Top Blog for Science of Caring

Screen shot of Science of Caring homepageGeriatricNursing.org ranks the Dean's Blog of the Science of Caring as one of the top sources of nursing education. 

A leading online resource for providing information on nursing schools and programs that offer geriatric nursing education, GeriatricNursing.org recently compiled a list of “99 Best Nursing Blogs of 2017.” According to the review:

“The Dean’s Blog of Science of Caring is a brilliant read, whether you're a nursing student, a licensed worker or a teacher. Combining educational articles with real stories, testimonies and experiences, the site provides information on recent healthcare discovery and the latest medical research, academic nursing developments, as well as heartwarming pieces about the important of cultivating a ‘we’ instead of ‘me’ mentality.”

The School is grateful to our editorial partners in Andrew Schwartz’ team, including Laura Myers Design as well as Elisabeth Fall Photography, and thrilled to be honored for our nursing blog efforts. Science of Caring is a monthly online publication from the UC San Francisco (UCSF) School of Nursing (School) whose mission is to deliver original, insightful stories about important issues in health care from the perspective of our scientists and clinicians.

The School believes nursing has a responsibility to assert its voice. Too often, despite nurses’ essential and growing roles in delivering care and the outstanding communication efforts of many of our colleagues, our voices can be hard to find. Nurse scientists, clinicians and students from the School periodically contribute their voices. If you have story ideas, responses to articles, questions or concerns, please comment – stories are open to public comments – or contact us.
