Update from #TSNO2014

TSNO 2014 poster

I haven’t posted in quite some time, and I have been meaning to get back into the blog. This semester I have been so busy at school, but things are finally settling down. Over the weekend I attended the Texas School Nurses Organization conference, and lucky for me it was here in Houston! I really enjoy attending conferences. It’s always so interesting to me to hear from other people in my profession how they work, what challenges they have overcome, and what they like and/or don’t like about their careers. I always come away with new information, and new colleagues to keep in touch with. I presented a poster on School Nurses and Social Media while there, and helped coordinate the Twitter feed #TSNO2014. It was a great conference, and I am glad I got the opportunity to work with TSNO and run the Twitter feed during the conference. Now if I could just convince more School Nurses to Tweet!

 

New School Nurse Blog and ANIA info

Wow, the first month of school has been crazy busy. Between going back to work in my Elementary school clinic, my graduate school classes kicking back up, and my two kids in middle school, things have been hectic! I have not been blogging as much as I would like, but I will be back once things settle down in a few weeks.

In the meantime, check out a new blog from School Nurse BrennaQ. You can also follow Brenna here on Twitter.

And for my fellow Informatics Nurses out there, if you haven’t already, you should join the American Nursing Informatics Association, aka ANIA. They have some great resources on their website, including a vast online library where you can access CE offerings and archived webinars. They are also on social media, so check out their Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages. Social Media is a great avenue to connect with fellow Nurse colleagues!

Happy Friday friends!

What a wonderful experience, both personally and professionally! I will post more in the days to come, but I can’t say enough great things about my first NASN conference.

My school District sent a large group of Nurses to the conference, and we had a wonderful time connecting with each other, as well as networking with School Nurses from all over the country.

I’ll post more in the next week about the sessions I attended, and share some more thoughts and pics. Until then, have a great holiday weekend!
