Practice Support Tool Profile this Month
Social Media Practice Guideline
Nurses are accountable to know how their employer policy, standards of practice, code of ethics and practice guidelines apply to social media use. There are benefits to social media use but also many potential risks to clients, nurses and the profession. We developed the Social Media Practice Guideline to help nurses understand their accountabilities related to social media and identify strategies to minimize risk and continue to meet their standards of practice.
Our practice support tools (previously known as documents, publications and/or resources) are organized alphabetically by topic. Click on a topic that interests you to access a variety of helpful tools on the topic, such as practice guidelines, Q&As and more. Some topics also include designation-specific tools relevant to the nurse’s individual scope of practice.
