    DNP Project site needed ASAP

    Thank you. I don't need a specific geographical location. It all can be done remotely. I need either two ambulatory clinic offices or two hospice offices or two home health offices. Are you in a Doctoral program?

    DNP Project site needed ASAP

    I am a Doctoral Student (DNP - concentration Informatics Leadership) at American Sentinel University. I am in dire need of a site to conduct my DNP Project. I need a multi-office ambulatory clinic, home health or hospice organization that has at least two offices. Each office must have at least 50 clinicians (any combination of RN, LPN/LVN, SN, HHA, CNA, MA, PT, OT, MSW, etc) who use the electronic documentation system. The ambulatory clinics, HH or hospice organization can be located anywhere in the US as the project can be accomplished virtually. I need to conduct my quality improvement project during late November or December of this year - 2019. I can provide additional details and answer any question anyone may have as I have passed my deadline with ASU and am currently in a holding pattern and unable to proceed with the program. Please feel free to pass my request on to anyone you think would be able to provide me with a project site or facilitate same. Thank you Angela Lewis, MBA-IT, RN-BC, FHIMSS 847-530-11253

    New Telemetry system

    I need to speak with a Nurse manager who has recently (last 1-2 years) been involved in the RFP, selection and installation of a telemetry system at a hospital. I am a nurse and a information systems project manager who was just assigned to manage the request for proposal process, budget and selection process for my organization's new telemetry and cardiac monitoring system. Please contact me directly off line. Any and all assistance is appreciated in advance. Angela

    Applying for Online College

    Have you thought about taking on project management, instructional design, ICD 10 or any assignments/project(s) that will add to your leadership skill set? All of the above would work towards "acquiring and building a skill-set that crosses multiple vendor products and platforms"

    Limited EHR program experience

    My questions would be: Other than as an end user do you have any other experience and with which type of clinical applications/software/programs? Specific software/vendor names please. Think you would increase your chances of securing an entry level role depending on how much super user experience you have had and how well you can transition your nursing skills to what is needed to practice as an informatics nurse. Have you participating in any of the building, testing go live or other super user activites at your facility? Have you been a member of any of the implementation, testing, training or post go live optimization teams? There are many of us who got are start without prior experience and learned on the job. Today's environment is very competitive and demanding and many hiring managers want folks with experience who can hit the ground running - that is not saying there are not entry level positions out there, as there are. Strongly suggest you do your due dilligence, use this forum as a one tool to learn more about the speciality, what skills are required and what roles are available. Good Luck

    Can someone give me info on EMR jobs?

    Have you applied to the vendors - Meditech, Epic, Cerner and or McKesson? Consulting companies may also be an option. Good Luck

    I passed my certification exam!!

    It all depends on what geographic location you are looking in, what or if you have any previous informatics experience, whether or not you are willing to take an entry level position, what and how much past clinical experience you have. There is not just one answer to your questions. Please use this forum to learn what other's have shared.

    Does it matter where you get your Masters?

    I know several well established informaticists with degrees from U of Phoenix, Walden, Excelsior, U of Chicago, Northwestern, etc What matters is that the school is accredited and the course content is in line with what you want to do in the specialty.

    Advice On New Job Offer

    Agrees with Traveler4life, This is a wonderful opportunity if your career goals lean towards informatics. You have some clinical experience and you have nursing knowledge so look for a way to work 1 shift per month or something....but take the role with the vendor and learn, learn, learn. Good Luck

    Nursing Informatics or Health Informatics?

    Greetings Paulschwinn, Welcome to the NI Forum. Perhaps the other informaticians that frequent this forum are otherwise occupied with family and leisure activities, this being the weekend and for some the start of PTO/vacation in anticipation of the 4th of July Holiday. To assist you in using the NI forum - Please come out of this post, go to the top of the main NI forum page and click on the "Go to Stickies" button which will scroll you down to content on the difference between NI, medical and healthcare informatics.....and much, much more! To search the NI forum, again return back up to the top of the NI forum page, below "Start a New Topic Now" you will see a magnifying glass and to the right an arrow, click on the arrow and enter in search words (such as advance degree or Masters in healthcare informatics, etc) in the field labeled "Search this section", click on Go. Many of us (myself included as forum moderator) visit and post to this forum in our spare time second only to working full time in our primary roles. Additionally many of us also travel, teach and have multiple responsibilities thereby negating an immediate (or even 24-48 hour) response to posts. Qualities and characteristics needed the most to practice successfully in this specialty are the ability be a proactive, self directed and independent information seeker - one needs to have more than one resource for seeking answers and researching questions. I humbly invite you to read and utilize previous posts and content on this forum for knowledge and answers, as your questions posted here since yesterday might not get a response in a time frame that meets your immediate needs. Be reassured that the questions you have posted above have been asked and answered numerous times. I am confident you will locate a wealth of content. Although, legal questions related to licensure are outside the scope of this forum and its members. Good Luck and have a Wonderful 4th of July Holiday!

    What do CI nurses do?

    Good question Akeos, It all depends on the informatics nurse's specific role. Please utilize this Forum for the wonderful resource it is and read a few of the many posts from practicing informatics professionals. Also if you scroll down to the bottom of the forum. The string entitled: A Day in the Life will give you several different "days in the life" of practicing informatics nurses. Good Luck!

    What do CI nurses do?

    Ewwww what a wonderful question! Clinical Informatics nurses are responsible for insuring clinical input is sought and reflected in decision-making processes related to planning, selection, design, use, evaluation of clinical information systems technologies as applied to patient care and clinical practice. Sorry about the long sentence. Or we could just use the ANA/ANCC definition of Nursing Informatics which reads: Nursing Informatics is a specialty that integrates nursing science, computer science, and information science to manage and communicate data, information, knowledge and wisdom in nursing practice.
