Learn to protect patient medical information…and much more!

In your practice of nursing, you face sensitive situations on a regular basis. Knowing the small and large ways you can advocate for your nursing client’s privacy can help you create trust and gain a better outcome.

Patient Privacy will help you advocate for your nursing patients' privacy in a variety of situations. You’ll learn everything from the nuances of protecting patient confidentiality and personal space to integrating patient privacy rules (like HIPAA) into your day-to-day practice.

Protect your patient's right to privacy, both medical and personal
