Nursing Informatics: programming vs network design and security

  1. 0 Hi guys just want to ask if for example I have both a BSN degree and a 2year degree in IT. What specific task should I focus on? Should I enhance my skill in programming or network design?

    If you want to work for a vendor and do programming, sure, enhance your programming skills.

    If you want to work for a hospital and concentrate on their networks or security, sure, enhance your networking skills.

    Keep in mind though, that the majority of nurses working in nursing informatics have never programmed, and that's because they work with proprietary software which has its own tools to configure it, and thus, programming is not really needed.
