Outlook for Informatics Jobs

Thanks for the link, Sue. Have been thinking about this area for awhile. Frankly I miss my previous info tech career, since the glow has left the nursing rose.

Right now, if it weren't for home health, I probably wouldn't be working in nursing at all.

Were I to go back to patient care, which I actually miss, I'd go to home health, hospice, or emergency. But never the floor again. I do not fit into the culture which is, well, peculiar.

I have an associates in computer network management and am currently pursuing a BSN. I just recently read about nursing informatics and was quite excited about it. I was wondering if my CNM experience would benefit if I were to steer toward the informatics field. I would appreciate more insight into this career from someone with experience in it for I have yet to meet anyone who knows anything about it.

Thank you,


It would certainly help you, Kelly.

First get some clinical experience. When you get to the floor try to get in with the IT people and get onto a project as a super-user. Nurses who can find the keyboard are a valucable commodity.

As to more insight into this, look at the stickies and read the threads with a lot of responses as they are often this same conversation.
