1. According to McGonigle and Mastrian, (2012), the use of simulation to allow students to interact with technology has become part of nursing school curriculum. Simulation in nursing school helps students to learn what is expected in a real clinical situation. Simulations create scenarios where nursing students can manipulate variables and make a clinical decision after seeing the results. 3D simulation can mimic the real clinical situation and encourage students to make decisions they would make at work. Students can learn skills such as blood draws, intravenous or foley insertion, wound care and medication administration with no fear of causing harm. The simulations enable students to learn how to pass medication safely (Harris, Pittiglio,…show more content…
Across the United States of America, hospitals encourage incorporation of technologies in their daily operations.

Harnessing technology such as electronic medical records, use of Pyxis machines, e- scribing and eradicate interoperability between departmental computers can improve daily operation and provide seamless patient care. Tools such as e-library can be used for patient education
