Nursing Professionalism: Impact of Social Media Use among Nursing Students

Social media usage among young adults has increasingly become a method, by which, most every aspect of personal life are publicly communicated. Observations of these communications can quickly reveal one’s political, social, and professional viewpoints. Some human resource departments screen applicant’s public social media profiles as part of the hiring process. In a Society for Human Resource Management 2013 survey, 22% of respondents indicated that they use social media websites, such as Facebook or Instagram to research job applicants. The nursing profession is not immune to these types of recruitment and hiring practices. Due to a nursing shortage, nurse recruiters within hospital human resources departments often find that filling vacancies in some nursing units can be difficult.
