Social media allows individuals to create and participate in online communities. These
communities grant opportunities for individuals to share information, ideas, stories,
and engaging content such as photos and videos.
As an institution, Augusta University understands that social media plays a large
role in the lives of our students, alumni, faculty and staff. Our institutional values encourage members of the Augusta University family to interact with one another across
platforms. Social media platforms are easy-access, low-cost, large-audience communication
tools, that we as a university use to enrich our environment and further discovery.
Fun, witty, youthful, enthusiastic, and authentic.
In six words, it's who we are.
We are achievement-oriented but never boastful. We are friendly and open-minded. We
are smart but not arrogant. We have a sense of humor and use it tactfully. We communicate
our messages with a positive attitude. We are genuine, honest and transparent with
the information we share. We love learning about our community, their opinions and
experiences. We ask questions and aren't afraid of feedback. We are unique. We vary
our voice and tone to each audience with our values in mind.

Happy Nurses Week and #NursesDay to our future and current nurses at Augusta University! Join us in celebrating #NursesWeek by giving a special thank you message in the comments. Meet Whitney Dixon, RN, BSN, TCRN, DNP-AGACNP, Student and Alumna!
1. What inspired you to become a nurse?
When I was in high school, I was a member of the Future Health Professionals organization known as, HOSA. We traveled throughout Georgia and across the country, attended leadership conferences and competed in health care skill competitions. That’s how I fell in love with health care early on. My first job out of high school was in my local ER as a Patient Care Tech. I worked with some incredible nurses who inspired me and encouraged me to apply to nursing school. In 2015, I graduated from AU’s BSN program and now I work in the Trauma ICU at @aug_health. I am currently back in school seeking my Doctorate of Nursing Practice degree. When I am done, I will be an Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner.
2. What would you like people to know about nursing?
The possibilities are endless and the relationships are priceless! There are a million different directions you could take as a nurse. Many nurses enter the profession and it’s their second or third career choice.
3. Share a message to fellow nurses in honor of Nurses Week!
In honor of Nurses Week, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude and appreciation to all of the nurses reading this. Many of you feel overworked and under appreciated. I see you. I respect you. I hear you. I stand with you. We are nurses. We are one of a kind and together as one! You guys are amazing! You inspire me every single day. Thank you for everything that you do!
Sending all the positive vibes to #Jagnation during finals. YOU'VE GOT THIS! 💙
School is (almost) out for the SUMMER! Happy LAST day of classes, Jaguars.☀️💙
