Finding nurses to follow on twitter can be a challenge. While a simple search may reveal tweeters who have “nurse”, “RN”, “BSN”, or another term associated with nursing, it can be difficult to tell if that person actually tweets about nursing. And even more frustrating is to actually find tweeters that tweet routinely and about nursing related topics.
It’s a good thing then when you can find a list that has been researched and vetted and tells you exactly which nurses and nursing organizations are worth following on twitter.
Online Nurse Practitioner Programs has created a comprehensive guide of nurses on twitter in it’s post 100 Twitter Feeds Every Nurse Should Follow. They have organized the nurses into category which include: Nurse Education & Academics, Nursing & Health,Nursing Professionals, and Nursing Employment.
I’ve been honored with the opportunity to be included on this list in the category of Nursing Professionals. Many of the other names are recognizable tweeters and it appears that they are all worthy of following.
A few of my nursing friends who made the list:
- Terri Schmitt – @onlinenursing –Terri Schmitt
- Lisa – @asthehosptuRNs – Lisa
- Julianna Paradisi – @jparadisirn – Julianna Paradisi
- Joyce Harrell – @JoyceHarrellRN – Joyce Harrell RN
- Renee Thompson – @RTConnections – Renee Thompson
- Donna Petko – @DonnaPetko – Donna Petko, RN
- Andrew Lopez – @nursefriendly – Andrew Lopez RN
