When searching to get into the informatics field of nursing, I see alot of people go through the EMR trainer specialist/tech support position.
Finding what is a proper pay for that position is much harder.
I get numbers all over the place when searching and then trying to index it based on location makes the numbers almost useless.
So my local hospital in florida has an EMR position open that I'm considering.
The job is a salaried position that will be providing tech support for healthcare staff, designing training materials for the upcoming EMR roll out, implementing them, and evaluating their effectiveness. Working with staff to design screens and user interface items for upcoming EMR roll out. Consult with IT and work as a liaison.
So, what does one get paid for this? They require an RN for it. No IT's with health care experience, must have license. No mention of HIT-Pro being required x months of hire.
Also they plan on rolling out in January, is 5 months a suicide mission time wise to design the materials and instruct the staff.
