Dr. Jing Wang is the Dean and Professor at Florida State University College of Nursing and is focused on bringing a high-tech, high-touch approach to patient care in the education of nurses. The idea is to leverage technology and digital health tools to support nurses so that they can spend more quality time with patients. The newest generation of students are digital natives, and one goal is to help them use that knowledge to smooth the transition for the less technology savvy.

Jing explains, "I think it's all about how technology is introduced into the learning in our current nursing education and health profession education. That is critically important. That's what we are doing here at Florida State University College of Nursing. We would like to do it in the right way, to introduce technology as a tool to enhance care and facilitate care versus this is a fancy technology, we must use it. I think that's core, and that's the attitude that we are hoping our graduating students will have."

"We have launched a new Institute on Digital Health and Innovation. It's very exciting that we are launching our first design sprint. We're bringing students all together for them to work 24 non-stop to focus on solutions with people who build homes, people who design homes, people who take care of seniors, and people who focus on wellness. This includes doctors, nurses, and social workers. How can we design this home that is a future aging-in-place home that would consider all of the aspects for our seniors or adults who would like age-in-place?"
