It is evident that the demographical changes being occurred worldwide, rapid population growth, globalization, and environmental problems will have direct impacts on the individuals, and such a situation will bring about ever-greater changes to the healthcare system as a whole, and to the nursing in particular. Futurists have been foresighting that, occupations will be restructured in 2050' s, and that nursing will play a more critical role within the healthcare system. Alongside the futuristic technologies, involving the future developments in the genetics, social media, nanotechnology, and emergence of robot-nurses as well, such global changes, including the environmental changes, increase in the elder population, and emergence of new diseases, will all have direct impacts on nursing, and will change the roles of the nurses. As a result, it is a necessity for the nurse educators to foresee the future of nursing from today, and thereby to train the nurses of the future, who are to think globally, and act regionally. In this article, it is discussed the future of the nursing in the light of futurists' foresight.
