The arrival of information technology has provoked a societal revolution and it has reduced the distance between people across the world, not only in terms of economy and business. For transcultural nursing, information technology could of important opportunities, if skilfully employed within the nursing process improve the caring relationship between nurses and patients with different cultural backgrounds. In transcultural nursing, information technology can be used to share knowledge that facilitates dialogue between health professionals and citizens of different cultures. Information technology affects different areas of nursing care: a) to check for new scientific evidence and update clinical information; b) to improve the organization and structure of the caring processes; c) to deal with and improve transcultural caring relationships. In the field of transcultural nursing, information technology could offer health professionals and patients new opportunities to improve their interaction, and promote a more empowering relationship.
