Happy 4th Birthday to leading nurse twitter chat NurChat

The 4th August 2015 marks the 4th birthday for leading nurse and healthcare twitter chat, NurChat.

Since its inception 4 years ago, NurChat has evolved from an exciting idea to bring nurses together online into a bustling community of people from across the healthcare sector who regularly come together to discuss topical issues. Healthcare leaders, registered nurses, expert patients and students from several healthcare fields have all contributed their thoughts and opinions on key issues such as Revalidation, developments following the Francis and Kirkup reports, social media in healthcare and supporting student nurses in their learning and development.

In celebration of the 4th Birthday, we are holding a goody bag giveaway for the first 100 people to tweet “Happy 4th Birthday @NurChat!” on 4th August (T&Cs apply).

Hosted by Newcross Healthcare lead nurses, Donna Mullikin and Caroline Chamberlain, NurChat is open to everyone with an opinion to share on the topic under discussion. 

If you’ve never joined in a #NurChat discussion before, come along on 4th August 2015 at 20:00 UK time where we’ll be discussing technology in nursing: how far is too far? Check out our how to join #NurChat guide here, plus you can use our NurChat chat app to take part.
