Artificial intelligence has been developing greatly in the field of medicine. As a new research hotspot of artificial intelligence, deep learning (DL) has been widely applied in the fields of cancer risk assessment, symptom recognition, and cancer detection. Therefore, nursing care issues in terms of consuming time and energy, lower accuracy, and lower efficiency can be solved with applying DL in caring cancer patients. In addition, augmented reality (AR) has great navigation potential through combining computer-generated virtual elements with the real world. Thus, DL ​+ ​AR may facilitate patients with cancer to possess a brand-new model of nursing care that is more intelligent, mobile, and adapted to the information age, compared to traditional nursing. With the advent of the era of intelligent nursing, future nursing models can not only learn from the DL ​+ ​AR model to meet the needs of patients with cancer but also reduce nursing workload, save healthcare resources, and improve work efficiency, the quality of nursing care, as well as the quality of life for cancer patients.
