Nurses on Twitter 

There are more than 3.8 million registered nurses in the United States according to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). Even in this time of medical crisis, that number is expected to go up.

With so many in the field, getting ahead may prove to be a challenge. Getting up-to-date information and tips from other nurses, along with advice from professional organizations, may help you grow your nursing career

Twitter is a great tool for finding helpful information, but the sheer size of it—over 150 million accounts in 2019— can make finding the right content difficult. Our list of some of the best resources for nurses and nursing students will help. Following some of these organizations and nurses on Twitter may be valuable for your career.
