Conference Description
Changes in healthcare management are requiring nurses to be technically competent and able to quickly adapt to using technical tools in their practices. Nurse educators are adapting to this required competency by introducing technology into nurse education curriculum as their budgets will support and their technical skills will allow. The tools to support nurse education rapidly change with new ones constantly surfacing on the horizon, just as is happening in nursing practice. So we have a double mandate: to bring ourselves up to speed with these technical skills as well as maintain our awareness of what technical possibilities are available to expedite quality and consistency in the delivery of our nurse education curriculum.

Contemporary Forums' 4th Annual Emerging Technologies in Nurse Education conference offers a unique opportunity to increase awareness of new technology and experience how to integrate selected techniques into nurse education practices.
