Information Age Healthcare Impact on Nursing
  • No longer defined by dispensing knowledge and

    competency frameworks and leadership programmes
  • Learning to Manage Health Information (2009)

17
Taking Nursing Informatics seriously !

    integrates nursing science, computer science, and
    information science to manage and communicate
    data, information, knowledge and wisdom in
    nursing practice.
