I've been an L&D nurse for about 5 years now, and am starting to really dislike it, mostly because I don't want to do bedside nursing anymore. I used to work with computers (doing low-end graphic design/desktop publishing and digital output) and I'm considering a career path in nursing informatics, because I like the idea of information management, organization and research. Many people on this site have recommended becoming a super user, but how does one do that? My hospital is about to start converting to computerized patient charts, and the L&D department has asked for people who want to "be involved in the initiative" (more details weren't given), so I signed up my name.... Last year our department went from paper charting to a temporary computerized charting system (OBIX) but they never had any super users. I know this conversion is going to happen over the next year, but I don't know how much computer stuff we'll actually get to do. My brain tells me to wait it out and see, but I also feel like I can't handle another day in L&D and have even applied for case management positions, just to get out of L&D. So how else can I get to be a super user? Any suggestions? Thank you, anyone!
