I am assuming you are a Registered Nurse in the Philippines but that you have never actually practiced as an RN in niether the Philippines or the US? Most roles in nursing informatics require you hold a degree in nursing, a valid RN ( or even LPN/LVN) license and have practiced as a nurse. There are jobs out there within this specialty for non nurses most of those require other clinical speicifc backgrounds - Pharmacy, Lab Technologist, Cardiology or Ultrasound Technologists, etc. Roles within nursing or clinical informatics for non-clinicians are out there but they are few and far between as part of the role would be your credibility as an experienced clinician who has practiced and knows where the other clinicians are coming from. Knows the work flow and issues faced during care delivery and the practice of nursing, medicine, etc.
