Background: This article presents the perspectives of undergraduate nursing students on telenursing in patient care after simulating three telenursing scenarios using real-time video and audio technology. Methods: An exploratory design using focus group interviews was performed; data were analyzed using qualitative content analysis. Results: Five main categories arose: learning a different nursing role, influence on nursing assessment and decision making, reflections on the quality of remote comforting and care, empowering the patient, and ethical and economic reflections. Conclusions: Delivering telenursing care was regarded as important yet complex activity. Telenursing simulation should be integrated into undergraduate nursing education.
