The Twitter version of The Nurse Practitioner journal. Their tweets are generally quotes from medical news articles followed by links to the full articles, but they also link to their most popular journal articles. However, if you don’t have a subscription to their journal, you can sometimes only read the abstract. Overall, they strike a fairly even balance between NP-specific and general medical coverage.
