We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 10/12 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Janet Kennedy (@getsocialhealth) and Carol Bush (@TheSocialNurse) from the Healthcare Marketing Network (@HMNwriters) on the topic of “The Importance of Nurses in Healthcare”.
It’s time for #NursingNow. Nurses need to have a solid place at the table – from the C-Suite to Management, Entrepreneurs to Digital Health Innovators. In collaboration with the World Health Organization and the International Council of Nurses, Nursing Now aims to raise the status and profile of nursing globally. Nursing Now works to empower nurses to take their place at the heart of tackling 21st Century health challenges.
In this #HITMC chat, Carol Bush (@TheSocialNurse) and Janet Kennedy (@GetSocialHealth) will lead a discussion on Nurse Leadership and how every part of healthcare needs nurses to be present and actively involved.
