In Episode 3 of “The Nurse Keith Show”, holistic career coach Keith Carlson of NurseKeith.com discusses the crucial importance of professional networking for all nurses, whether they’re nursing students, novice nurses, or seasoned professionals.
Keith contends that online and face-to-face networking skills should be developed and maintained throughout your career, and that building a robust professional network is a key to success. Linked In, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest are discussed as social media platforms where many nurses connect with one another, and strategies for creating dynamic connections are discussed.
When you develop authentic, symbiotic relationships with a growing cohort of like-minded nursing and healthcare professionals in your industry, you’ll be able to tap the expertise and collective genius of that network when you need it most. Meanwhile, networking is always a two-way street, thus being a professional who gives to and supports others is another way to promote and build long-term positive relationships with other nurses and professionals.
If you want to have the most satisfying career possible, a powerful professional network is an important aspect of your career that should be conscientiously tended on a daily basis.
