If there is such a thing as a virtual “thumbs up,” the College of Nursing at Brigham Young University would take it.
Recently the college was recognized as #44 of the 100 Most Social Media Friendly Nursing Schools in the nation. The inaugural listing from GraduateNursingEDU.org ranked programs on the use of Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter.
“We are pleased to be included in the ranking,” says Jeff L. Peery, college PR supervisor. “Our media team regularly posts material about alumni, students, and faculty and it is nice to receive a reward for these efforts.”
The results provided the college insight into areas for improvement or future higher results.
“Perhaps the greatest thing our followers could do is engagement,” says Peery. “Liking, sharing, and reposting content are great ways to connect with the program as well as demonstrate social media prowess.”
