- 0Feb 27, '99 by Adenuga AdetayoI 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.

- 0Apr 18, '99 by JelleaI'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.
