    The Nurse Medic symbol is the merge of two medical crosses and was designed to give a respectable nod to the individual who has been licensed in both pre-hospital and hospital-based services. If this brand could talk it would say something to the effect of, “I’m here to help, regardless of what side you are on, your heritage or religion, oh and please don’t shoot.” The merged symbols have impressive individual histories, and I added the links below if you want an in-depth look. When I built the symbol, I had the following things in mind.

    The Caduceus, or staff entwined by the two serpents in the center of the Nurse Medic brand is actually not the medical symbol it’s commonly mistaken and used for (The actual medical/healing symbol is the single staff and snake known as the Rod of Asclepius), BUT, the Caduceus has a really cool background story and I felt it was a perfect fit for the merged professions. (I love the mythology)

    The Caduceus is actually the symbol of the Greek God Hermes, famous for his diplomatic skills but also a clever and mischievous being who is commonly depicted with wings on his sandals. He is known as the messenger and symbolizes the crossing of realms with stories of leading souls to the river of styx in the underworld. In one of his stories Hermes tried to stop a fight between two snakes and threw a staff at them, the snakes entwined themselves around it and the staff became known as the Caduceus.

    I feel this story is relatable to the Nurse Medic Brand as the two professions are both licensed in patient care but have very different practicing “realms,” both are handlers in transitions from this life to the afterlife and both are experts in their respective settings but would not be able to comfortably trade places with the other profession without additional training. The Caduceus brings together both professions even if they don’t always see eye to eye.

    So in summary, I’m proud of the dual license and If you are a fellow Nurse Medic, may your friendships stay mischievous, professional interactions diplomatic, travels safe and swift, care always be the best of both worlds, and your transitions to the afterlife peaceful.

    With Great Respect,
    Mrs. Nurse Medic
