The Nurses Lounge is about keeping you updated on your local nursing profession and the organizations and colleagues that matter most to you!
As a professional network for nurses the Nurses Lounge has been designed as a more efficient way for organizations to distribute news and information directly to their members and/or nurses interested in them.
Nurses Lounge provides members with 75 local Metro/State Lounges. These Lounges serve as aggregators of information from local nursing organizations. You can also ask questions or comment on posts created by local nursing schools, nurse organizations, employers and other professionals.
As a member of the Nurses Lounge, you can join Lounges created by nursing schools, nurse organizations, and nurse employers that you are affiliated with. Lounges will update you via email when new posts are created such as events, announcements and new discussions. (Associations and Schools can create a lounge for FREE)
You can also add other members to your personal network. Select their profile picture and click the link that says 'Add persons name to network'. Once they are in your network you will see their name on your My Home Page. The larger their name is the more active they have been recently.
Your "My Home" Page gives you a quick overview of what's happening in your network and around the site. You can view recent activity on your posts, see the latest posts from your Lounges, and get highlights of upcoming events.
Help Spread the Word!
Networks become more valuable to all members and organizations as membership grows. Our network is easy to use and solves many of the communication problems organizations are faced with while providing a way to keep separation between your social and professional life and in contact with your local nursing profession. As such, after you have completed your profile, please take a quick minute to invite 5 colleagues into your network in the Nurses Lounge or an association that you belong to struggling to maintain communications with their members. They will be very appreciative!
The "Invite a Colleague" link is located in the main menu bar at the top of each page.
