Celebrate National Nurses Day with a #NurseITchat Tweet Chat

#NurseITchatNational Nurses Day is coming soon and this year I’m excited to announce that I will be participating in a tweet chat about IT for nurses.

Join Lisa Reichard, RN, BSN, Director of Community Relations (@NurseNadeen) and special guest Brittney Wilson, RN  (@TheNerdyNurse) for a National Nurses Day Tweet Chat on Tuesday, May 6th at 1pm ET. Use hashtag #NurseITchat to participate.

I’m thrilled to be able to work in nursing specialty that allows me to help nurses get the most out of technology. Nursing informatics allows me to combine my love of nursing with my love of technology into one nerdy little package. I am so passionate about helping nurses become more technology empowered that I wrote a book about it: The Nerdy Nurse’s Guide to Technology.

The tweet chat will help nurses get more information on using technology to improve the care they deliver and their careers. Check out the line up of questions:
