Finding my "niche"

by NurseK14 NurseK14 (New) New

I've worked at a LTACH for a year now and I feel that maybe it's time to find something that I can truly say that fits me. I enjoy my current position as a bedside nurse and my coworkers are truly amazing. My goal is to transition into nursing informatics but I don't have the slightest clue on where to start. I know I will eventually have to get a Master's degree in informatics but I would love explore what informatics has to truly offer before taking the dive. Any suggestions?

Check out the American Nursing Informatics Association. They may be a good resource. Does your hospital have an IT department? Are there informatics nurses you can shadow on your day off?
