Email and texting etiquette for nurses


Spice Up the Subject Line

Time is everything for a busy nurse. An unclear subject line is more likely to end up in the trash when you’re faced with reading through an overcrowded inbox or checking in on a patient. Limit your subject line to 40 characters and a few seconds. In the daily battle of nurse vs. message, the strongest emails survive by reeling in the reader with a pertinent subject line. So how do you make sure yours won’t get buried in the pile? Not by slapping on “URGENT! READ NOW!” Cut to the chase with a simple comment or action. Better yet, if you can convey the email’s message in the subject line, do it!
