Social Media Central
Nurses are busy, busy, busy people. Working long shifts, dealing with unruly patients, appeasing assertive doctors, cleaning up messes, the list goes on. Sometimes it helps to share how you’re feeling, hear from others who feel the same or simply just connect virtually and various social media can fill that need. Whether you use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn or Pinterest, Nurses Now updates you on what’s trending right NOW so you know who and what to like, retweet, regram, #hashtag and pin.
Introducing Nurse Lauren
Healthcare NOW Radio is pleased to introduce Nurse Lauren as our content contributor for Nurses NOW. Her passion for pediatrics led her to become a newborn/infant ICU nurse at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Nurse Lauren, RN is an avid gym goer and health advocate who enjoys improving the well being of others through fitness and nutrition.
Podcasts and Blogs
Sometimes taking the time to listen to a fellow nurse chat about and dig deep into topics that apply to your profession is just what the doctor ordered. Nurses NOW has reviewed a variety of podcasts and blogs with nurses in mind and we’ve made our recommendations. These shows will educate, inform, entertain and inspire you to take nursing school or your next shift to the next level.
