NurseCentral / Weblog / October Update


October Update

It's been a while since my last blog - I have never been a great diary writer. The biggest development for NurseCentral over the past month or so has been the design, ordering and delivery of our new Lanyards . I think they look great and I hope they spread around the country and become a useful item for members along with the added bonus of promoting NurseCentral along the way.

The website statistics are encouraging and continue to rise. New members are joining each week and we welcome you along. Not everyone has time to visit the site everyday but it would be great to hear about the issues that you are facing in your work, or innovations, new ideas you have or anything that you think other nurses and midwives would be keen to hear about or discuss. It is fun to lurk on the sides of a forum discussion, but it is even more enjoyable when you dive in and get involved, so I would encourage all the "lurkers" to join up or login and get involved. I understand forums are a new world to a lot of nurses, but give it a go anyway - your contributions will definitely be welcomed.

I have been busy renovating some office space and moving in over the past couple of months and it is great to finally be in a dedicated office space again. I've also been doing some work in the Riverland region of South Australia the last month - I always enjoy getting back to the country and working with rural health workers, it's a great environment.

Look forward to having a chat soon.

Darren
