I got selected at work to be trained as a certified trainer at the end of July (two weeks). We are about to transition to Epic and a lot of other bigger facilities in my network have already gone live with it. Supposedly, we will be trained and then we will be teaching blocks of classes, three days at a time after the training.
For those who have gone through the training, do you have any tips as to how I should prepare for this role? I will be part of the "go live" process, training etc. and I will be returning to my normal nursing duties once the transition has been completed.
My goal has always been to transition to Nursing Informatics eventually and this is the first opportunity I have had to put my foot in the door. Initially, I applied to be a superuser but when this on opened up, I informed them of my interest right away!
I am just nervous a bit because I am one of the newer nurses on the floor. I was a teacher at a former life and I have had experience with staff training but the environment here is ..different and personalities are very varied. So I would like to prepare and to do a wonderful job fulfilling my role. Hopefully, I will have more chances like this or eventually if I do change hospitals, it will be at a job that is within this specialty.
Thank you very much!
