Abstract

This study examined nursing students’ perceptions of confidentiality, accountability, and e-professionalism in relation to Facebook. All of the students were aware that posting patients’ names and pictures of patients constituted a confidentiality breach. When comparing students based on educational status, there were differing opinions on whether employers should use Facebook profile information for hiring decisions. Nursing programs should provide current education, including clear and up-to-date policies, about social media use.
