Abstract: With increased mobility, it is important that individuals keep their own personal health records (PHRs). Nurse practitioners are encouraged to assume greater responsibility for PHR adoption and recognize the key role they play in recommending PHR use. This article also briefly discusses college students' perceptions of their exposure to online PHRs.
