Nursing student blogs

Nursing students at Johns Hopkins School of Nursing are blogging their experiences as student nurses, and these are helping to recruit future students. "Prospective students can view a slice of real life as a Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing student through student "blogs" now posted on the School's website. In the blogs - website-based journals kept online for others to view - eight Hopkins nursing students write about all aspects of their lives, both on and off campus."

Thanks to Margaret Maag and her 'Nursing, Healthcare Informatics and Technology 2006' blog for alerting us to this - http://maagsblogs.blogspot.com/

The story is on Johns Hopkins School of Nursing website at:

- and the students' blogs can be accessed directly via: http://blogs.chatuniversity.com/jhuson/

A great development - does anyone know of anything remotely similar in the UK? - silly question, really, given the level of technology use and awareness among most UK Schools of Nursing. But maybe there are some nursing students out there doing similar themselves?

  • I am aware of one nursing student at my own institution who runs a blog at http://ukstudentnurse.blogspot.com/ but I'm sure there are others eg a mental health nurse at http://www.mentalnurse.org.uk/ & one hosted by staffnurse.com at http://www.staffnurse.com/nursing-news/student-nurse-diary.html
    & this one chilli and crackers from a student in Birmingham http://chilliandcrackers.blogspot.com/ & aother one from Hannah http://www.20six.co.uk/kendalh
