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.
@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.
