NurseTogether.com, one of the fastest growing free online communities for nursing professionals, empowers nurses through top-quality original content from experts, interactive web-based social media tools, and value-added member benefits.
Working with NurseTogether provides the opportunity to inform and educate nurses about opportunities beyond the bedside in several of Dorland’s core areas. With more than 3 million members, the nursing profession is the largest segment of the nation’s healthcare workforce, and nurses make up more than 90 percent of professionals working in case/care management, patient advocacy and care coordination.
“We recognize the importance of informing nurses about the practice of case/care management, patient advocacy and care coordination to ensure an educated and competent workforce,” said Anne Llewellyn, Editor in Chief of Dorland Health Products and Services. “These dynamic areas are advanced practice roles that welcome new talent on an ongoing basis.”
In the current healthcare environment, with escalating healthcare costs and the unknowns of health reform, the partnership is aimed at producing more aligned and cohesive healthcare professionals.
“NurseTogether.com is excited and proud to partner with Dorland Health to help support case management professionals in their careers as well as their personal lives,” said Steve Curtin, Vice President of Content for NurseTogether.com.
The NurseTogether.com organization, launched in 2008, seeks to empower nurses with helpful information through a single, easy-to-use website, which stands as the basis of its content and outreach.
