    I've been boad certified in Nursing Informatics for 8 years and set as another career goal to obtain my CPHIMS in 2008 and I did it Friday!!!!

    Per the HIMSS website:

    CPHIMS status provides both internal and external rewards. As a Certified Professional in Healthcare Information and Management Systems, you:

    Enjoy the pride of recognition of knowing that you are among the elite in a critical field of healthcare; and Have a premier credential based on a sound assessment to distinguish yourself in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

    That is great news. It looks like I will be training as a superuser at our system. Is there such a thing as formal courses that are non-credit/informational that don't cost tons of money?! Something that may lead up to certification or simply be useful for us on the job trainees:typing?!

    There are medical, healthcare and nursing informatics courses for credit and adult education (without credit) courses out there.

    That all depends on what you mean by "cost tons of money. Try doing an Internet search for: "Nursing Informatics courses"

    It also depends on exactly what it is you are seeking to learn about - computer basics, the fundamentals of nursing informatics, system life cycle, change management, what?

    I'd suggest you do your research and start by reading nursing informatics (NI) books that can provide you with the basic and fundamental concepts of the specialty. Do a search on Amazon.com using the terms "Nursing Informatics" and "Healthcare Informatics" Search this forum and you'll also find several recommended NI texts.
    Related to being a supper user at your organization you will find that the priority will be becoming an expert user of the system, being involved in the implementation process by perhaps being able to teach the system to others (train the trainer methodology) and or being able to trouble shoot simple system problems and communciate system issues to IT/IS. These priorities are far different than learning and mastering informatics concepts and principles.
    Good Luck
