On the Pulse, the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing blog, has been named one of the Top 50 Blogs for Nurses by Nurse.org. The ranking was based on the quality of our content, frequency of posts, writer credentials, and amount of helpful content. It also continues in our tradition of being named among the best in nursing—last year we were ranked No. 7 out of the top 60 blogs about nursing by Feedspot.
A collective effort of students, faculty, and staff writers across the school, On the Pulse features nursing and health topics like diversity, access to care, and workplace issues as well as cardiovascular care, cancer care, public and community health, HIV, violence, global initiatives, and more.
We also have a number of ongoing series including:
- Health Equity—dissecting social determinants of health
- What Nurses Need to Know—providing nurses with practical and tactical advice for improving care
- Podcasts by Dean Patricia Davidson—covering the latest issues in nursing and global health
- Isabel Hampton Robb Nursing Ethics—examining ethical issues in everyday nursing practice
- Quirky Baltimore—discovering the city’s charm and neighborhoods
Special thanks to Nurse.org for recognizing our blog, and kudos to our readers and contributors who make the blog not just a resource for our school but the whole nursing profession.
