Relationships are important in nursing, not only the relationship between a patient and a nurse, but the relationship between a nurse and the broader nursing community, other nursing professionals, and nursing industry organizations. Even in a field with such growth and so many opportunities as nursing has, who you know matters, and participating in social and professional communities with other nurses can be both personally and professionally rewarding. One online venue where many nurses and nursing organizations have started connecting with each other is Google Plus. Many hospitals, clinics, and individual nurses use their Google Plus accounts to share news tidbits and discuss the pressing matters that affect the explosively growing field of nursing.

These Google Plus accounts represent individuals and groups from across the nursing spectrum. This list isn’t a ranking, but a repository of great accounts and communities that any nurse who uses Google Plus should follow. Whether you’re a beginning nursing student or experienced pro, you can make friends and even find your next career opportunity through Google Plus.
