Nurses use and encounter technology in nearly every aspect of their profession. What does it mean to be technologically competent and caring as a nurse? How does technology support nursing work? How does it hinder nursing work? How can nurses care for their patients as technological advancements are introduced nearly every day? Technological Competency as Caring in Nursing: A Model for Practice provides insight and answers into how nurses can and must be both technologically competent and caring as they provide meaningful and essential nursing care. Locsins work is obviously guided by the question asked by thoughtful nurses everywhere: How can I satisfactorily reconcile the idea of competent use of technology with the idea of caring in nursing? The chapters in this book significantly embellish a practical understanding of the solution offered by the Locsin model, and indeed, enrich the practical value of all of the general theories of nursing that are grounded in caring. Savina O. Schoenhofer, RN, PhD Professor, Department of Graduate Nursing Alcorn State University, Natchez, Mississippi, USA, Technological competency as caring in nursing is a critical process of knowing persons wholeness. Dr. Locsins book explores, clarifies, and advances the conception of technological competency as caring in nursing. His book is essential to modeling a practice of nursing from the perspective of caring in nursing and a practical illumination of excellent nursing in a technological world.
