As nurses we have awesome experiences to share with the world. It is just hard to find a voice or a space where we can share how we see healthcare and the changes that are needed to help it thrive. I was the same way then I decided I wanted to start my own nursing blog. I have enjoyed having a blog to share my challenging, heartfelt, and happy experiences as a nurse and will say over the over the last year I decided to focus on non-nursing ways to give back, but I am staying dedicated this year. And I recommend blogging to other nurses who like me, want to a online outlet to start conversations that potentially could make positive impacts in healthcare. So here’s how you start a nursing blog.
- Decide on what you will blog about
- See if the domain name you want is available
- Chose a domain name
- Select a website hosting site like
- Install a blogging software like WordPress
- Select a Theme
- Design Your Site
- Write your first post
- Share your post via social media outlets
Being a nurse is challenging…starting a nursing blog is not. It’s really pretty simple.
