Healthcare organizations are always working to refine the tools used to provide access to patient information, and they need specialists who understand industry-standard tools and software. Nurse informatics experts collect, manage, retrieve and apply healthcare data to improve healthcare and patient care efforts.
What You'll Learn
Our MSN program, with 100% online classrooms, teaches you how to create, design and implement data storage and retrieval systems to improve community health. You will examine the issues (legal, ethical, and public) surrounding healthcare informatics, including regulations, privacy, security, fraud, and compliance, and create plans for continuous improvement within organizations.
You will also prepare for either the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Nursing Professional Development certification or the National League for Nursing’s Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) exam. See sample curriculum here. Find textbooks and materials required for each specific term.
