graduated, now what?

Specializes in orthopedic; Informatics, diabetes. Has 8 years experience.

So I now have an MSN in Informatics. What do I do now? I do not want to be an EPIC builder/trainer. My organization is not funding a lot of positions yet. I have a contractual agreement to stay for a while related to tuition assistance. Not that I want to leave anyway-love where I work. Just have to come up with a position. I think I need to create my own.

Congratulations! I'm happy for you! I'm enrolled in MSN program and curious about Informatics. It's exciting! You will get a long-term career there! You will!

Congrats! I graduated last year and thought I'd have trouble finding a true Informatics job. Got lucky and landed a role in Clinical Informatics in a large teaching hospital that has job duties including teaching, build/design, testing/validation. Our department works closely with IT/IS. It's been awesome, although the learning curve has been steep. Hang in there and don't give up. If possible, look in large teaching hospitals or an EHR company for Nursing/Clinical Informatics roles.

Good Luck

thing is I am AT a large teaching hospital. I am working on trying to find a way to kind of create my own position. I volunteer on most of the informatics committees; getting to know everyone. I really don't want to be an EPIC builder but do want to know more about that end of it.
