NICU Blog?

  1. Hi fellow nurses!

    A few friends and I have been talking about creating an informative NICU blog for nurses, mainly with info to advise aspiring NICU nurses about basic NICU info, and to discuss NICU current events.

    It seems like so many of the questions on this forum are asked over and over and over again--maybe it would be helpful to address these concepts as articles.

    Would anybody be interested in this type of resource? Would it be appropriate to link articles to this site?

    All input is appreciated

    Thanks for all of the responses, guys! I got so little feedback initially that I kind of put it on the back burner while I study for my RNC certification exam.

    Anyway, the site infrastructure is done, but I'm still working on content. Most of it is information covers topics that I've posted about on AllNurses time and time again, although there area few new topics. I'm a bit hesitant to go live due to privacy, employment, and legal concerns, but if/when I do, I'd be happy to PM people the links!

    I think this would be a great resource. Years ago I found a resource for adult ICU nurses that was discussed in this forum somewhere. It was useful to me as a telemetry nurse and even somewhat as I transitioned to NICU nursing. Maybe you can use the site as inspiration but use it for NICU specific topics.

    I would love to get a link to your blog when you get it set up! I think its a great idea. I feel like as long as its done informally with no names mentioned people could speak about their hospital's policies and procedures.
