Social Media Nursing

In this project, we survey a diverse collection of nurses from a variety of fields on how they use the Internet and social media, what formal training or education they have with respect to technology, and what role their employers play in determining how they use technology in providing medical care. Based on the results of this survey, we identify improvements and recommend training to certain groups of nurses.
