Nursing Education and the Technology Revolution
Bernier, Sharon
Community College Journal, v75 n2 p18-21 Oct-Nov 2004
At one time, it was believed that Information Technology (IT) was a specialty in nursing that should be offered at the graduate education level. Programs were offered at some of the more progressive colleges and universities. Graduates of these programs became highly-prized in industry and education. Now, educators and industry recognize that nurses from undergraduate nursing programs must have skills that allow them to navigate the information technology systems from the bedside to the home. The present health care environment expects new graduates to have certain information technology skills at the time of first employment. The author contends that nursing programs need to incorporate information technology into their curricula to ensure that graduates stay current with the changing needs.
