Struggling in nursing school?

Answer:

C.  “The nurse can make a copy of my medical record to send it to my friend.”

Rationale: 

Privacy and confidentiality are important aspects of maintaining patient security while he receives healthcare services. The nurse must educate the patient about his rights to privacy and security of his health information. The patient has a right to get a copy of his medical record, but the nurse cannot simply make a copy and send it to someone else at the patients request.
