I saw a position in our newspaper for an informatics RN and I applied. My background before nursing was as a business analyst working closely with IT. Anyway, it is at an Endo ASC. She says they are implementing new EMR and decided they want a nurse to manage this process and be a resource and training person. She said she thinks it will continue to be a valued position even after the initial implementation d/t ongoing needs. But, they want an RN so she/he can orient to pre and post procedure and be able to work there when the informatics stuff is not busy.
I have no endo experience and I'm not ACSL. I currently work outpatient oncology so I start lots of IVs, which seems to be a plus for this manager.
Just looking for some insight. Anyone ever heard of a job like this?
