Scrubs Magazine Blog Carnival: Technology In Nursing

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.

    nursefriendly Of course! You’re definitely out there promoting us all and helping others “dip their toes” into the social media realm.

    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.

    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.

    With technology advancing rapidly, are there going to be less responsibilities for RNs in the future?

  9. TheNerdyNurse on August 20, 2014 at 8:49 pm

    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.

  10. innovativenurse on August 20, 2014 at 8:56 pm

    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.
