This article considers the ethics of boundaries and nursing practice. The nurse's role as a “carer” is reflected in the context of boundary setting, boundary crossing, and boundary violation. This issue is redeveloped within the new perspective of the nurse's use of social media and boundary crossing. National and international regulations are discussed and individual cases assessed. The Nurses Code of Ethics is used as a framework. The American Nurses Association material on social media is reviewed.
