Trying to filter out the TMI tweets from quality content? Let NursingLink help you! We’ve compiled a list of which nurses (or profiles) we think you should be following on Twitter, and our top picks range from podcast hosts to social media savvy RNs.

So without further ado, see why these nurses have garnered such a large following and not by mistake:

@Podmedic – Jamie Davis — aka The King of Podcasts — hosts The Nursing Show where he covers a range of topics, from emergency cardiac care to nursing reviews on allergies. Don’t be surprised if you hear some of nursing’s popular bloggers making guest appearances.

@HealthisSocial – You’ll find plenty of tweets linking you to good social media reads both in regard to the healthcare industry and beyond.

@PhilBaumann – An RN, blogger, and social media enthusiast (among other things) who started #RNChat – the first Twitter chat for nurses. Also, his account @PhilFeed pools together a variety of tweets involving technology and healthcare.

@Nursetweets – Scrubs Magazine tweets everything from nursing-related jokes to lifestyle content and on-the-job advice for nurses.

@Timefornurses – You’ll find a nice blend of tweets linking to their blog posts, podcasts, and other multimedia from their reputable guest authors.

@InfusionNurse –Cora Vizcarra is a seasoned infusion nurse who also started #IVChat. If she’s not making a guest appearance on The Nursing Show, you can read her blog at

@Onlinenursing – Terri Schmitt has been a nurse for 14 years and her blog focuses on “nursing, nurse practitioners, service to others and life in general.”

@Travelnursing – Tons of great tweets linking you to their blog, which has everything you need to know about travel nursing, how to get started, what it’s like, and more.

@EllenRichter— A regular hostess for #RNChat, Ellen Richter is also a legal nurse consultant who resides in south Florida. You can count on her tweets for all things related to social media and nursing.

@ATINursing—This profile is great for nursing students. ATI regularly tweets NCLEX study and note-taking tips.

@nursingworld (ANA) – this profile is handy for updates on laws and policies that affect nursing and healthcare.

    This is a great list of nurses to follow. We followed most, but there are a few new twitter accounts on the list that we weren't aware of. Thanks.

    We follow and retweet information that's interesting to non-bedside nurses in professions such as: case management, utilization review, appeals / denials, clinical documentation improvement, HEDIS, medical record review and worker's comp. If you're interested in following us you can find us at @pathwaymedical
