Nursing Informatics Community

Nursing Informatics integrates the nursing and information sciences to manage and communicate data, information, knowledge and wisdom in nursing practice. 

Our purpose is to articulate a cohesive voice for the HIMSS nursing informatics community and to provide domain expertise, leadership, and guidance to the global nursing informatics community.

Learn - What is Nursing Informatics?

Nursing informatics (NI) is a specialty that integrates nursing science, computer science, and information science to manage and communicate data, information, knowledge, and wisdom in nursing practice. NI supports consumers, patients, nurses, and other providers in their decisionmaking in all roles and settings. This support is accomplished through the use of information structures, information processes, and information technology.
