Utilizing technology effectively as a nurse has never been easier due to the many resources available to us from so many well versed nurses and clinicians out there and we wanted to take this opportunity to showcase a few of these experts as part of the Scrubs Magazine Blog Carnival. What are some thoughts that you may have when we mention technology in nursing? Bridging gaps in patient care, connecting communities, a portal to improving our skills, or is it more along the lines of frustration, communication breakdown and ultimately a disconnect from those patient populations we’re working with?
Below is a video rounding up some of the insights from the top leaders and though provokers out there when it comes to technology in nursing. These nurses really captured the barriers to entry, but also the benefits we can appreciate when utilizing this technology for the greater good.

Technology surely makes nursing task handy and easy than before. With the latest invention and tool innovation use in nursing, nurses enjoys the benefits it provides! But it also important to remember not to rely on it always as it may fail.
With technology advancing rapidly, are there going to be less responsibilities for RNs in the future?

Love it! This is a great post that not only shares with us all of the resources and benefits, but highlights the profession in a really great way! Thanks for some amazing work.
I couldn't agree more, social media provides so much opportunity to “build the voice of nursing” by bringing nurses together. This is a great collection of advice for nurses who want to learn more about the best way to get started.
This is a fantastic post! I love the video component. What better way to highlight technology in nursing than to use it!
I am really impressed with all the contributions this round. Everyone should be really proud of their work.
Thank you for the recap and the kind mentions Kevin. Glad that we share the goal of spreading the word about all the great things that nurses are doing :)
@JoeGlavin I agree with @TheNerdyNurse that we won't have less responsibilities. In fact, I believe we'll be able to elevate our nursing practice through technology by enhancing our ability to provide additional patient education and having access to peer reviewed resources will augment our own knowledge.
@JoeGlavin I wouldn't say less responsibilities, but may different responsibilities. I also think that technology is going to give us more time to actually spend with patients rather than babysitting paperwork.
@nursefriendly Of course! You're definitely out there promoting us all and helping others "dip their toes" into the social media pool.
