Yep. It's on my profile, I think. That's not all I blog about, but it's one of the topics that has predominated the posts. I graduated in December, so until I get a hospital job, the nursing posts will be scarce.
I am very careful to never even come close to giving information that could identify a patient. I'm even leery about any information that could identify the hospital I did clinicals at. I think schools
and employers are getting more savvy about this - some will have a blanket "this is prohibited without exception" and some will allow some latitude so long as you're nowhere near a HIPAA violation.
I will also be incredibly circumspect when it comes to anything that could be perceived as a negative rant about a person or group of people. I don't want a potential employer reading my blog years from now and thinking "wow, she's a negative Nelly," or that I have frequent personality clashes with people. I've had some absolutely horrific instructors, but all you'll see on my blog is "we didn't really get along." I save the details for my class feedback surveys and ratemyprofessor.
I have known people who say you're treading on dangerous ground even if you just put on your Facebook profile that you're a nursing student and what school, or to say what hospital you work at. I think that's a bit extreme. I think caution should be exercised, and people should always consider their posts from the perspective of the Dean of their school, a prospective employer, or even a lawyer naming them in a suit 10 years from now looking for evidence of poor nursing practice.
