Abstract

This issue commemorates the remarkable 25-year span of MCN, a journal born at the dawn of the microcomputer revolution. Key events in computer history and nursing informatics are chronicled, followed with visions of future technologies. A review of the technology literature published in MCN is summarized. Clinical implications include four nursing strategies for integrating electronic technology into practice and a list of online information resources.
