    “And that is the power of social media!” is a favorite statement a friend regularly proclaims when a connection is made via social media that segues into some level of mind-blowing results that would not have been achieved otherwise.

    Although called social media, we all know the internet is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to connecting us professionally. As well as the ability to do us in professionally.

    Increasingly, people understand the need to separate their professional and personal lives online. Your current or future employers are not your audience for your personal online life.

    Know that you will be Googled by anyone considering hiring you for a new job. What will they find? Activity on a professional online network, such as Nurses Lounge, is certainly preferable to photo proof of your weekend at Panama City Beach.

    More than seventy percent of jobs are filled through networking rather than from job ads. In the nursing field recruiters rely heavily on referrals from other nurses to fill their most important positions.

    Your professional network is made up of your professional interactions and relationships you create and nurture. While we still network and make connections at conferences and workshops, it’s our online professional activity where our reach is limitless. Using an online professional network enables you to have professional interactions and relationships with nurses that are as authentic and normal as one you might create at a conference workshop.

    Nurses young in their careers will be surprised at how authentic connections made with veteran nurses through online networking can blossom into true professional relationships. We’ve learned to grow friendships through our online social networks, and it’s imperative to do the same for our professional network.

    Hospitals are skilled at branding themselves with great physician and patient stories, but it's nurse recruiting that is often done behind the scenes. Referrals are the life blood of hospital nurse recruiting, and administration would be wise to use the power of social media to let their nurses help them.

    If you’re a nurse, hospital or nursing school who wants to network online with other nurses across the country, check out Nurses Lounge.
