Nursing Informatics Education: Past, Present, and Future
Today’s health care environment continually places increasing demands on nurses to communicate, share, and synthesize information and data through the use of information systems, with or without the assistance of computers (Chapman et al., 1994; Ngin and Simms, 1996). Nurses who are computer literate, in addition to having knowledge of information systems, have the opportunity to use the power and efficiency of computer systems to play an important role in enhancing patient care delivery and shaping nursing practice.
