In Appreciation: NurseConnect


You have probably seen this logo on a few nurse blogs lately.

Actually, you can see it on the sidebar right here at Emergiblog. NurseConnect has been an advertiser here on Emergiblog for awhile now.

I am writing this post in appreciation for their continued support (other than the fact that NurseConnect advertises on Emergiblog, I receive no additional compensation for this review/post).


NurseConnect is a nursing networking site and online community. It is run by AMN Healthcare, a travel nurse company.

The site offers articles, blogs, forums (by specialty) and educational/job resource information. I joined the Emergency Nursing forum and put a bio up today.

The site is clean, professional, easy to navigate and packed with info. You can review a facility (not anonymously) or even an entire city (I gave a big thumbs up to the San Francisco area!)

You never know what you are going to find, one link leads to many others – personally, I just discovered there are BSN – PhD programs out there. That was news to me!

You don’t have to be a travel nurse to enjoy the site! There are so many things to review and so many things to read – you can browse quickly for interesting topics or spend some time on specific topics. They have three bloggers, one of whom is the administrator of the site – enjoyed that blog immensely.

As with all forums, it’s the members that make it great, so don’t be shy! Visit the site and add your opinions to the mix!

And many thanks to NurseConnect for choosing Emergiblog!

    Kim, I’ve been talking about the post Bacc PhD program I’m in for a while now…

    They’ve been around for a while and more universities are developing programs. The one catch is that in some states you still have to have a masters in nursing to teach at the 4-year level. But that’s probably going to change as more people come out with BS to PhD doctorates.

    USF has a BSN to DNP program, which I think is the only program in California. There may be others in the works. UW-Milwaukee, Minnesota and Texas also have programs, but I don’t know if they’re online or in person.
