I am in the process of getting RN licenses by endorsement/reciprocity to Oregon and Washington. I would like to know if what organizations are currently using EPIC and/or planning to go-live in the near future? I know Providence so far is getting involved with EPIC, but what about Swedish, UW, Franciscian, Kaiser?? I have been an EPIC super user and prefer to work at a hospital using EPIC when I relocate sometime in the near future.
Also, I plan to go to graduate school for nursing informatics.. Are any of the above organizations supportive in nursing informatics and foster career growth into the field? I am not asking information in how do I get into the field or how to get a job since that is already addressed frequently in this forum. I will continue to work as a floor RN while going PT/FT for a MSN in nursing informatics but it would be helpful to know what hospitals are using EPIC and has been known to support their employees growing into informatics. Some are better than others. I will also post a thread about EPIC in the regional forums.
Any information will be appreciated.
