The wave of technology use in nursing is ever flowing. New technologies emerge: Some are accepted, implemented and widely used, and others are not.

It focuses on successfully making the transition from student to professional nurse, minimizing legal risks, social media in health care, and other aspects of nursing which occur at and away from the bedside.
