    INDIANAPOLIS — All But Dissertation, or ABD — the dreaded term no PhD or master’s student trying to complete his or her dissertation or capstone project wants to hear. Writing a final paper to earn an advanced degree is a daunting task, even for the most confident candidate. Nurses are no exception.

    Karen Roush, PhD, APN, knows more than a thing or two about writing one of these final papers. Her new book A Nurse’s Step-By-Step Guide to Writing Your Dissertation or Capstone, published by the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), is a straightforward how-to guide that will help students plan and write the perfect finale to their education. She delves into the fundamentals of exactly what the student needs, with a short, concise guide.

    Roush knows that the nursing field rarely prompts students to focus on their writing skills. Her role as a writing mentor with years of experience as an editorial director and clinical managing editor encouraged her to create this clear, highly practical step-by-step guide for the busy student nurse, coaching readers through the scholarly writing process in an engaging, conversational style.

    “While working on my doctorate, I was often asked to help other doctoral students with writing up their dissertations, and oftentimes their professors recommended they contact me,” Roush said. “Through working with them I realized how unprepared students were for the writing aspect of dissertation work and how that often impeded their progress and resulted in a lot of frustration. It was rewarding to help them overcome that, and writing this book is a way of reaching many more doctoral students who are struggling with the writing.”

    The book is available at www.nursingknowledge.org/sttibooks.

    “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.
