Do you use Twitter? If you do, did you make a short bio for your account?
I made a bio and in it I list that I’m an ER nurse. I didn’t get too many followers at first via listing that fact, as more people decided to follow me because I’d listed gardening and photography and dog owner in my bio as well.
Lately though I’m getting a lot of friend requests form RN organizations, fellow nurse and even some medical travel types of businesses.
I don’t talk about being a nurse on my blogs or on my Twitter account very often – mainly because I’ve been on medical leave from my work for about five years now due to Crohn’s disease. I’m sure I’d talk more about it if I were back to working regular shifts.
I do like connecting with fell ow nurses on Twitter as I can keep up on some things that are going on in the field. Even though most of my Twitter nurse friends are in the US and I’m in Canada there are a lot of similarities in our practices.
Do you connect with people in your profession or via things you’ve listed in your bio on Twitter?
