Nursing Informatics Committees


The HIMSS Nursing Informatics Community was founded in 2003 in response to the increased recognition of the role of the informatics nurse professional in healthcare information and management systems. This effort was intended to build a community within the HIMSS membership for those individuals with a role in nursing informatics. Its purpose is to articulate a cohesive voice for the HIMSS Nursing Informatics community and to provide domain expertise, leadership and guidance to HIMSS activities, initiatives, and collaborations with the global nursing informatics community. View the Community Fact Sheet and scroll down to learn more about the Task Force and Work Groups.

The community is led by the HIMSS Nursing Informatics Committee which is charged with providing domain expertise, leadership and guidance to HIMSS activities, initiatives and collaborations within the specialty of nursing informatics.
