I'm an RN/BSN with about 4 years ED experience looking to work towards transitioning into Informatics and want to learn the best way to do so. I currently have no IT experience/education but am very comfortable and competent with computers and tech.
I'm on my hospital's informatics council, but haven't gotten to participate due to my work schedule, but will make this a priority in the upcoming future.
As far as education, I gather that experience > an MSN. When I looked at my nursing school's website, they offer a 2 semester "Healthcare Informatics Certification
" - is there any value to this?
So other than the council, and possibly some education, what else should I be doing? What is a day to day NI job like? Any other information would be super helpful too. Thank you.
