Nurse educators across New Mexico are teaching nursing course content online and are looking for fun ways to build community and engagement with learners. During 2020, the author has been investigating different online tools to share with nurse educators across the twelve New Mexico Nursing Education Consortium (NMNEC) nursing programs. After learning about the Bitmoji classrooms being utilized by K-12 educators, the author became curious about whether Bitmoji classrooms could be useful for nursing education. To trial this, the NMNEC (Bitmoji) Office was created for the 2020 Fall Virtual NMNEC Statewide Faculty Meeting and utilized as a way of sharing handouts and resources for faculty participants across twelve New Mexico Nursing Education Consortium (NMNEC) nursing programs. The creation of the NMNEC (Bitmoji) Office was successful. The process of self-instruction in learning how to create a Bitmoji classroom will be discussed along with lessons learned about implementation and some brain-stormed possibilities for use in healthcare education.
