A client sent a "friend" request to my personal Facebook account. Is it okay to accept?
It's not appropriate for you to be a client's personal Facebook friend. The reason for your relationship with the client is to provide professional nursing services. Nurse-client relationships occur within boundaries that separate professional relationships from personal ones. As the nurse, you are responsible for setting, maintaining and communicating these boundaries with your clients, both face-to-face and online.
The Boundaries in the Nurse-Client Relationship practice standard sets clear expectations for nurses' relationships with clients.
