The Influences of Technologies on Our Decisions
The world of technology is ever-evolving and has proven to be part of everything we do in our
daily activities more than it did some years ago. For nurses, many of the technological changes in

technologies that promote care coordination, patient self-management, and community health.
The nursing specialty that integrates nursing science, computer science, and information science
to manage, communicate data, information, knowledge, and wisdom in nursing practice is called
nurse informatics (McGonigle & Mastrian, 2018).

record by maintaining a digital log of all medications administered to a patient at a facility by a
healthcare professional; it is an alternative to using paper-based MAR charts.

cardiac medications, first assessing blood pressure and or heart rate before administering
