Southern Council on Collegiate Education for Nursing, Atlanta, GA.; Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
The influences of computer technology on college nursing education programs and health care delivery systems are discussed in eight papers. The use of computers is considered, with attention to clinical care, nursing education and continuing education, administration, and research. Attention is also directed to basic computer terminology, computer system design, sources of information on computers, and system costs. Functions of a medical information system are discussed, along with a specific application of computers: the Nursing Education Module Authoring System (NEMAS), which can be used to create instructional modules and to deliver the modules to learners and record their responses. Titles and authors of the papers are as follows: "Computers in Nursing: Where Are the Leaders?" (Richard E. Pogue); "Basics of Computer Technology: Clearing the Crystal Ball" (Gary D. Hales); "Dean's Use of Computer Technology in Administering a Nursing Program" (Billye J. Brown); "Computer-Assisted Instruction in Nursing Education" (Donna E. Larson); "Computer Use in Nursing Service" (Carol A. Romano); "Nursing Education Module Authoring System" (Carole Hudgings); "Drug Therapy Course" (Lucille M. Pogue); and "Survey of Microcomputer Use in Southern Nursing Education" (Audrey F. Spector). (SW)
