Live Chat, Blogs, Events & More Benefit Online Nurse Community
SAN DIEGO, Dec. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Web sites specifically designed for business professionals to connect with their peers are growing in popularity across the Internet. Now there's a Web site rising to the top, designed exclusively for nursing professionals and nursing students seeking to connect and network with their peers. NurseConnect (http://www.nurseconnect.com) is a user-friendly site for collaboration, sharing of ideas and recommendations, and a way to build professional camaraderie.
Visitors can take a 60-second site tour, browse features or join this unique online community to begin sharing and networking with nurses across the United States and the world. Members can chat in real time, review and recommend facilities and schools, get professional advice, and even find a new nursing job-all from the comfort of their own home or school.
NurseConnect, which is already more than 4,100 members strong, launched
several new features last week.
Nurses and students can now enjoy these additional member benefits:
-- Nursing blogs - Professionals cover current issues and invite nurses
to share comments;
-- Real-time chat - Nurses connect and talk to their peers while online;
-- Event listings across the U.S. - Nurses can find where they want to
work and visit;
-- More ways to share opinions, rate and review thousands of facilities,
articles, schools and more;
-- Personalized homepages - Nurses now have access to others with similar
career preferences, are able to see jobs in their area, link to
colleagues and manage their own site favorites.
"NurseConnect launched a few months ago and right away we sought input from the community about how they would like to see the site grow and what features were important to them," explained Joanne Oelkers, NurseConnect.com Online Community Manager. "The site's members spoke and we listened by providing a streamlined service, with improved access to connect to and chat in real-time with nursing colleagues, personalized content and reminders, blogs on topics important to today's nurses and students, events by major city, along with a more robust job search. We're excited about how current and new nurse members will embrace these innovative features and grow their community."
In addition to the new features, NurseConnect.com also boasts nursing forums, a resource and career center with salary tools, nursing-related news and feature articles, a robust database of nursing jobs, information on city and state destinations, and ways to save and manage connections, site favorites and more.
