Nursing Informatics – A Career for Now and the Future

As the demand for nurses continues to grow, nursing informatics offers an employment path of value now - and in the decades ahead, especially for young professionals seeking the next step in their own career journey.

Forbes writer Jeff Kauflin covers leadership, management and careers for the publication. He discussed nursing informatics with HIMSS North America’s Vice President of Informatics, Joyce Sensmeier, MS, RN-BC, CPHIMS, FHIMSS, FAAN in Here's A Growing Job That Earns More Than $100K: The Nurse Technologist, which appeared on June 14 in his online column.

“Demand is growing rapidly for nurse informaticists, a role that combines traditional nursing with expertise in systems, analysis and design and has an average salary of more than $100,000. The explosion of tech in healthcare has spawned this surge in demand,” said Kauflin in the Forbes article.

Sensmeier confirmed the demand for nurse informaticists citing the educational and professional paths to follow and data from the 2017 Nursing Informatics Workforce Survey.
