About the Nurses Lounge

What is Nurses Lounge?

Nurses Lounge is a professional network for nurses. Nurses can choose to stay connected and informed to the people, organizations, and information import to their careers.

  • Nurse organizations such as schools, associations, and employers can use Lounge pages to invite and engage their nurses to stay informed and connected.
  • Nurses can build their professional online resume, engage with the people and organizations they choose, as well as search continuing education, nursing conferences, events, webinars, and jobs.

As a professional network, how is Nurses Lounge different from Linkedin?

Nurses Lounge is first about providing nursing organizations a turnkey solution to post and distribute news directly to their nursing constituents and to the broader nursing profession on a timely basis. Linkedin is multi-professional geared more to individual networking.

How does Nurses Lounge work?

Over 6,000 employers, 1500, nursing schools, 100 nurse specialties, and each state have been uploaded into the Nurses Lounge system. As nurses register, they will automatically follow pages created around the information they fill out. Nurses can choose to follow or un-follow any page as well as join pages created around associations they belong to. As a follower or member of a Lounge page you will receive email updates of posts created.

Nurse organizations such as schools, associations, and employers can either; search and claim their page (if it has already been created), or request to have a Lounge page made for them. As pages are claimed and created representatives from these organizations can be made page admins. As an admin, reps can engage their members, create posts, and edit any content.

When was Nurses Lounge formed?

Nurses Lounge started off as a direct mail magazine in Dallas, TX in 2003 and published through mid-2011. Through this experience, Nurses Lounge became acutely aware of the problems nursing organizations have trying to distribute news and information on a timely basis, not only to the broader nursing profession, but also to their direct constituents. In 2009, the first version of our professional network was launched.

How much does the Nurses Lounge cost?

There is no charge (nor is there a plan to ever charge) for individual nurses, nurse associations and non-profit nursing schools to participate in the Nurses Lounge.
