6 Pinterest Boards Every Nurse Should Follow

Do you return home after a long day of studying or working with patients, doctors and fellow nurses, and all you want to do is put your feet up and pin? If you’re quickly becoming addicted to Pinterest like the other 16 million monthly active registered users in this world, feel comfort knowing you’re not alone. The average Pinterest user spends about an hour to an hour and a half everyday on the third most popular social networking site behind Facebookand Twitter. It’s rapidly becoming a place where nurses are building their community, sharing procedure knowledge and career tips via infographics, as well as clinical advice, nursing humor, and gift ideas.

To help you grow and learn, as well as find a sense of inspiration and community, here is a list of six Pinterest boards every nurse should follow:

There are many different infographics, including homemade diagrams from other nurses, to help you study different procedures and techniques during your nursing school courses. If you’re looking for a bit of a break from studying, there are tons of humorous quotes and ecards to keep you light-hearted after a long day of studying.

If you’re looking for a Pinterest board focused on creative ideas for parties for nurses, party favors, and quotes and sayings that will strike your funny bone – than this is the right place to be.

Pinterest is a great way to bookmark items useful to you, such as boards full of pins with infographics, so you are able to go back and use it for study material. And once you graduate from nursing school, it will be helpful to review those infographics and diagrams, as well as plan your nursing school graduation party.
