Sociable nursing – social media in the classroom #futureMHN

Sociable nursing – social media in the classroom #futureMHN


Today @VanessLGarrity and I did a session with second year mental health nursing students on the topic of social media and nursing. We covered themes such as professional development and clinical practice.

Here is a storify of the tweets that we encouraged using the hashtag #futureMHN in the lead up to, during and after the session. We managed to get a few students tweeting and really appreciated all the retweets and input from nurses and other supportive tweeps who were following the discussion:

We used a Prezi to deliver the session and you can find it here:

We were particularly struck by the extent to which social media, and its implications, aren’t yet being included in nurse training or in practice – we’re sure this will change over time we hope we’ve made a small contribution to moving things forward today.
