COVID-19 continues to affect many parts of our lives. As we get closer to figuring out this new normal, frontline workers, nurses especially, continue to care for those who need it most right now.
Personally, I have family and friends who are nurses, so their well-being is very much in my thoughts these days. I have to say a huge THANK YOU to the healthcare community right now. I can’t imagine the stress you’ve experienced in recent years.
Read on for nursing blogs that we love. And for even more, check out our previous list of nursing blogs.

It’s becoming increasingly common for healthcare facilities to require BSN degrees for the RNs that they hire. This is where online programs such as the RN to BSN program from @OKUC come into play. #FreshRN #nursingschool #BSN #MSN #OCUNursing #ad https://t.co/xjTE169G51

2. Healthy Workforce Institute
The Healthy Workforce Institute has a huge issue it has set out to help solve — disruptive behaviors in healthcare.
Since I’m not a healthcare worker, I had no idea a culture of bullying existed in this sector. I found this post to be a helpful way to begin to understand the types of mistreatment that healthcare workers are experiencing: What Leaders and Employees Can Do To Eradicate Bullying in Healthcare.
