Literature Review of Technology in Nursing

A well-prepared literature review documents the current knowledge on a selected practice topic and may indicate whether the findings are ready to be incorporated into practice. The purpose of the literature review, using peer-reviewed published research, is to summarize key findings of research that promotes the use of technology and telecommunications in nursing. In this assignment, you will gain the experience of conducting a literature review of a selected topic on the use of technology and telecommunications in health care.
