#RNChat Checking You Guys Out Tonite I'm A Fairly New Grad in North East
cmizer17 Ohio
nursincoins A twitter arant for nursina would aet much attention - areat idea. #RNchat
I won't add another topic, I'll just let this flow 'cuz it's good. Only thing to add:
rnchat feel free to suqcest nurses you've met here #RNchat
@nursingpins At my facility, all social media sites are blocked on the internet
Ellen Richter & prohibited from use. We can cet in trouble for it #RNchat
@cmizer17 Welcome! You should look for our tweets each week & join in.
Ellen Richter Our days & times vary so keep an eye out! :) #RNchat
nursinqoins I think Twitter for nurses is on the verne of catchino on like fire - #RNchat
@philbaumann here here, @rapinedape is awesome! I just thought I would say
rdifraser hello before headlno out for then niuht, Have a oreat #RNchat !
@rnchat There isnt enough room to tweet the names of every nurse I've met
Ellen Richter thru this medium! Its unreal. Hundreds! #RNchat
RT @nursingpins: A twitter grant for nursing would get much attention - great
sharlnostrenqth idea. # RNchat
PinkyPhee I@philbaumann Hello everyone! First time joining the chat © #RNchat
@nurseeducator hmmm. I can think of some pharma grants that would pick it
lioniwatson UP with niche questions - pain rnanacernent. etc. #rnchat
philbaumann @rdifraser Thanks, Robert! Eniov your nlqht!l #RNchat
@EllenRichter I know - many blocked here - once the hospitals understand sm -
nursinonins hopefully ed bennett wisdom will help. #RNchat

Raolnedaoe #RNchat @PinkyPhee Hi there GF! Welcome! You never stopped by before? You are in the
Ellen Richter right spot, then! Today we are celebrating 1 year BD! #RNchat
@nurseeducator I can completely see writing it into a large grant pursued by
lioniwatson @NurseOEP. We're all abt innovating CNE. #rnchat
@JoeCascio Hi! I think my facility is fearful people will spend social media time
Ellen Richter chit-chatting instead of professionally growing. #RNchat
@nurseeducator not too many peer reviewers on Twitter, so will have to explain
lioniwatson the innovation and impact well. #rnchat
I think the first nurses I found on Twitter were @rdjfraser @bthenextstep &
rnchat @pixelrn - The list has arown considerablv in short time #RNchat
#RNchat I Twist Being a New Grad Into a Positive At Interviews: I Don't Have
cmizer17 Bad Habits, U Can Mold Me, Still In a Learning Mode
@joniwatson are you thinking small or large grants? STII, NLN site as they have
nurseeducator small tech grants that have a research angle #rnchat
Hospital here that did block - then didn't - Some abuse at first - then new wore
nursincpins off and peer pressure controlled excessive use. #RNchat
RT @EllenRichter: @rnchat There isnt enough room to tweet the names of every
lioniwatson nurse I've met thru this medium! Its unreal. #RNchat
philbaumann @PinkvPhee Great to seeva! :) #RNchat
sharinastrenath @rdifraser Eniov your niaht!! #RNchat
@rnchat The very first nurses I found on twitter were @AbbieCitron @BonnieRN
Ellen Richter @vpmedical @jrobinsonRN @bthenextstep & @motherionesrn #RNchat
nursincpins Should talk to RWJF - may be receptive to a grant? #RNchat
@RNchat Media blocked @ my facility too. I don't invite other nurses, cuz I don't
nursekris99 want them to find me on here! #RNChat
@RNchat Truth is, I got a Twitter acct because it was the only thing not blocked
nursekris99 at work! #RNChat
Totally agree with @EllenRichter - it's a long list, and growing. My calc: 19,000

@EllenRichter was fun - I have seen 1st hand how twitter can get patients -
nursincpins they are slowly learnlnq. #RNchat
RT @nursingpins: 1 hosp here did not understand twitter - so I tweeted for

cmizer17 Any School Nurses On Here? #RNchat
Great chat tonight! Good night to all of the participants! Great birthday bash for
Ellen Richter #RNchat
@EllenRichter It is - and opportunity for nurses who know social media - was
nurslnonlns offered a tob after I explained it to one- #RNchat
@cmizer17 I'm jealous! I have only reviewed EMR charts for legal cases. In my
Ellen Richter career, I only use oaoer. Bummer. Cant wait to switch #RNchat
OK, we'll start wrapping up in a few moments. Give us your parting thoughts!
rnchat #RNchat
parting thought - if your pts. Hct drops from the 30's to the teens - make
nurslnqplns lvourself a note to mention it in report. #RNchat
@EllenRichter I agree with U, hoping #RNchat will become a respected social
Raolnedaoe media qrouo that hospitals will allow staff to attend from work!
@rnchat My parting thought? We should write a weekly #RNchat blog with
Ellen Richter streams of thouchts by nurses about nurslnq. I think it would be fun!
#RNchat The Switch To EMRs NEED To Be Facilities Top Priority along WI Dr
cmizer17 Order Entry! Saves Time &amo; Less Errors!
nurslnuolns @EllenRichter Excellent idea Ellen. #RNchat Thanks! @Rapinedape I think eventually folks will understand social media
Ellen Richter & its link to health care. Then the sky will be the limit! #RNchat
@EllenRichter Agree! ... Should open the blog to other authors! http://RNchat.
rnchat oro #rnchat
nursincpins @rnchat qood idea - could have commentary after chats. #RNchat
Well, running a #RNchat blog could be a side effort by some of us! @rnchat
Ellen Richter & @nursinopins we can chat about that! :)
