How do you become a nurse informaticist? How did you transition from nursing to management, then from management to focusing on IT? Are there guidelines to follow in a nursing clinical career to transition to both informatics and to a leadership position? Meaning, how do you find the path to follow in terms of the number and types of jobs?
