I came up with this list of 101 interesting blog post ideas for nurses so that I could prove a point: there are so many things that nurses can write about. And I barely even scratched the surface with this list!
Nurses generally love learning. If we didn’t, we would have never made it through nursing school in the first place.
In order to keep our skills up to par and our licenses current, nurses frequently take continuing education courses. Many of us go a step further and become certified experts in our nursing specialties. Most importantly though, being a nurse requires learning about changes in the field of medicine and being open to new challenges during each and every shift. Healthcare is ever-changing, and it is increasingly important for nurses to stay fresh.
This is the coolest part about becoming a nurse blogger: each post about nursing can be written about from a completely different perspective. There are so many different specialties and diverse patient populations. And every nurse has different skill sets and experiences within their career that they can share. Furthermore, some nurses can bring entirely unique backgrounds into the mix, as many become nurses as a second or even third career.
In other words, nurses can bring a lot of life experience into their writing. We have important information to share.
First, you’ll become a better writer. Each time you create a new piece you improve and continue to develop your writing skills.
Second, you’ll become a better thinker. The blogging process helps you to stop and think deeper. You will find yourself having stronger opinions about nurse topics that matter. You will discover thoughts and ideas about nursing that you didn’t even know you had.
Since I began blogging in 2017, I have read nearly every nurse blog I can find on the internet. I have seen some pretty creative nurse niches and been inspired by what my fellow nurse peers are writing about.
I especially love reading about the amazing things nurses are doing in the face of adversary. For example, I recently read about how nurses in Paradise California continued to care for hospitalized patients during the most devastating fire in modern history. At one point some were outside trying to fight flames. Now if that isn’t blog-worthy, then nothing is.
(I really, really want to interview more nurses who go on medical missions and help people in need after catastrophic events. Many nurses care for patients in the face of devastation and their stories should be shared. In time, I will get there…)
I put a lot of effort into thinking of new topics that I would be interested in reading (or writing) about as a nurse. Don’t be surprised if you see several of these topics on my blog over the next year.
So, without further ado, here it is: 101 interesting blog post ideas for nurses. (If there is anything you thing I should add, please leave a comment and I will add it to my next list!)
(You need to know by now – if your goal IS to monetize your blog you must invest in a few courses to help move you forward. Otherwise, blogging is a lonely, frustrating island.)
