HeyScrubs was founded by Stephanie Corrales in 2017 with a simple goal in mind: to be a go-to resource for those interested in information related to the education, lifestyle, and career advancement of their chosen healthcare field.
Prior to starting the site, Stephanie worked as a managing administrator at a career college, with campuses throughout the US, that focused on various entry-level medical professions.
During that time she noticed a need for more information. Whether it was from an aspiring student inquiring where or how to start their education, a current student wondering what comes after classes end, or a graduate wanting to know more about advancing in their field, there always seemed to be more questions than readily available answers. So that is what we aim to provide here.
What exactly can you expect to find on our website?
We strive to constantly bring the most relevant and up-to-date information to our readers that includes:
- Information related to local and federal regulations regarding training, testing, and continuing education of a given healthcare field,

Stephanie Corrales is a first-generation college student and enrolled with the intention of completing 6+ years of schooling to eventually obtain a career in the mental health field.
She received a B.S. in Psychology and Neuroscience, and, recognizing the importance of pursuing an education and the difficulties that can be encountered on that path, Stephanie decided against continuing on to a doctoral degree.
Instead, she decided to enter the higher education field as a managing administrator to help others achieve their learning goals.
For over a decade, Stephanie’s experiences combined to include being a student at a community college, being a student and employee at a four-year university, and a director at a career college that focused largely on entry-level medical professions, giving her unique insight to the information pertinent to aspiring healthcare professionals.
That insight lead to the founding of HeyScrubs.
