Nursing is going to be changing just as everything else is due to the advancements in technology. Seven key components that nurses lack now will have to be integrated into their education to better understand the new technology developed into their career. Tools that will be developed will proceed with more accuracy than the tools used now.

Some key advancements in genetics and genetics and genomics; tools will be less invasive and more accurate to make diagnosis and treatment; 3-D printing; robotics; biometrics; electronic health records are some of the advancements that are going to cause the information easier to analyze the data.

genetics and genomics give benefits to the customers because many diseases and health conditions can be found in the genes so advancement here would seem very important to the medical field. The only problem with this is that a nurse usually has minimal education with the study of genetics. The idea of making less invasive tools and more accurate tools to make diagnosis and treatment decisions comes as a benefit to many patients for they will lower costs and reduce risks, the only problem for a nurse would having to be able to stay on her toes with all the changes made in technology. 3D printing can build a model up layer by layer to show how each human tissues and organs looks and can be used for the replication of those body parts.There is many people who do not like this idea because it contradicts their ethics or morals.

Technology is a critical component of the medical field. Though, it is very dependent for medical students to fall back on, many consultants want it to be introduced and meshed in with nursing education in a major way.

Chandler poole, a nurse practitioner from the university of Alabama has said it is equally important to know the treatment and patient as it is to know how to handle the technology. One way her school is trying to contribute technology integration in education is by exposing students to products already in use. It is supposed to give students an advantage and insight.

One of the new ways technologies is working is by including not only advanced medical technologies but including a more simple product that many people use in todays real world... the iPad. The ipad along with other simple products make it easier for doctors and nurses to communicate in the hospital over a patient. The only problem the that most students and observers are seeing is the comfortability of it all.

Technology is having a negative connotation with it, because it is being viewed as an business goals rather than patients benefit. Due to that many of the hospitals are viewing new technologies as a high additional cost rather than a boost for the patients health care and the nurses obligations.

Another problem many are witnessing is that since technology is always changing many it is not considered a high priority to update their technology. Also most training is for these news technologies is done by senior managers, who most of the time are unfamiliar to the scene of care setting and the set up process. Which can make many nurses and others in the medical field weary of how to operate and work the new technologies from day to day basis. This is something that is highly overlooked when updating nurses on technology.

Technology is designed for nurses to advance their ability to take care of patients. How ever, it may make it easier for gaining access to patient care it does not necessarily make it easier for the nurse operating the technology. In medical practice it is highly important to develop systems that provide a nurse with feed back and nursing care and patient outcomes.
