The Rise of Blogs in Nursing Practice

Joni Watson presents blogging’s validity as a useful tool for the professional growth of nurses in her article, The Rise of Blogs in Nursing Practice, published in the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing (CJON, April 2012, Vol. 16, No. 2). In the article, Watson guides nurses through integrating blog information into their practices.

Joni Watson authors the blog Nursetopia, and contributes posts for the ONS blog Re:Connect.

Joni opened her article with paragraph from a JParadisiRN post (used with permission). Citing blog posts in journal publishing indicates the growing legitimacy of the medium.

Other blogs noted in the article are Emergiblog, Nursing Center’s In the Round (Lisa Bonsall), The Nerdy Nurse, and of course, Off the Charts, the blog of the American Journal of Nursing.
