Whether you’re an experienced RN or a new nurse just launching a career, LinkedIn can be an invaluable resource to you. Not only do LinkedIn Groups help you keep up with the latest industry news and developments, but they also enable you to connect with colleagues and even find job opportunities. Here are just a few reasons Remede recommends that nurses expand their social networks with LinkedIn:

Keep Up with Nursing News

Keeping up with the latest news is a crucial part of attaining success in any field. As a nurse, one of the best ways of gaining a leg up on the competition is to join LinkedIn Groups. From reading about recent trends, to staying abreast of the latest medications, equipment and evidenced based care, LinkedIn Groups like RN Network help nurses stay at the forefront of their profession. Additionally, you can learn about the top nursing education programs in the event that you want to continue your education.

Find Potential Positions

Along with helping nurses keep up with healthcare  developments, LinkedIn Groups are great for finding potential jobs. Groups like  Travel Nursing enable new and experienced RNs to network with their peers, who can often point them toward promising positions. Additionally, you can post your resume to the site for others to review and forward. With any luck, a fellow nurse will refer you to an exciting new position at their place of business.

Gain Career Insight

Just because you found that dream job doesn’t mean you should quit using LinkedIn. In fact, the Nursing Professionals Group is perfect for working nurses who want to network with peers and develop their careers. And because this group is closed to recruiters and salespersons, you can focus on connecting with colleagues and seeking out interesting information to grow in your chosen profession.
