I use the internet almost everyday, to read other nurses opinions and see how they are coping. (to remind myself I'm not in it alone)
To compare the situations nurses all over the world seem to find themselves in.
As a search engine to find topics I need more and up to date information on. (although I keep in mind not everything is TRUE)
To find where I can access articles I can not readily get in our tiny hospital library.
To keep in touch with nursing friends around the world.
For a joke or two to keep my patients and my co-workers in a happier frame of mind. (I try for a new one every day).
to assist me with making "new" policy. (why re-invent the wheel?)
Oh how did I ever manage without the Internet
