Comment of the week: No Facebook privacy for nurses?
I am currently in nursing school, and I keep my Facebook private and only allow my friends to view my page. Unfortunately, my page isn’t completely private; schools and potential employers are able to view your profile, without your permission. I know firsthand because a school official actually showed the class that the school was able to view any student’s profile. Thankfully, I don’t post anything about school or work. Also, by posting pictures of patients, one can be fired or fined and may lose their license due to the fact that it’s a HIPAA violation.
