Empower. Encourage. Explore. Founded on these principles in October 2007, NurseTogether caters to the needs of the nursing community. Through content and applications, we offer encouragement for nurses and their unique lifestyle, empower nurses in their professional development and provide opportunities to explore their careers.
Articles by our community of contributors put the spotlight on education, career and lifestyle. Applications, such as Education Search Engine and Ratings and Reviews, empower members. Our robust and diverse communications options such as our pages and discussions help nurses make connections with friends and colleagues around the world.
From our beginning more than five years ago, we have provided a voice and gathering place for the nursing community. Today NurseTogether reaches an audience of nearly 250,000 visitors every month.
Articles from our experts deal with the unique lifestyle concerns of nurses. Our contributors tackle issues that include work-life balance, such as time management; beauty and fashion, such as uniforms and scrubs; health and fitness, such as meals and dieting, exercise and weight loss; technology and apps for nurses; and relationships, such as dealing with coworkers, family, friends.
For those seeking information, help or guidance on their career, our writers make their expertise available. NurseTogether community members will find stories that address a number of topics that include lateral violence, such as nurse bullying and “Why nurses eat their young”; conflict resolution such as how to work with difficult physicians, patients, and nursing managers; compassion fatigue and burn out; the market for nurses, such as hospitals not hiring new nursing grads, and job search advice; and specialties, such as nurse practitioners, nurse anesthetists and case managers.
Even the student nurse or the education seeker has much to look forward to on our site. Our authors come from a vast array of backgrounds and touch on subjects that include LPN programs and their continued relevance; doctorate of nursing, which includes the dispute between DNs and MDs; the need for more education for career advancement; becoming a nurse, such as choosing the right nursing school, and study tips; online education for nurses; and licensure and exams.
