Welcome to Nurse Focus – the website that I hope will become the go-to place for nurses and other medical professionals looking for in depth, well researched articles covering everything it means to be front-line in the ever changing healthcare environment.

We only launched in November 2018, so we do have a long way to go.

However, topics on Nurse Focus will cover general nursing issues, expert reviews on nursing products, emerging technologies and relevant services. You will also find helpful guides on how to become a medical professional, as well as a sprinkle of fun stuff such as related lifestyle and social media issues.

I want our audience to be as varied as possible. Fellow nurses, students, physicians, healthcare professionals, and the general public are all welcome here.

So please, explore the website, leave comments to let us know what you think, or even check in with ideas on content you’d like to see (or maybe contribute).

I would love to see Nurse Focus grow into a helpful community of those with a passion for the medical profession. It’s not an easy world to be in, and we could all use the support sometimes I feel.
