	%X Robotic assistance in nursing care is an increasingly
important area of research and development. Facing a shortage of
labor and an increasing number of people in need of care, the
German Nursing Care Innovation Center (Pflegeinnovationszentrum,
PIZ) aims to address these challenges from the side of technology.
Little is known about nurses experiences with existing robotic
assistance systems. Especially nurses perspectives on starting points
for the development of robotic solutions, that target recurring
burdensome tasks in everyday nursing care, are of interest. This
paper presents findings focusing on robotics resulting from an
explanatory mixed-methods study on nurses experiences with and
their expectations for innovative technologies in nursing care in
stationary and ambulant care facilities and hospitals in Germany.
Based on the findings, eight scenarios for robotic assistance are
identified based on the real needs of practitioners. An initial system
addressing a single use-case is described to show perspectives for the
use of robots in nursing care.
