The OJNI Scholarship

The Online Journal of Nursing Informatics (OJNI) Scholarship is an opportunity to recognize an individual in conjunction with the release of each published edition. The scholarship was established to ensure continued excellence in disseminating evidence for best practices in nursing informatics and promotes the development of students and continued learners alike.

For the 2018 Spring edition, HIMSS would like to honor Dr. Kathleen Hunter, Professor, MSN Program at Chamberlain College of Nursing LLC, for her continued leadership and effort to enhance the education of nursing informaticists in both her profession and as a volunteer at HIMSS.
