Nursing Informatics

“Nursing Informatics is a specialty that integrates nursing science, computer science, and information science to manage and communicate data, information, and knowledge in nursing practice. Nursing informatics facilitates the integration of data, information and knowledge to support patients, nurses and other providers in their decision-making in all roles and settings. This support is accomplished through the use of information structures, information processes, and information technology.”
(ANA Scope and Standards of Nursing Informatics Practice, 2001, pg vii)

Here is a list of resources that are available and are specific to trends in informatics and education:

The partners listed on the HITS project have seminars and conferences available that focus on the use of technology and education.

Additionally, projects that other schools have done in the last year are available on this page (some really innovative ideas on encorporating technology in nursing education): http://www.hits-colab.org/2008_Projects.htm
