What RNsights Can Do For You


We are excited to welcome and introduce you to RNsights.  Our team has been hard at work over the last 24 months brainstorming, researching, designing and developing a unique and meaningful online professional social network experience for nurses.  Through hundreds of hours of interviews with nursing associations, industries serving the nursing profession and most importantly, nurses, we have created a cutting edge social network platform that will change the way nurses use the web to connect with peers, mentors and experts, share evidence based solutions on clinical and non-clinical work related issues, and engage with and influence the industries supporting their profession.


Each of our team members have their own reasons for taking part in this journey but the one reason we all share is our commitment in trying to make a difference in the work lives of those nurses who provide compassion, dedication and great care to the people they serve every day.  It is in this spirit that we are proud to offer RNsights as a free resource to the nursing profession.


Through member-to-member, member-to-group and member-to-expert communication, RNsights enables nurses to collaborate with those who can make a difference in their work life.  It’s anonymous so nurses have a safe place to ask their questions and get resolution to work related issues.  To make the site more effective, nurses can interact only with those in their area of specialization or with those outside their area of specialization when necessary.  Whether it is to discuss clinical or non-clinical issues, gather information from those who might have more experience or updated knowledge in a particular area, or just to stay abreast of the latest discussions in their area of specialization or within the nursing profession, RNsights provides an easy to use (even for those more technically challenged) online professional community for nurses.


In addition to the above, RNsights offers market research opportunities for the industries supporting the nursing profession.  By participating in this market research, members will earn money by engaging with the industries serving them – enabling nurses to help shape the products they use and services they receive.  This market research opportunity provides nurses a voice with the industries supporting them.


Nurses also receive achievement points redeemable for rewards for their participation on the site.  By helping their peers and being engaged on the site, members will be rewarded through the RNsights achievement program.  It is another way of RNsights making sure nurses are appreciated and recognized for their efforts.


On behalf of the RNsights team, we thank you for your participation and we look forward to serving our membership, evolving our site and making a difference to the nursing profession.


  1. A prenursing dergee allows for you to earn the required course work before entering a BSN program at a university.Most jobs health-care related will require you to get some sort of certification, at best you could test to become a CNA. Some doctor’s office’s might hire you as receptionist but they usually prefer Medical Assistants.If you looking to have a job while going to nursing school, I suggest you get certified as CNA, not only will you earn money but you will learn about nursing especially if you work at a hospital and some of that experience will become invaluable during your education.

    • I don’t know about Illinois, sorry, but I believe it’s prttey standard that you can take your board exams as many times as it takes.It is up to your employer to decide if they want to continue to employ people while waiting for them to pass and it is not uncommon for people to fail at least once. It is common courtesey to hold a nursing position at least until they test a second time. It’s not unheard of for them to hold it longer. But obviously if you think you are suffering and that your employer’s policies are unreasonable, you should voice your concerns. Are you part of a union? You could talk to a union rep for support also.Good luck!
