Indeed, technology is changing the world at warp speed and nowhere is this more evident than in healthcare settings. This article identifies seven emerging technologies that will change the practice of nursing ; three skill sets nurses will need to develop to acquire, use, and integrate these emerging technologies; and four challenges nurse leaders will face in integrating this new technology. While myriad forces are changing the face of contemporary healthcare, one could argue that nothing will change the way nursing is practiced more than current advances in technology.

Citation Manager Abstract Supportive nursing leadership is important for the successful introduction and implementation of advanced practice nursing roles in Canadian healthcare settings. For this paper, we drew on pertinent sections of a scoping review of the literature and key informant interviews conducted for a decision support synthesis on advanced practice nursing to describe and explore organizational leadership in planning and implementing advanced practice nursing roles.
Leadership strategies that optimize successful role integration include initiating systematic planning to develop the roles based on patient and community needs, engaging stakeholders, using established Canadian role implementation toolkits, ensuring utilization of all dimensions of the role, communicating clear messages to increase awareness about the roles in the organization, creating networks and facilitating mentorship for those in the role, and negotiating role expectations with physicians and other members of the healthcare team.
Leaders face challenges in creating and securing sustainable funding for the roles and providing adequate infrastructure support. Introduction Nursing leaders play a key role in shaping the nursing profession to be more responsive to our changing healthcare system.
In Canada, nursing leaders can be, but are not limited to, chief executives; frontline, middle and senior managers; administrators; professional practice leaders; leaders in regulatory bodies; government officials; and policy makers.
Important qualities of effective nursing leaders include being an advocate for quality care, collaborator, articulate communicator, mentor, risk taker, role model and visionary Canadian Nurses Association [CNA] This is a challenging era for both nursing and healthcare because of complex issues such as inadequate funding, health human resource shortages and the increasing need for services for our aging population.
Effective planning and implementation of advanced practice nursing roles in healthcare settings have the potential to help address these challenges. Advanced practice nursing is an umbrella term for both clinical nurse specialist CNS and nurse practitioner NP roles. NPs are "registered nurses with additional educational preparation and experience who possess and demonstrate the competencies to autonomously diagnose, order and interpret diagnostic tests, prescribe pharmaceuticals and perform specific procedures within their legislated scope of practice" CNA b: Core advanced nursing practice dimensions include direct patient care, research, leadership, consultation and collaboration CNAbut considerable variability exists across advanced practice nursing roles in terms of time spent in each activity.
CNSs and NPs work in a variety of practice settings and have gained some traction in the Canadian healthcare system since their first introduction in the s Kaasalainen et al.
However, many obstacles continue to impede their full integration DiCenso et al. The integration of advanced practice nurses APNs into healthcare systems has relied heavily on nursing leaders at the national, provincial, regional and local organizational levels.
At the national level, nursing leaders in government and professional associations have supported the integration of APNs in Canada in a number of ways.
This paper will focus on the roles of nursing leaders at the organizational level in facilitating the integration of CNSs and NPs in healthcare settings.
