Social media can do many wonderful things for nurses. Even Katie has used social media to catapult herself as a personal brand and grow a huge following online. But it can also have big, sometimes unforeseen consequences, even for bold nurses who are on reality shows.

Father’s Day is just around the corner, which often brings about fond memories of fishing trips and little league. However, some Americans do not have a memory for times spent with their father. This issue isn’t experienced by a small sector of the population.

The practice of nursing is ever-changing. There are always new guidelines and regulations that nurses are asked to adhere to, often with little information to accompany it. Nurses sometimes feel like they are just surviving because they are being asked to take on new challenges and aren’t completely sure of themselves.

If you are a nurse then hopefully the hospital or healthcare organization you work for has decided to honor you and all the hard work you do. But we here at The Nerdy Nurse think you deserve a little more this year. I’m sure Florence Nightingale would be impressed with how far we’ve come, but we all know how far we have to go. In some ways nurses are honored everyday, but in many ways we are not. I’m a nurse and I appreciate what other nurse’s do so I reached out to my nursing friends and put together this giveaway.
