The delivery of healthcare services, where distance is a critical factor, by all healthcare professionals using information and communication technologies for the exchange of valid information for diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease and injuries, research and evaluation, and for continuing education of healthcare providers, all in the interests of advancing the health of individuals and their communities. Tele nursing refers to the use of telecommunication and information technology for providing nursing services in health care whenever a large physical distance exists between patient and nurse. Tele-nursing can reduce the requirement for, or the length of hospital stays. Adults with chronic conditions who need frequent monitoring, assessment, and maintenance but do not meet home care criteria or have no money to pay for services can be benefitted from technology. The result is a decrease in total health care costs and increased access to health care with more appropriate use of resources. Although telenursing brings great advantages for both patients and personnel in the form of, for example, resource and time allocation and improved patient access, it might also entail ethical difficulties.
