Is advancing in your nurse career on your New Year’s resolution to-do list? We thought so. That’s why we’ve put together a list, in no particular order, of nurse leader blogs for 2020 that we think can give you helpful career advice.
Dr. Rose Sherman, a professor at the College of Nursing at Florida Atlantic University, is the author of Emerging RN Leader blog. With more than 25 years of experience in leadership development, Dr. Sherman understands what it takes to be a nurse leader in today’s healthcare system. In her weekly blog posts, she shares her views on a wide range of topics, including nurse leadership strategies, best practices on conflict management, and professional development.
This blog is a great resource for nurses at every stage in their career. It’s full of advice from working nurses and practical insights into the demanding realm of healthcare. Nurse.com also offers its readers a place to network with others in the nursing profession, share their experiences in healthcare, and find new nurse jobs. Nurse.com publishes several times a week.
This list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the award-winning blog of the American Journal of Nursing. Off the Charts regularly publishes articles about healthcare news, nursing career advice, and inspiring stories from the frontlines of patient care. Contributors to the blog include AJN editors, working nurses, researchers, policy leaders, and sometimes even patients. It’s a must-read for all healthcare professionals.
If you subscribe to HCPro’s blog, Nurse Leader Insider, you’ll have access to expert advice from nurse leaders around the country as well as best practice strategies on nurse recruitment, retention, burnout, and leadership communication. The blog publishes a weekly newsletter which includes articles from several different nurse contributors.
This gem of a blog belongs to The American Association of Directors of Nursing Services (AADNS). The AADNS is a non-profit organization that strives to empower DONs/DNSs with tons of educational resources, updates on healthcare legislation, and a large network of healthcare professionals in long-term and post-acute care communities.
