Join Me for Twitter Bootcamp and a practice chat with @PHNurse_org April 19!
A big reason I love social media is because the platforms are a perfect opportunity to leverage awareness of all the innovative and creative work being done by people in my tribe.
I am very excited to be leading Teach A Nurse to Tweet: APHN Bootcamp at 2pm EST on Tuesday, April 19.
The bootcamp session is designed to introduce you to some basics and get you started with Twitter right away….including some tips on Tweeting at conferences and live events. During this session, I won’t be convincing you to join the Twitterverse. So, if you are looking for more reasons Nurses gain value personally and professionally from Twitter…check out these blog posts :

Immediately following the Bootcamp Webinar, you will have a chance to flex your social media muscles in a practice chat session in real time on Twitter. If you’ve never participated in a Twitter chat, this is your chance! It will be a fun, informal chance to practice with a friendly group….and make new friends!
We’ll start at 3:30pm EST, and the hashtag you will want to follow is #APHNchat.
If you don’t have a Twitter account yet, but want to get a jump-start ahead of the webinar, check out my blog post Teach A Nurse To Tweet, you’ll find some very quick pointers to get you set up in no time!
The best way to participate in a Twitter chat is to log in to the website Tweetchat.com and enter the chat hashtag #APHNchat in the prompt box at the top of the page. There are two great reasons to do this:
- 1. The thread will only feature tweets by folks who are joining the #APHNchat
- 2. The hashtag #APHNchat will automatically be added to every tweet you post, so you don’t have to remember to add it as you go.
If you want to try it out ahead of time…go ahead and log in to tweetchat. I will have some promo tweets already posted for you to check out. And maybe a couple of surprise visitors will have tweeted too!
Here’s the cool graphic I’ll be posting on Twitter to promote the chat, so make sure to follow me at either @thesocialnurse or @cbushrn.
Hope to ‘see’ you Tuesday!
