Introduction

Nurses at the baccalaureate level in all practice areas are involved in nursing
informatics through interaction with information management and patient care
technologies. Nurses must not only demonstrate knowledge of and skills in health
information and patient care technologies, but also how to use these tools at the
bedside and organizational levels. Moreover, nurses need to recognize how information

gathered from various health information sources can impact decision making at the
national and state regulatory levels.

Preparation

As you begin to prepare this assessment, you are encouraged to complete the Team
Perspectives of the Nurse Informaticist activity. Completion of this will help you succeed
with the assessment as you explore the nurse informaticist’s role from the different
perspectives of the health care team. Completing activities is also a way to demonstrate
engagement.

To successfully prepare for this assessment, you will need to complete these
preparatory activities:

● Review assessment resources and activities.
○ Review the focus of the new nurse informaticist position you will

propose by examining the Assessment 01 Supplement: Nursing
Informatics in Health Care [PDF]

○ Download Assessment 01 Supplement: Nursing Informatics in
Health Care [PDF]

○ resource.
○ Conduct independent research on the nursing knowledge and skills

necessary to interact with health information and patient care
technology.

○ Focus your research on current resources available through
peer-reviewed articles, professional websites, government
websites, professional blogs, wikis, job boards, and so on.

● Consult the BSN Program Library Research Guide for help in identifying
scholarly and authoritative sources.

● Interview peers in your network who are considered information technology
experts.

○ Ask them about how information technology advances are
impacting patient care at the bedside, at the organizational level,
and beyond.

Scenario

For this assessment, assume you are a nurse attending a meeting of your state’s
nurses association. A nurse informaticist conducted a presentation on her role and its
impact on positive patient and organizational outcomes in her workplace. You realize
that your organization is undergoing many technological changes. You believe this type
of role could provide many benefits to your organization.

● Review the focus of the new nurse informaticist position you will propose by
examining the Assessment 01 Supplement: Nursing Informatics in Health
Care [PDF]

● resource.

You decide to pursue proposing a nurse informaticist role in your organization. You
speak to your chief nursing officer (CNO) and human resources (HR) manager, who ask
you to prepare a 4–5 page evidence-based proposal to support the new role. In this
way, they can make an informed decision as to whether the addition of such a role could
justify the return on investment (ROI). They need your proposal before an upcoming
fiscal meeting. This is not an essay, but instead, it is a proposal to create a new
Nurse Informaticist position.

One important part of this assessment is the justification of the need for a nurse
informaticist in a health care organization and references from relevant and timely
scholarly or professional resources to support the justification for creating this nurse
informaticist position. The term justify means to show or prove that the nurse
informaticist position brings value to the organization. This justification must include
evidence from the literature to support that this position will provide a return on
investment for the organization.

Proposal Format

The chief nursing officer (CNO) and human resources (HR) manager have asked you to
include the headings below in your proposal and to be sure to address the bullets
following each heading. Remember that you will emphasize the focus of the new nurse
informaticist position as described in the Assessment 01 Supplement: Nursing
Informatics in Health Care [PDF]
