Social media and nursing Tweetchat 3: Exploring the positive impact that social media is having on nurses and nursing 


Over the month of May WeNurses will be exploring social media and nursing.  We want start to understand the relationship that nurses and nursing has with social media and the impact that this is having so throughout May we will be holding tweetchats, sharing blogs, infographics and podcasts and running polls to really scrutinise where social media and nursing is.


We want to consider two main areas:


The impact that nurses & nursing are having on social media 


And 


The impact that social media is having on nurses & nursing


In each of these areas we want to explore  the positive impact but also explore the challenges we have faced and how we have overcome them.


This tweetchat will be exploring the positive impact that social media is having on nurses & nursing and will address the following questions: 


What are your first thoughts around how social media has had a positive impact on nurses? 


How has social media had a positive impact on how you connect with/ understand the people you care for? 


How has social media had a positive impact on your professional development? 


How has social media had a positive impact on your own health and well-being ? 


How has social media had a positive impact on how you see / feel about nursing?

20 May 2021 20:07
Social media has had a huge positive effect on me as a nurse .... increase in knowledge, confidence levels, and an effect on how i look after my own health and wellbeing #WeNurses https://twitter.com/WeNurses/status/1395455568547127297

@WeNurses Social media has connected nurses from across disciplines and the world, and it’s helped us understand more and in more ways #wenurses

@WeNurses Social media has had a really positive impact on me as a nurse. I have met lots of amazing people and through that have had lots of opportunities I would have of had otherwise #WeNurses
@nurseAdvance
20 May 2021 20:09
@WeNurses It brings us into conversation with the people we care for. If we're not here on social media, others with little expertise have free rein to sling opinions without challenge! #WeNurses

@AgencyNurse So important to look after your own health and wellbeing isn't it Teresa #WeNurses
@Anna_Chick
20 May 2021 20:11
@WeNurses It’s changed my entire outlook of nursing and opened my eyes to so much. I realised as soon as I started on social media that it was an educator and a game changer #wenurses
@AgencyNurse
20 May 2021 20:11
@nurseAdvance @WeNurses i think this is really important ... in the past i have thought that we have been reluctant to join 'the conversation' with the people we care for .. this is changing and is good to see #WeNurses
@AgencyNurse
20 May 2021 20:12
@swan_anthony absolutely ... and it;s something we often put to the bottom of the pile as nurses #WeNurses

@WeNurses I think there are lot of proactive patient/ relative groups on Twitter sharing experiences and raising awareness of campaigns for example @DebHazeldine and @PaulaMc007 #wenurses other media is short lived but social media allows it be current all the time
@WeNurses
20 May 2021 20:25
QUESTION 3 How has social media had a positive impact on nurses professional development? #WeNurses https://t.co/DGfmwboKg6
@firogers3
20 May 2021 20:25
@WeNurses Social media provides opportunities for learning development and sharing good practice. Questions can be asked, answers can be found, research can be promoted..... #WeNurses
@AgencyNurse
20 May 2021 20:27
@WeNurses the last time i revalidated i used lots of learning that took place on social media ... there is so much from informal exchanges on twitter to YouTube videos ... and everything else in between #WeNurses
@PUNC14
20 May 2021 20:27
@WeNurses I am late to the party but think that social media channels the thoughts and beliefs we have about our experiences..so they can be positive, and sometimes less so #WeNurses
@hannahlames1
20 May 2021 20:27
@WeNurses Quick sharing of resources, information For example during COVID so much advice and clinical information being shared to help professionals learn in this novel situation #wenurses
@swan_anthony
20 May 2021 20:27
All the learning which is online, tweetchats, general conversations with other nurses I think has massively increased professional development in the profession. It definitely has for me since qualifying and as a student #WeNurses https://twitter.com/WeNurses/status/1395460580258066433
@AgencyNurse
20 May 2021 20:28
@firogers3 @WeNurses and loads of research shared on here ... and takes place on here ... the very latest practice developments at your finger tips #WeNurses
@hannahlames1
20 May 2021 20:28
@WeNurses I am also partial to pathophysiology quiz ?? there's a lot more potential for Twitter as part of blended learning #wenurses
@AgencyNurse
20 May 2021 20:29
Yes this >> So much rapidly changing guidance and practice ... social media has helped to make sense of it all #WeNurses https://twitter.com/hannahlames1/status/1395461212222152707
@SotonMax
20 May 2021 20:29
Is this a deliberate ploy to privatise the healthcare labour market? No pensions, no sick pay, no maternity - maybe it's worth paying the extra cash to agencies in the short term... #WeNurses #NurseTwitter #RCNNRN https://twitter.com/SotonMax/status/1395094737363906572
@PUNC14
20 May 2021 20:29
For me personally ( Meriel) and for those who use it thoughtfully and proactively I think it has an immense impact. I have lost count of the times it has challenged entrenched thinking or opened new avenues of learning #WeNurses https://twitter.com/WeNurses/status/1395460580258066433

@WeNurses There are opportunities that may not be possible face to face or be afforded. The Twitter community of nursing and nurses is vast - I’m sure there must be every specialty of nursing - perhaps for @Wenurses to explore? ?? #Wenurses

#WeNurses It is also much more than a single option, through the theory of connectivism an underpinning theory explains the utility of accusing information through connections with multiple others- learners and experts alike #WeNurses https://twitter.com/PUNC14/status/1395461679958433793

I agree but encourage engaged not enraged Being emotionally connected is human need to communicate effectively without losing the argument to emotive outbursts. This is detrimental as may lose context and if anger dissipates that the argument does not stand- it should #WeNurses https://twitter.com/WeNurses/status/1395466473355816961
