New Technologies in Nursing

New technology can be as intimidating for nurses as it sometimes is for patients, so appropriate training and system design is vital for success. As technology is adapted into more health care settings, it may eventually be used in new, unexpected ways, or bring to light new possibilities that can improve nursing practice and health care even further. Besides from requiring new skills to understand and operate them correctly, these new technologies require nurses to have top critical-thinking, decision-making, and leadership skills to support the maximum benefits to their practice as well as patients.
