Nursing Informatics (NI) is the gateway between IT, patient care, and the interprofessional clinical team. As a broad specialty ranging from an NI Specialist to a chief nursing informatics officer, it is important that careers in this field are recognized and valued in any healthcare setting. Technology is constantly evolving and these nurses face healthcare IT issues head-on to ensure that consumers and patients alike are receiving the most quality care.
In conjunction with National Nurses Week, this webinar focuses on the various roles of an NI, the value of nursing informatics, and how you identify yourself as nurse-whether you are new to nursing informatics or lead on an executive level. Influence, Inspire, Innovate.
