Why do nursing informatics need to take advanced health assessment?

Just wondering the rational behind it why do I as future nursing informatics who will have no contact with patients need to take advanced health assessment, advanced pharmacology, advanced physiology?

I did a quick search of 3-4 well known institutions curriculum requirements for MSN Informatics and NOT one of them required advanced assessment, pharmacology, or physiology. By no means saying that the program you are attending (interested) does not require it but seems like other regarded national universities seem to agree with you that it's not a requirement. 

Best of luck
