The aim of this essay is to show how technology in nursing can be analysed in order to describe how technology shapes nursing. We take on a sociotechnical approach, where the postphenomenological concepts: mediating, constitution and multistability show how we can study relations that connect humans with social and technological entities in everyday work situations.

We conclude that with the use of postphenomenology we can systematically discuss technology in nursing, and hereby contribute to shaping the use of technology in the profession, enabling technology to interact with the nursing ideals.

Keywords: Technology, Nursing, postphenomenology
