Hi all, introducing myself. I'm curently doing my Bachelor of Nursing degree at UNITEC, in Auckland New Zealand, half way through my second year. (18 months to go, whew!).
Been reading some of the discussions on the board. Interesting to note that nurses are so superstitious or is that only in the northern hemisphere? I've only done two hospital rotations so far for clinical practice training, and I've not yet come across any or heard any mention them. I'm oblivious to the "Q" word but reading all the threads I'm guessing at it.
My reason for entering is, this is part of an assignment for a paper titled Information Systems in Nursing. We are required to identify a topic associated with the use of contemporary computerised technologies in nursing and the implications of this for nursing. Some of the topics are: Nursing informatics, Nursing discussion groups, Health online, Computerised patient records (and the ethics legalities of these), Virtual nursing and heaps heaps more. Any info anyone can give will be much appreciated.
