My Picks: 10 Best Nursing Blogs

In the past year, I have read a lot of nursing blogs, some very good, a few very bad, and covering all points between. As a way to mark the first anniversary of this blog, and something which I intend to become an annual event, I thought I might return a little of the recognition you, my nurse colleagues (and I hope, friends) have given me.

It was a pretty hard deciding who my favourites were. There are many superlative blogs, and undoubtedly I have only seen a fraction of them. The choices are purely subjective and idiosyncratic. I employed no elaborate scoring system to objectify my choices, but I did keep in mind factors of readability, interest/topicality/aptness/etc., and regularity of posting, only one of which, in any case could be realistically measured.

In no particular order, my choices for the best nursing blogs:

My personal blogmother.

Thoughtful and well-written; unfortunately on summer holiday, and waiting for his return.

Comics are art, and newly-graduated Will is an artist.

No verbal filter, she says, but hugely entertaining, thoughtful and readable nonetheless.

Where art meets healing, along (as a bonus) a sister blog, JParadisi RN’s Blog

Flat out, the best written.

Writing his way through nursing school; “Just me,” he says, and my Y chromosome afloat on the estrogen ocean. . .”

Our blogs should all look so good. Or be so informative and interesting.

Rob Fraser: “The goal of this website is to share ideas of research, innovation and leadership with nurses.”

Terrific, beautifully written stories: on a (hopefully) brief hiatus.

    Clearly I’m the slow one of the bunch, but hopefully that is because I’ve been on dial up for the last two months. Thanks for the mention on the list, of all the awards or prizes to get, recognition from someone you respect is worth more than any cheque.

    Wow, great post and blog. I know theres no way I will make this list with my blog right now :/, however I am working on it day by day and I hope to one day be there. It is so great to see the community of second career nurses on the internet. I have just recently graduated from an accelerated MSN program and am looking forward to starting my career in nursing. I think sites like this are so important to give both advice and support to aspiring nurses from all walks of life. During my time in school, I started a blog called The Second Degree Nurse in an effort to work towards this end: http://thesecondcareernurse.blogspot.com Please take a look at my site and tell me what you think and I will continue checking in to look for more updates from you!

    Sincerely,
    Dylan
