I am in my second year into my BSN RN program. I never heard of this specialty until my professor from the first semester suggested it after she saw my Power point presentation that I formatted it to be like a Jeopardy game show and was impressed with it. Anyway, I have always been a computer person, but not as much as I used to be anymore since school kept me busy. I think I have a raw talent in graphic design more so than any other computer specialty, but I was in the computer science major (more opportunity than graphic design) but then I found out that I enjoy healthcare better. However, I do not want to lose the computer side of me and hope I incorporate two things that I enjoy doing together.
There is not that much information in Informatics and I do not know what to expect. I really don't like analyzing a bunch of numbers and statistics. What I hope to do in Nursing informatics is that to help develop a software to make it user friendly and improve workflow so we can better care for our patients.
If Nursing informatics is not for me, I actually have one strong passion that only pertains to healthcare, which is health promotion. I would love to have a position as patient educator. but this will be posted in a different forum. Thought I just put it out there.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
