1. Learn About Industry Trends and Breakthroughs

Social media is largely about learning. While some of us are leveraging social media as marketing or micro-blogging tools, many nurses are banding together and sharing important information about trends happening in their industry today.

Great ways to learn about what’s happening in healthcare now:

• Follow and fan professional organizations like the CDC, Mayo Clinic, or ANA for reliable information. You can usually find links to their social media profiles on their homepage.

• Follow and fan your favorite nurse bloggers to see what they are saying online. Chances are they’re offering their expertise and perspective on what’s happening in the profession today.

• See what nurses are saying in the Twitter chats. You’ll find everything from new ideas to opinions about hot-button issues.
