NMC issues Facebook and Twitter warning

Comment

I think that as nurses we have to remember that our code of professional conduct is paramount at ALL TIMES !! I am a huge advocate of nurses using social media especially in a professional capacity and regularly tweet and blog about the development of #nurseuk in crreating an online nurse community, but there have to be clear boundaries - social media is a public forum and should be respected as such, the rules of confidentiality and our code of conduct apply to social media as much as they apply to any aspect of our lives. There is a wealth of information that we can share as nurses using social media and this can aid with development and training. We must not let a few inappropriate nurses put us off using these tools as i believe that social media has a very important role to play in the future of nursing and nursing communities.
