facebook Group for State Nurses

Hey all!  This is a repost because I wanted to put it in an area that receives more traffic.  Here is goes:

I have been wanting to do this for a long time but have been holding back because I can't seem to find another group out there for a state.  This would be an informal chat and place for nurses to network outside of their nursing association.  Is there something I am missing as to why this isn't a thing??  There are SO many other FB groups out there for nurses but I think having state-specific and informal ones can be significantly valuable for so many.

Thoughts?  Insights?

Thanks!!

Thanks!  I did notice that.  It's helpful for sure.  I just wanted to branch out to the stated platform because the usage is so great.

I actually prefer my specialty organization and certification resources over my state resources. I am checking into those sites weekly or even daily because of their relevance to my role. My state sends out a newsletter via email should I need to be aware of anything state specific that is changing.

The problem with facebook is that it does not allow one to remain anonymous.

I am a member of the nurses with cards page. The problem with that one is there are just too many responses to topics. It's hard to really have a conversation when a thousand people respond to a post.
