Abstract:
The most effective way to educate nurses is to integrate a teaching style that promotes interactive learning.  The expectations to apply technology to clinical and course work increases with every generation.  Luckily, new technologies have emerged that make this possible.  Smart devices, such as the iPad, have revolutionized the way nurses learn and practice.  Smart devices serve a wide variety of needs, and can be utilized as: a communication tool among health care providers, medical reference source, clinical calculator, method for student progression tracking, as well as patient education.  In regards to nursing education smart devices can: engage students in simulations, be a reference source for current medical information including the latest evidence based practice, collect and share didactic information, advertise learning opportunities, notify of emergent events, and connect to the community.  Most of this is accomplished through the use of mobile medical applications. Recommendations of mobile applications and their use will be thoroughly discussed in this presentation.

In addition to smart devices, social media is another emerging trend that if utilized properly can enhance the health care industry.  This presentation will discuss social media’s application, advantages, potential for misuse, and recommendations for regulations.  Social media is an endemic part of our world and has changed every aspect of our experiences and social media, especially when paired with mobility, will be a critical aspect of the health care profession.  While the advantages social media and smart technology are endless, there is strong need for guidelines defining appropriate use.  Nursing leaders must set the standard for integrating advances in technology into the nursing profession.
