Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly transforming the healthcare industry, and nursing professionals stand to benefit significantly from its integration. This article explores the role of AI in revolutionizing nursing, highlighting its applications, benefits, challenges, and ethical considerations. Drawing on examples from countries actively integrating AI into nursing services such as the United States, the United Kingdom, China, and Japan, the article discusses how AI supports nursing tasks, enhances patient care, and improves healthcare outcomes. Key benefits include early warning systems, predictive analytics, remote monitoring, triage support, and workforce management. Stakeholders play crucial roles in encouraging AI adoption, from education and advocacy to research and policy development. However, challenges such as data privacy, algorithm bias, and ongoing training requirements must be addressed. Ethical considerations related to bias, fairness, and transparency in AI decision-making also require attention. Ultimately, embracing AI’s potential while navigating its challenges is essential for advancing nursing practice and improving patient care in the future of healthcare.

Keywords: Artificial intelligence, nursing, healthcare, revolution, patient care, predictive analytics, remote monitoring, triage, stakeholders, challenges, ethical considerations
