This article explains the steps you need to take to apply Nursing schools, I wish I had read this earlier in my high school life because it explains that you need to take Physcology and four years of english. Now that I am in my senior year, it is too late to take some of those classes. But I can take those classes during college and then apply to the Nursing Schools.

This website gives you great information on what you can do while still in high school so it looks good when you're applying to nursing schools.

Marisol Sanchez's curator insight, April 11, 2014 3:57 AM

This information is very useful in learning how to apply to nursing school, but also ways to increase your chances of getting in. The first step that is needed is to be organized and prepared. Tips that are useful when getting into a nursing school is to finish prerequisites as much as you can in high school. Later, gain experience in the field, compare nursing schools, avoid the waiting list, and to apply early.

Better Thinking, Together: Rx for Growth: Healthcare + Social Media

Better Thinking, Together: Rx for Growth: Healthcare + Social Media | senior seminar | Scoop.it

Fact: Looking for health information is the third most popular online activity.

Fact: Two-thirds of internet users look for information on a specific disease or medical condition.

Fact: The day that Facebook altered profile pages to allow members to specify their organ donor-status, 13,054 people registered to be organ donors online in the United States, a 21-fold increase over the daily average of 616 registrations.

Social media and healthcare go along together like peanut butter & jelly. People want to find healthcare information easily. They want to connect with others who share their situation. Before the doctor visit, people want to be aware of their combined symptoms and the conditions possibly connected to them. And while self-diagnosing has never been a reliable method, internet users continue to browse the web for answers.

As a healthcare provider, relaying information and being easily accessible to your patients besides a scheduled appointment is vitally important. It’s something Mayo Clinic has known for years – and why they’ve led the healthcare revolution on social media… to the tune of 772,000 Twitter followers, 498,252 likes on Facebook, with regular YouTube content publishing and additional podcasts and blog posts.


What does it all mean to you?


It’s time to dip a toe into social media. While this doesn’t mean you have to start out huge – Mayo Clinic-style – the benefits associated with an online presence are too valuable not to connect and engage with your patients and community. There is a vast selection of trending social media tools for you to choose from. Besides the classic methods like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, opportunities abound. Instagram, Snapchat, StumbleUpon, Pinterest and Reddit are just five of the creative platforms that businesses and healthcare facilities are beginning to use to connect with their community.

 Instagram: Share photos and short videos online with applied digital filters. Hashtags are used to sort postings.Snapchat: Similar to Instagram, this platform is used to share pictures and short videos. Media is not posted publicly, instead it is shared with contacts for a set time limit.StumbleUpon: Classified as a discovery engine (a type of search engine). Users select interests and rate the websites, photos and videos that appear each time the user "stumbles." Pages with high ratings are shared with like-minded individuals.Pinterest: Users create and share boards with various pinned items such as websites, pages, etc. Boards can be used to develop projects or store pictures.Reddit: Community member-driven news website. Members can submit content, and member votes determine the ranking and position of content within the site.


At the minimum, it is vital for healthcare providers to have an active Twitter account and/or a Facebook page for their patients to connect with.

Stories of Facebook engagement and intervention are everywhere. From the nurse who found out about a patient’s struggle with the anniversary of the day his friend died in his arms, to the trauma teams who were better prepared after learning of the Boston bombings on Facebook.

In fact, Facebook itself is exploring the possibilities of leading online support communities, where Facebook users suffering from the same condition could share stories, commiserate and in theory, improve their quality of life. Whether you choose to go that far – or simply share your thoughts and expertise or provide an avenue for conversation – your patients will find a comfort level when they find you on social media (36% of internet users look online for information about hospitals or other medical facilities). 

Social media is not going away. Younger generations who grew up with the internet and social media platforms are now reaching the age of decision about their own healthcare providers. 89% of 18-29 year olds use social media. Being easily accessible to those potential patients on the platforms they use can take you the distance.

However it may develop, the social media-healthcare relationship is just beginning. The Healthcare Hashtag Project tracks where healthcare conversations take place, and when we last checked, healthcare social media buzzed to the tune of 629 million tweets and 11 million topics.

This article is giving people that are becoming a nurse, tips. The tip that struck me was "caffiene is your friend" because when you become a nurse you are going to work long shifts and even do over night shifts. I would have to get used to that since I am used to sleeping during the night.

This article provides very good information for accredited, approved programs to earn your degree in nursing. There are many technical schools, and community colleges that are approved. For example, the nearest school for me is Everett Community College. There are only 4 universities that are approved.
