Nursing practice is currently beset by a number of challenges, including the ageing and more unwell segment of the hospitalized patient population, the financial load of healthcare, and the need to stay current with medical knowledge and technological improvements. These pressures are exacerbated by a growing nurse shortage and an ageing nursing workforce. Nursing practice in the twenty-first century is challenged by a variety of factors, including an increase in the number of elderly and critically ill patients, rising healthcare costs, a shortage of nursing staff and nurse educators, and a shift in the nursing workforce's age. Nurse educators must continually analyse and review education curricula, teaching-learning methodologies, and programs used to prepare new professional nurses in order to adapt to rapidly changing and expanding healthcare settings. To ensure the continuing provision of high-quality, secure, and efficient patient services, the nursing community must keep track of changes in healthcare settings. Nurses must be equipped with the essential skills to accomplish this.
