going to give one away each month to the person who starts the best Forum Topic in that month. Of course I will retain absolute discretion regarding which topic wins :)

I hope you like them, I'm sure they will be a hit and will add a little more promotion for NurseCentral around the workplaces - or dog shows!

Hi Darren, are the lanyards quick release as these are a requirement for working in psychiatry. I might then be interested in a few for my ward.

Yes, as I describe in the article, I think that having a safety breakaway, or quick release mechanism is essential in any setting. I have seen quite a few nurses wearing lanyards that dont have quick releases and I think it is quite a worry given that you dont know what you might be confronted with on any given shift or situation.

The lanyards are great - love the colours. Just a thought - I have been wondering about lanyards as an infection control hazard. Like mens ties, they dont feature high on the washing list!

Hey

I use my lanyard and have all my work ID attached to it, this way a) I cant lose any of my ID cards but also b) It is advertising the website. I have had several people ask me what the site is about, and I have encouraged them to have a look and also join.

PS, Suggestion, is it possible to get them in blue ? or is the standard colours Orange and Purple ?!

Hi Aaron,

we only had them printed in orange and purple to match the site colours and still have quite a lot left.

On the next print run I am happy to survey people and see what people would like to see. They are quite popular as most nurses now wear them as you say to hang IDs, keys etc off them.

Naturally the idea was that they would be worn in the workplace to promote NurseCentral, so I appreciate your comments.

Cheers :)

I think the quick release mechanism is really good idea but really annoying if it say gets hooked on somehting realy simple and it pulls off and then you have to stop and find the ends and reconnect them. But better than being strangled to death i say! Im interested in buying one, but ive got heaps of lanyards lol.

I belive many people will agree with the quick release mechanism is great especially when a reisdent / patient decideds to grab hold of your id and wont let go. Many a time it has broken lose when a patient / resident has been trying to pull me in closer.

Oh yeah and they hold ur ID / Keys :P

@margsandtony

I've now corrected the link in the top post so it works, thanks for letting us know it broke.
