Britain's Nurses

As you may or may not know, a new and exciting virtual-nursing desitination known as Britain's Nurses is due to launch online next month. The aim of the site is to celebrate all things nursey, and showcase the abdundant and varied career opportunities that exist within the field, with the focus very much being on working to 'change the perception of nursing as a career - both from within nursing and the wider public arena'. In addition, Britain's Nurses has been born with the intention of encouraging greater communication between nurses with the hopes of building a far-reaching support network; a trend that is definitely on the rise thanks to the Nursing Twitteratti, and initiatives such as Nurchat and Nurseshift discussions.

The site will feature a variety of content including interactive quizes, humorous nursing anecdotes, a look back through the nursing archives, and some random ramblings from myself in the form of a guest blog - cue shameful self-promotion claxon!

Britain's Nurses launches in conjunction with London South Bank University and Edinburgh Napier University in March, and will follow with the major launch in June. Head on over to to register, and for your chance to win an iPad2 - which I personally think should go to some random cash-poor, first-year, nursing student... ahem.
