 'Scrubbing In' follows a group of travel nurses assigned to work at an Orange County, CA hospital for 12 weeks. Relocating from across the country, these nurses have left their hometowns and lives behind for short-term hospital contracts, with the added benefit of exploring a new city. For Tyrice, Chris and Fernando, this isn't their first tour and they're considered experts of the program. For first-timers Adrian, Chelsey, Michelle, Crystal, Nikki and Heather, this is a new journey they're embarking on together, looking for a change from their previous nursing jobs. (from

So how does an Orange County interior designer end up on a show about nurses?  One of the caste members, Nikki, has recently graduated from interior design school.  After years as a nurse, she's contemplating making the jump into a career as an interior designer.  Her reasons for this are something that I'm sure will be explored on the MTV show.  Ultimately she would like to focus on healthcare design but, being so new to the industry, she's open to any and all design related experiences.

Nikki came to intern for Cole Barnett Interiors for the day and help with an install I was working on in south Orange County.  I thought it was a perfect day for her to see the real-world side of design that is never taught in a classroom.  The fun stuff that some interns call the grunt placing furniture, building furniture, cleaning floors and windows, and cutting off tags.  I can always use an extra set of hands so I was thrilled to have Nikki along for the day.
