Abstract: It is expected that in the near future, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics will contribute to the substitution of various professional specialties, such as teachers, lawyers and health practitioners -doctors and nurses. In the Health Sector, in particular, the involvement of Robotics is increasing, mainly in nursing practice and care provision, including diagnosis of diseases, surgical procedures, providing care, administering medication, as well as rehabilitation issues for the elderly. Also, an important aspect of the relationship that is created between nursing practice and robotics is the status that the duties and obligations of modern nurses will achieve. But due to this dialectical relationship raises several questions: What are the consequences of these new data and relationships? What are the prospects for these important developments in the human sciences, and in health in particular? What is the moral status of modern Nursing Officers during and after the Robotic Age?
