Elgg Platforms // Professional Nursing Network

Nurses Lounge Nursing Network

The Challenge

The Nurses Lounge is a professional nursing network and online resource for the nursing profession with over 15,000 registered nurses actively participating. Their vision is to connect every nursing school, association, employer, and over 1,000,000 nurses in the Nurses Lounge.

Our Response

Arck was hired to port their site from an outdated and unsupported Oracle social platform called RightNow to a custom Elgg-based build and improve the site’s design and functionality. We developed a custom, Elgg-based, professional networking platform and migrated all of Nurses Lounge data from RightNow. The platform ensures that nurses have a professional online presence when the time counts, allowing them to highlight their qualifications and market themselves to the industry by connecting with recruiters inside and outside of the community. This allows opportunities to arise from a vast network of nursing professionals.
