Nursing Informatics Competencies
Todays fast-paced health care environment demands nurses to be skilled not only in their clinical practice or specialty area but in the use of technology tools that improve practice and lead to better patient care. Basic and advanced technology competencies are required and expected as technology increasingly touches and changes the job of every nurse. Numerous organizations including the American Nurses Association (ANA) the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) and Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) have developed nurse-specific technology competencies. The challenge for nurses is to identify both needs and training opportunities.
