What are Informatics Nurses and why do they hold such importance in the healthcare setting? As the mediators between both patient care and health IT, these clinicians are vital for the successful delivery of care. Whether you are in the beginning stages of your nursing career or seasoned in the field, this webinar will demonstrate the value of a nurse informaticist in any care setting. In conjunction with National Nurses Week, learn about the foundations of nursing informatics, the value they hold in both health IT and the healthcare setting, and ways that healthcare organizations can use to develop an engaged nursing informatics culture. Inspire, Innovate, Influence.
