On February 17, our Chief Clinical Officer, Rebecca Love, is hosting the second installment of Twitter Chat, #ANursesVoice, to amplify the voice of nursing. Want to add your voice to the conversation? Follow these few simple steps for you to join her next chat on 2/17 at 6 pm EST.
Step #1: Don’t Miss it!
Just like any other event, Twitter chats happen at a certain place (twitter.com) at a specific time; Rebecca’s next chat will run from 6-7 pm ET (3-4 pm PT). Mark your calendar or set a reminder so that you don’t forget the event. Give yourself time to get situated, we suggest logging on to Twitter 5-10 minutes before the chat begins so you don’t feel rushed. However, you are welcome to join at any time during the hour and there is never a minimum time commitment.
Step #2: Log in to Twitter
Go to Twitter.com or load the Twitter app on your phone and log in to your account. You can read Tweets from a chat without logging in, but you can’t participate without being logged in. If you need more information on setting up a Twitter account please visit:
Step #3: Locate the Twitter Chat
Search for the hashtag in the search bar; for example, the hashtag for Rebecca’s chat is called #ANursesVoice so you would enter it as “#ANursesVoice” or “anursesvoice,” it is not case sensitive, but do not add spaces. When the search results load click on “Latest” at the top of the page/app to follow along.
Step #4: Spread the Word
If you plan to tweet participate tell your followers with a Tweet just make sure to always include the hashtag so you’re included in the chat.
