& has memory. Its terrific for documenting #RNchat
Thu Jan 20 18:17:51 PST 2011

Aggiern95 What is camtasia? #RNChat

Thu Jan 20 18:17:52 PST 2011

thebusynurse T1 - it's old school tech, but "nurse on a stick" seems to be rather popular as you can never
get one when you really need one! #RNchat
Thu Jan 20 18:17:53 PST 2011

nurseeducator T1 I love Snag it for screen captures and voice overs. Lately enjoying the Flip HD
easy to use! Use them in Staff Development #rnchat
Thu Jan 20 18:17:53 PST 2011

Safety4Nurses @nurseeducator @SSannerPhDRN Camtasia gives a polished professional finished product!

Thu Jan 20 18:17:55 PST 2011

Thu Jan 20 18:18:10 PST 2011

Geek2Nurse T1 Of course couldn't live w/o my iPhone. Even though it insists "T1" should be "U2."
Thu Jan 20 18:18:14 PST 2011
PamelaKline @Aggiern95 I'm with you on that. I love my Droid and all the APPS!! #RNChat

Thu Jan 20 18:18:18 PST 2011

onlinenursing T1 - #RNChat - Clinic - EMR (practice partner brand - very easy to use/read) - College -
'JING' - free screen capture software
Thu Jan 20 18:18:41 PST 2011

cmizer17 My Fav Tech Thing At Work Is The Hand Held Bar Code Scanners We Use 4 Meds & Pt
Verification #RNChat
Thu Jan 20 18:18:45 PST 2011

holisticnurses #RNChat Also our scheduling system is cool. I can schedule a #nurse to see a pt in the eve
and he/she ALSO sees the #EMR of the pt. T1
Thu Jan 20 18:18:55 PST 2011

Aggiern95 T1 the other thing I like is iClickers in the classroom. You can get instant feedback from the
students #RNChat
Thu Jan 20 18:18:56 PST 2011

nurseeducator @NursingCenter T1 Camtasia is good for voicing over ppt and converting into videos #rnchat
Thu Jan 20 18:19:14 PST 2011

Geek2Nurse @Safety4Nurses T1 And hover mats! Have always wanted to take one of those down into the
basement hallways... :) #RNchat
Thu Jan 20 18:19:58 PST 2011

Safety4Nurses @cmizer17 Bar code scanners remind me of my days working in a grocery store and they
are they greatest for patient safety! #RNCHAT
Thu Jan 20 18:20:00 PST 2011

nowhitecaps @Aggiern95 We use those - very very cool stuff. Profs use them to gauge understanding of
material in real-time. #RNChat

onlinenursing T1 - What if we could use something like "dragon" & chart via speaking? #RNChat - that
would ROCK! (talk 2 pt. & chart)
Thu Jan 20 18:26:56 PST 2011
PamelaKline @onlinenursing that's good to know. I wondered if it worked! #RNChat
Thu Jan 20 18:27:01 PST 2011

Thu Jan 20 18:28:29 PST 2011

Safety4Nurses @onlinenursing great idea to use Dragon for charting! Staff would love it! #RNCHAT
Thu Jan 20 18:28:29 PST 2011

trick! #RNChat

Geek2Nurse T1 @SSannerPhDRN @westr @nowhitecaps I upgraded to the paid version of Evernote--

text search in PDFs & images makes it invaluable. #RNchat

Safety4Nurses @rnchat Great topic! No my hospital's legal department is working on a SM policy!

Thu Jan 20 18:35:23 PST 2011

nowhitecaps T2 Not sure about the hosp, but the school does. Absolutely no discussion of clinical
experiences, not evn "I had a good day today." #RNChat
Thu Jan 20 18:35:55 PST 2011

EllenRichter T2 My hospital needs to get "with it" in the social media arena. Our rules are: block all social
media sites from the whole campus #RNchat
Thu Jan 20 18:36:48 PST 2011

Safety4Nurses @nowhitecaps Wow! Not even "I had a good day"!! strict but that is good #RNCHAT
Thu Jan 20 18:37:15 PST 2011

work related. I use FB 4 my department #rnchat

PamelaKline @EllenRichter I agree with you, that's definitely not the way to address social media.
Thu Jan 20 18:38:04 PST 2011

lousy or good day. Thats not doing harm! :) #RNchat

Thu Jan 20 18:39:22 PST 2011

thebusynurse @EllenRichter that was the way it was at ALL the hospitals I did clinical at. Their thinking
must be: block it = it does not exist! #RNchat

nurseeducator @EllenRichter T2 Is your institution open to discussion if you went through the chain of

Aggiern95 T2 i am not sure if there is a policy in place but I also don't work in a hospital #RNChat

EllenRichter T2 I think facilities fear that all the health care providers will be busy updating their SoMe
sites instead of patient care...sigh #RNchat

everything for me! no headaches & saves time. #RNChat

Thu Jan 20 18:41:14 PST 2011

SSannerPhDRN T2 it's sometimes difficult to get on SoMe at the hospital b/c of the firewall protection.

nurseeducator @SusanNiemeierRN read that voice interface is good from an ergonomic stance #rnchat
Thu Jan 20 18:41:26 PST 2011

Safety4Nurses @EllenRichter I agree that facilities feel staff will waste time on SM at work but what about
afterhours..need rules #RNCHAT
