Quote from Matt000
um.... I'm sorry, I dont get what you mean by a speciality in Nursing Field. Does that mean I take Nursing classes first, then later the teachers will start asking which speciality we choose after we learn "nursing generals?"
Sorry for not knowing so much.
Is there an official website that can answer my questions or some of it? I wanna read more about nursing infomatics.
There is no shortcut. You first go to college - preferably a 4-year university where you'll get your Bachelor's degree - and your major will be nursing. You will be a nursing student, do clinicals at the hospital, etc. After graduation, you have to take the state boards (NCLEX) and get your nursing license. Then you will need to work as a nurse for awhile. You can start taking Master's degree classes as soon as you graduate, but you still will need some nursing experience on your resume before you finish your Master's in Nursing Informatics because you will have a hard time getting a job without it. Reason being that nurses who do informatics need to understand nursing and what nurses - especially hospital nurses - do before they can help design computer programs for them.
So you're looking at at least 7 years of education here before you can finish with a Master's in Nursing Informatics. And to answer your questions from another thread, yes this job can be outsourced in the future. ANY computer job can be.
If you aren't interested in actually working as a nurse (even for a few years) then this major isn't really for you, I don't think. Going into computer science or pharmacy right off the bat when you start college might be a better idea if you're more interested in computers or chemistry than nursing. Nursing informatics isn't an easy way to get a computer job in a market where computer jobs are hard to come by. There aren't a ton of jobs out there for this field.
Loyola University Chicago has an Informatics Master's program. Do a Google search and you'll find more schools if you'd like.
