The 31-year-old registered nurse is also a certified personal trainer, bikini pro, best-selling author and bikini model. Since launching her fitness empire, Drain has amassed over 3.7 million Instagram followers, as well as a successful training program and numerous meal guides. Her Instagram success (@laurendrainfit) has earned her the title of "World's Hottest Nurse."
But she's not "just a model," she asserts.
"I have held full-time jobs in healthcare since the age of 16, and have been a cardiac registered nurse for over 8 years - 5 of which I spent working full-time night shifts, while also working a second nursing job per-diem. I have experience in an intermediate ICU setting (the ICU step-down), and have been a charge nurse for the last several years while I worked every floor of the hospital. I can help run a code, teach a patient about their medications, and work life-sustaining equipment. I am not "just a model," she writes in her online biography.

Be your own best version of you. The only secret to it is: you just have to start. Break through the mold of settling. Break through the monotony of life and challenge yourself to get better. Break free of the excuses you and society tells you: that it's too hard or that it's not fun. It's not too hard and it is fun! You won't regret becoming a better version of yourself mentally and physically. You will regret not trying or giving up.

BACK TO SLIDE
Years ago, after being overworked in the hospital, Drain decided to make a major change.
"I wanted to be a healthy, fit, strong, confident woman, actively preventing disease instead of treating everything with pills and medication," she explained according to The Sun. "I wanted to change my life for the better and I wanted to help others before they lost control of their health too."
So she took on a paleo diet, entered a number of bikini competitions, and worked her way up. The now-married Drain credits hard work to her lifestyle change, hoping to inspire others as she moves forward.
She said, "After eight years in professional healthcare, I have never seen a natural athlete stuck in a terrible health crisis. There's a reason for that: fit, active lifestyles reduce the risk of disease and promote overall wellness," maintained The Sun.
But her life wasn't all that easy. Drain grew up in "the most hated cult in America," the Westboro Baptist Church. She was later ex-communicated from her family and siblings because of nonconformance.
"I was indoctrinated into the cult as a child but was later banished due to nonconformance. Sent to a motel room with nothing more than a suitcase, I was forbidden from all forms of communication with my siblings and family members. We have not spoken since. I've had to rebuild my entire life while looking through the hourglass at the family and friends I once had," she explained on her website at www.laurendrain.com.

Do you believe in self love?💗 I think this is so important, especially nowadays with all this social media who can make an impression that everyone else is flawless. Self love is so much more than just looks, it's how you are as a person, how you act towards other people, how you treat other people and how you live your life. Are you happy with the choices you make? Are you healthy? Do you take care of yourself? Do you LOVE yourself?💗
I do. I don't need to be the prettiest, smartest or strongest in the world. That's not my goal. My goal is to be a kind person, to inspire people to love themselves, my goal is to be happy, healthy and to live the life I want.
-And of course I have bad days to, I'm human😉
#selflove #bereal #beyou #youaregoodenough

No one is me and that is my power ♥️
Til alle fine følgerene mine der ute: eg vil dela någen tanker med dåkke. Eg får mange meldinger og kommentarer på at eg e perfekt/lever et perfekt liv. Det vil eg bare avkrefte med et stort NEI! Eg er langt ifrå perfekt og lever ikkje någe perfekt liv. Eg har dårlige dager og kjipe ting i livet mitt som alle andre. Nå ska det sies at eg stort sett har det veldig fint og eg har all grunn te å smile om dagen. Men eg vil få fram viktigheten med å være fornøyd med det man har og det å kunne fokusere på det positive og ikkje bli for opptatt av utseende. (Det e tross alt ikkje det viktigste i livet) Fokuser på det som gjør hjertet ditt glad! -Spre kjærlighet, gi komplimenter, smil, le, ta sjangser og lev livet! Til alle jenter/kvinner der ute: du er kul nok, pen nok, tynn nok og definitivt bra nok! ♥️ Ønske alle ein heilt fantastisk onsdag, fordi du fortjene det!🤗✨ #jentersomheierpåjenter #uperfektperfekt #branok

I'm a full time firefighter. This is my job and I'm so proud of that. Because this job didn't come easy. I worked so hard for this. It took sweat, tears and dedication to reach this goal. Years of studying, training and preparation. I could have given up, I could have listen to the people who told me I couldn't. But I didn't quit. I believed in myself and my inner strength. For that I am proud♥️👩🏼🚒 #nevergiveuponyourdreams #yesyoucan #beliveinyourself #femalefirefighter #dedication #worldsbestjob 📷@kaoticpanic

When life treats you good🍾💦 ...I'm gonna eat some chocolate now👅 In between busy days with work and hard training it's so important to take some days off, to relax and recharge your batteries.
