About Nursing Informatics & Technology: A Blog for All Levels of Users

While critical thinking is arguably still the most important skill in nursing, technological knowhow is probably a close second, and is an essential complement to critical thinking. From telemetry to PDAs, from scheduling to EHRs, nurses are surrounded by technology and the more they are involved in its creation, implementation and integration, the more useful they will find the tools - and the better care they can provide patients. The purpose of this blog is to engage nurses in conversation about how technology is used in nursing. Both technophobes and uberusers will learn from a group of bloggers who are immersed in healthcare informatics, technological development and implementation.
