Social Media Award

Deadline: September 14, 2019

With the rise of technology and digital media, more students are turning to social media to communicate news regarding the nursing profession. With a low budget, most school chapters are using social media as a platform for their school chapter websites as well. With the wealth of presence on social today, it is an effective medium to promote the positive image of nursing.

The primary purpose of a school or state social media platform is to inform the membership of chapter events and other nursing news in a timely manner. The secondary purpose is to promote a positive image of nursing and to report on state/school news, news in nursing, and encourage participation.
