STN Online Community

Login to the STN Online Community at community.traumanurses.org. The STN Online Community allows you to better network with your peers in STN. It includes enhanced features such as discussion forums, an integrated document library, blog, and many other networking features.



Here is some additional information that may be useful as you get to know the STN online community:

  • Login to the Community with the same username (i.e., your email address) and password that you use to login to the STN website. If you need assistance with your password, click here.

  • You are automatically a member of the Open Forum Community. This is a space for you to interact directly with your STN colleagues -- ask questions, share information and respond to others' posts. It will replace the general STN listserv.

    You will receive postings to this Forum directly to your email inbox. In these emails, clicking on “Reply via Email” allows you to reply via email. Clicking “Reply Online” allows you to reply to a discussion post via the STN Community website.

  • Similar to Facebook or LinkedIn, you can upload a photo and add a brief professional bio. You may also pull in data from your pre-existing LinkedIn account.


The Rules

If you do not understand any of the rules of conduct and need clarification, contact the Community administrator. STN does not actively monitor the Community for inappropriate postings and does not on its own undertake editorial control of postings. However, in the event that any inappropriate posting is brought to STN's attention, then STN, in its sole discretion, may take any and all appropriate action. Violation of a rule shall result in the following actions: 1st violation – written warning; 2nd violation – loss of Community privileges for one year. No exceptions.

  • Don't post commercial messages. Contact people directly with product and service information if you believe it would help them.
  • Don't post job openings. The STN Career Center is available for this purpose.
  • Use caution when discussing products. Information posted on the Community is available for all members to see, and comments are subject to libel, slander, and antitrust laws.
  • All defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, or illegal materials are strictly prohibited. Do not post anything in a Community message that you would not want the world to see or that you would not want anyone to know came from you.
  • Please note carefully all items listed in the disclaimer and legal rules below, particularly regarding the copyright ownership of information posted to the list.
  • Don't challenge or attack others. The discussions on the lists are meant to stimulate conversation not to create contention. Let others have their say, just as you may.

Community Etiquette

The following guidelines are not intended as rules or requirements for participating in the list. Instead, they are general tips for participating in online Community discussion in a responsible and courteous manner.

  • State concisely and clearly the topic of your comments in the subject line. This allows members to respond more appropriately to your posting and makes it easier for members to search the archives by subject.
  • Do not send administrative messages, such as remove me from the list, through the Community. Instead, use the Web interface to change your settings or to remove yourself from a list. If you are changing e-mail addresses, you do not need to remove yourself from the list and rejoin under your new e-mail address.
