I'm in my first year of a BSN program and am taking my first informatics course this semester. Can someone explain to me exactly what informatics is? We've already had a few classes, but I honestly can't say that I even understand what we are supposed to be talking about. I'm not sure if my prof is a scatter brain, or if all the things we are talking about is informatics? We've basically discussed how to do research and nursing classifications... I'm confused.
