I've been thinking alot about my Facebook account since all the problems it has brought to people not only in nursing school but also peoples lives.
So my question to you is: if you get accepted to nursing school will you delete your account? Or if in school now will you delete after you graduate?

excuse me: it's when i get accepted to nursing school, not if ... :d ... now that we clarified that ...
as far as deleting my facebook account, absolutely not. facebook has become a lifeline in my daily living. it's the major artery to my friends and family across the miles about what is happening in my life and what i am reading and discussing online (supplemented of course with phone calls and skype). it has also reconnected me with friends and family from the past that i had once believed were lost forever. taking that away from me would be quite devastating. that's basically what i use facebook for, and not for time-consuming nonsense such as farmville. as others have said, a common sense approach to what one posts on facebook together with diligent monitoring of one's privacy settings and what certain friends can and cannot see is all that is required to stay out of trouble.
that girl who posted the placenta picture online was a fool. she should have known better. at least i am sure she does now!
edit: came back to add one thing to say that one has to be careful as well what friends to have on your friends list. i don't accept just anyone. and i do have everyone on lists so not everyone on my list can see everything i post.
