Professional and productive use of social media for nurses was the topic of conversation at an Australian College of Nurses/ James Cook University professional development event.
Scepticism about nursing students' use of social media at work prompted Cairns nurse Nicole Morris to come along to an Australian College of Nurses (ACN) education and networking event organised by James Cook University this month.
But she left with a determination to open a Twitter account as soon as she got home.
The workshop, The use of social media in nursing, was developed to help health professionals better understand how, when, where and why they might use social media platforms at work, and which ones.
Presentations were delivered by JCU lecturer Paul McNamara and JCU graduate and emerging nurse leader Evan Casella.
