i have a question please

  1. Do you think an IT-based nursing education is relevant to nursing? Because as far as I know, nursing aides and caregivers nowadays use computers for their work as nurses. Can you please give me its pros and cons? Another, can you like give me an example of equipments related with computers that are used as medical equipments nowadays?

    Thank you. I would really appreciate it if you can reply to this.

    Almost every person working in a hospital in america has to be able to use Microsoft word, windows and e-mail. Basic understanding of using a computer will help anyone coming to the US to work. Each machine we use is different as each hospital uses different brands of IV pumps, blood glucose testing machines, PCA pumps, Dynamaps etc. You will get on the job training for these items. Not all hospitals use computer charting and hospitals provide on the job training if they use it.
    Hope that helps.:spin:
