As the economic condition improves for most of the countries around the world, the demand for healthcare and nursing professionals have increased. However, the supply of the nurses could not keep up with the demand. Although this problem is many-fold, the necessity of nursing education should remain the centre of the discussion. A successful education program should consider both the contents management and the means of delivery, and this paper discusses how knowledge segmentation could be used to improve the nursing education, especially at the practical training stage, and how these knowledge should be distributed among different information sources (including mobile devices), and where nursing education may benefit from mobile learning.
