Initially I began using Twitter as a professional networking medium and I shared links to my favorite health related articles, news clips, and educational videos. By posting useful links to current research, I created a personal on-line library of potential teaching tools.
When educating my savvy, free-thinking NYC patients, I no longer say, “I read something somewhere,” or “I think I saw it on the news a while back.” I am able to instantly access links on my Twitter feed that support my teaching. My patients are grateful for the information and are more likely to be compliant.

Hope to see more nurses on Twitter who will tweet to teach.
