Abstract

There is a noticeable gap in the literature regarding the programmatic integration of social media into health sciences education. Networked participatory scholarship theory supports the use of social media in higher education; associated benefits include promoting student engagement and real-time dissemination. This article describes the integration of social media use in a graduate online doctoral nursing program; specifically, blogging, microblogging, and ePortfolio integration are presented. The purpose is to improve students' utilization of social media as a professional tool.
