Don't Post That! Social Media Best Practices for Nurses

Don't let social media jeopardize your career - learn how to avoid privacy/confidentiality violations when using social media.

The use of social media and other electronic communication is expanding exponentially as the number of social media outlets, platforms and applications available continue to increase. Social media is an exciting and valuable tool when used wisely. The very nature of this medium, however, can pose a risk to nurses as it offers instantaneous posting opportunities that allow little time for reflective thought, and therefore it should be used diligently. This topic will provide practical guidelines to nurses who use social media and will point viewers to the many resources that are available to health care workers on the appropriate use of social media.
