Question: What are the implications for new nurses entering practice regarding this topic?
The implications are that nurses entering practice will be challenged with a multitude of changes from evidence based practice, to reimbursement of care issues, information security standards, the continued development of nursing specific standardized languages and developments in nursing research all intertwined with Nursing Informatics. New grads face a clinical world that is data rich and information poor with little or no basic computer or database (educational preparation provided from their schools of Nursing)skills. New grads report that they feel ill prepared for this technoclinical brave new world.
