I have a degree in Zoology and a diploma in nursing (Psychiatry nursing). I am interested to take the nursing informatics course.
What does it take to gain admission to any college to train for this course.
Secondly, I live in London; do you know of any university in London that offer this course or can l take the course as an external candidate in any recommended university in the USA.

I've been investigating this specialty for about 6 months. There are two masters programs in the US--Univ. of Utah and Univ. of Maryland in Baltimore for an actual degree in Nursing Informatics. The nurses in Mississppi are getting a masters in Health Informatics because there currently isn't a long distance program. StanFord University offers a short coarse in Medical Informatics via Internet. But no degree,only certificates. The Nursing Informatics group are members of the Medical Informatics Association (AMIA). They have a great web site with education, conferences, journals, etc. There is also an international association (IMIA). You might find some information through them. Good luck in your search.

Duke University and University of Mary both offer Nursing Informatics Degrees. Duke also offers a post masters certificate and U of M offers a certificate. ANA offers national certification in the US.
Here are links to Nursing Informatics organizations in the UK. http://www.shef.ac.uk/~nr1rw/ http://www.lemmus.demon.co.uk/ninfwot.htm http://www.lemmus.demon.co.uk/inf_main.htm
