In my job at HIMSS, I curate resources to guide, inform and inspire nurses of all specialties – and want to get this journal onto your “required reading” list.

Over the years (twenty-two to be exact), nurse leaders from across the globe have utilized the Online Journal of Nursing Informatics (OJNI) to share their insights and successes on specific studies that have improved the overall well-being of their patients and organizations. These authors all have the same vision in mind: to inspire their peers who are passionate about nursing informatics.

Robust

With the number of practicing nurses around the world, it is inevitable that nurses will face similar challenges in the workplace. Not only is the OJNI a platform to gain more knowledge, it is a way where nurses can connect and learn from one another. Putting scientific evidence and data aside, authors paint a story of how they overcame real-life obstacles in their organizations. By implementing experiments and studies, these nurse leaders aspire to help other nurses who may be asking the same questions in their workplace. With topics spanning from artificial intelligence to advancement in telemedicine, there is always something new to learn.

Relevant

Every manuscript published in the OJNI offers a thoughtful addition to the nursing informatics body of knowledge. Published three times a year, the OJNI supports all functional areas of nursing informatics at all career levels. Especially for those who are new to the field and yearn to gain more insight and knowledge, this journal is a great way to leverage topics that are currently relevant in the nursing informatics field.

Reputable

Powered by the HIMSS Foundation and the HIMSS Nursing Informatics Community since 1996, the journal is a free, international, peer-reviewed publication with readership spanning in over 49 countries. The “star-studded” list of peer reviewers is also astounding; there are currently 25 peer reviewers who also hold a distinguished title at their respective organizations. Through the peer review process, these editors ensure that articles hold the highest quality to be published amongst their peers.
