Abstract

Technology changes the face of science and, ultimately, nature. How do we as nurses come to know technology? Nurses' ways of knowing, as described by Carper, help nurses better understand technology as a way of knowing; that is, using empirical, ethical, personal, and esthetic ways of knowing provides a means to incorporate technology into holistic nursing practice. Knowledge of technology also requires considering clients' and families' multiple facets of knowing. The article summarizes the nature of technology, nurses' ways of knowing in the context of genetic technology, and the rationale for understanding clients' and families' ways of knowing.
