Last spring, when we entered this new world of social media, it was quite a new experience for most of us at NursingCenter.com. We did our research, enlisted some help, and then got our feet wet with a Facebook page and Twitter account.
Back in August of 2009, we posted one of our first polls on Facebook. None of our polls really ever got much of a response; perhaps our topics weren't that enticing or it was just easier to comment on a wall post than to actually vote in a poll. Somehow (I'll admit that this was not my intention initially!) one of our polls became a box on our ""wall"" page. This poll caught my attention recently as I was perusing the list of our latest fans. What a surprise when I saw the amount of responses that had accumulated over the past months.
We've had 286 responses to ""Do you think you were destined to be a nurse?"" After getting 10 to 20 responses on several other polls, I found 286 to be impressive. But what I find even more impressive is that 83% of the respondents said ""Absolutely!"", while only 3% voted for ""Don't think so."" Fourteen percent replied ""Maybe - never really thought about it.""
So, now I ask you, our blog readers, do you think you were destined to be a nurse?
