In the next decade, artificial intelligence (AI) will have a significant impact on nursing. AI is already enabling new applications and improving patient outcomes while reducing costs. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows, however; there are some challenges to overcome before AI can play its full role in healthcare.

1 preparing for the AI future.
Health care is going through a major shift. The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) technology has been the subject of much discussion in recent years, and how it will impact the future of medicine is still up for debate. However, there are certain things we can expect as this new technology takes hold.
In this article, we’ll cover some basic facts about AI and how it will affect nursing jobs. We’ll also talk about what nurses can do to prepare themselves for this rapidly changing field so that they’re ready for whatever comes next.
2 Tools Coming to Nursing
Tools Coming to Nursing
AI has the potential to help nurses do their jobs better. It will allow them to make better decisions, make more accurate diagnoses, and craft more effective treatment plans. In addition, it might even mean that nurses can do more with less—an especially valuable feature in a field where demand for nurses outpaces supply.
3 Barriers to Adoption
Despite its potential, AI is not yet mature and there are many hurdles to adoption. For example, AI is not a panacea. It has inherent limitations and must be used appropriately within the context of human intelligence, judgment, empathy and intuition.
There are also concerns about privacy and security as well as unfair bias in AI models that may disproportionately affect vulnerable populations (e.g., minorities).
4 Understanding AI
AI is a broad term that covers many different types of software. AI is not a human, or a robot, or even a computer: it’s the ability for software to learn and make decisions on its own. The two most common types of AI are machine learning and deep learning, but there are others as well.
AI is also not an algorithm (a set of instructions) or programming language like Python; it’s more like how your brain works: by collecting data through experience over time and making decisions based on what you’ve learned from those experiences.
5 Artificial Intelligence
Artificial intelligence, or AI, is a computer system that mimics human intelligence. It is a subset of machine learning and can be thought of as the most general form of it. Machine learning is itself a subset of artificial intelligence. Yet another way to understand AI is that it is not one technology but rather a collection of technologies with different levels of sophistication and functionality.
AI has been around for decades now but only recently has started to be adopted in mainstream software products and services by large companies such as Google (with their Assistant), Microsoft (with Cortana), Amazon (with Alexa) and Apple (Siri). We are now seeing more and more startups pop up with products focused on advancing this field further
6 Reaping the Benefits of AI
You may have heard about the myriad ways that artificial intelligence can benefit healthcare. But what does this mean for nurses?
If you’re a nurse, you might be wondering how AI will affect your job. Will it take away any of your responsibilities or add to them? The answer is yes – and no. While there are many opportunities for nurses to reap the benefits of AI, there are also some concerns that need to be addressed as well.
7 AI could be a great help to nursing
An AI assistant could help nurses with diagnosis, treatment and patient care. The assistant can be used to monitor the patient and report any abnormalities in real time. It can also provide education to patients on medication or procedures they need to follow after discharge from hospital.
Artificial intelligence is changing the world, and one of the places it’s having a huge impact is in nursing. Nurses are already using tools like Google Assistant to help them do their job better, and we expect this trend to continue as more AI tools become available. There are some barriers to adoption—such as cost and resistance from older generations—but we expect these issues will be overcome with time.
