I have been teaching nursing for over 20 years. I teach pediatric nursing, nursing informatics, and community nursing. My main interest is in bringing technology to nursing practice and nursing education. Technology has always been part of nursing assessment but only recently have nurses begun to use it to augment practice. Medicine and nursing education have traditionally emphasized memorization in learning. I believe that there is too much for anyone to memorize. Students need to learn how to find information as they need it. Technology offers a way for this access through handheld computers, formally called PalmPilots or Personal Digital Assistants. This blog will be a place to explore these ideas of how technology can complement nursing practice.
