    I'd like to know about the following topics:

    Regions of the country favorable for NIs
    NIs relationship with other members of the informatics team or IT-in particular, the relationship between NIs and physician informaticists
    Barriers preventing NIs from performing their work
    Roles that NI can serve in (can a NI be a CIO, for instance)
    The impact of accrediting agencies like The Joint Commission on an NI's work (are NI's directly involved in surveys)
    Typical hours of work for newbie NI vs those in the field five years or longer

    I don't know if my topics make sense or are bloggable, but I am hoping you can do something with them.

    Hi! I'm new here. I'm taking pre-requisites for Nursing, mainly because I want to be a Nurse Informatics. I have more than 9 years work experience as a programmer and systems analyst. This week, an adviser discouraged me to take up Nursing because she felt that it's not that type of job that I should do. I told her that I can't lift heavy weights. Do you think, she's right? Are Nurse Informatics required to lift heavy weights?

    Thank you. I appreciate it.

    RNI2011, even though this is not the correct thread for your question, have you taken a look at health information management? The graduate level programs in that discipline offer degrees in health informatics which would qualify you for a number of roles in informatics including CIO. As an RN, I personally feel that anyone who is interested in becoming a nurse ought to be willing and able to take care of patients for a period of time before they jump into administrative or managerial roles designed for experienced nurses. That means working with patients from all walks of life and of all sizes. Check out www.ahima.org and see what you think. A good number of the pre-regs for health information management are the same as nursing. Best wishes.

    Thanks, Mijourney for your suggestions and reply. I appreciate it. The problem here in our place is that we are far from the business district or the big city where you can find schools that offer variety of courses. Living in the country side also prompted me to go back to school since I can't look for an IT job around this area. I'm a military spouse by the way, that's why we moved to places. I'll take a look at the link that you gave and see what can I do. Thank you.

    Do you know what is the minimum lifting weight requirement for a nurse? Thanks.
