Abstract

Previous research documents online unprofessionalism among nursing students. The current study assessed the effects of a peer-facilitated social media education session on changes in attitudes and knowledge among recently admitted prelicensure nursing students. Uncertain or incorrect attitudes and knowledge showed significant improvements after the session. Such interventions may enhance cyberprofessionalism in future student cohorts and warrant further exploration.
