Capella University has organized an incredible LIVE Google Hangout where social media’s top nurse contributors, as well as Mayo Clinic’s Center of Social Media director will come together to talk about social media and what it means for nurses. The live event, which will take place on April 30th, 2015 at 2pm ET, will give nurses practical advice for living in a world saturated with social media.
I am very excited about being a part of this event because I know first hand that nurses benefit from social media and how it can improve their personal and professional lives when they use it properly. There are so many talented nurse bloggers and social media personalities that provide a complex and needed support system for nurses online. Social media can help nurses grow in the nursing profession by leaps and bounds and I thrilled to have an opportunity to talk about this with the top nurses on social media.

Meet Nursing’s Social Media Super Stars
Katie Duke, MSN RN AGACNP-BC was born and raised in St. Louis, MO, and lives and works in NYC. An RN for over 12 years, she recently completed her MSN at Columbia University in the City of New York, and is on a mission to become THE public figure for nursing. Duke values the imperative role nurses play in healthcare delivery and recognized a void within the industry for an intelligent, relatable, and real healthcare personality representing nurses. Nurses have long been portrayed in the media and on television as docile, unintelligent, unprofessional, sexual objects often trailing behind physicians, and Duke has set out to change this perspective. As a main cast member on the the award winning NY MED on ABC, and NY ER on the Oprah Winfrey Network and Discovery Health Channels, Duke is able to reach millions every week with her powerful and knowledgeable skill and work ethic, and very interactive and positive presence on social media. She has a weekly YouTube series, “the Katie Duke Show” that is on one of the fastest growing youTube channels; ScrubsBeat. The Duke serves as a public speaker, traveling the US and speaking at nursing schools, commencements, pinnings, conferences, and conventions. She is a brand spokesperson, resource, and role model for not only the nursing profession, but also for healthcare and lifestyle enthusiasts throughout the nation. As an experienced and practicing ER Nurse in NYC, she encourages others to be their best, and her motto is to “deal with it”.
Kati Kleber: I have worked as a bedside nurse for 4.5 years; two of which in a cardiac stepdown unit and 2.5 years in a neurosciences intensive care unit. I am the chair of the shared governance coordinating council. I am also a heavily involved nurse on social media across various social media outlets, including my own blog. I have published a book, Becoming Nursey, which has been positively reviewed by the American Association of Critical Care Nurses.
