Getting my foot in the door...

  1. I'm interested in getting some experience to prepare me for the field of the Nursing Informatics. There is a job opening in the HIS department at where I work and I wanted to know, is it a good idea to get some HIS experience to help prepare me for NI?

    Greetings Monielena,

    If you want to work in Medical Records (AKA HIM) sure .......... but I think your interest is in Nursing Informatics, HIT, HIS and not HIM, correct?
    Please do your research about this specialty, read other posts on this forum.......... take a look at this one in particular:
    Health Information Mgt or informatics

    Good Luck!

    I've read the thread twice actually. I went over to ANIA site, but I thought I would ask anyway since there are no NI jobs where currently I live (I plan on moving when I finish my BSN) and I was hoping to get some experience in an adjacent field and bridge over in some way.

    Thank you for answer my question .
