A Multi Media Nurses Day

Sunday 12th May was International Nurses Day and the online #nursecommunity came together and shared.  The nursing community has gone from one tweeting nurse to over 6000 proud and passionate nurses and this pride and passion shone through on Sunday.  Now I could go on … or I could just show you what happened … below are a series of links showing how the community came together and what they shared…. enjoy !

International Nurses Day 2013 – Nurses Share Their Personal Nursing Histories

All of the pictures, blogs and chats were collated on a WeNurses Pinterest board



This wonderful event shows not only the passion and pride that nurses have but also how and why the community are engaging and using social media to help them to connect with one another.  International Nurses Day became not only an international event this year but also a multi media event – well done to all those who took part and keep sharing.
