Nursing informatics is a promising side of nursing but is it worth leaving a floor position to pursue?

If you are leaving your floor job for it, absolutely. I left floor nursing 5 years ago (still do some prn) and enjoy it. However, I would not recommend getting a degree in it unless it's required. The jobs aren't that plentiful. I had a BSN when I started and was working on my Master's in Leadership and Management when I took my current job. I am currently on my way to becoming a Nurse Practitioner, but would love to one day have a job that integrates both NP and Informatics.

Is it worth leaving a floor position to pursue a job in nursing informatics?

what does this mean? That you have a floor job now and you want to quit and then start looking for an NI job? Or do you have an offer for an NI job and you want to leave your current floor job?

If the latter, hell yes, is worth leaving the floor job.
