Are you thinking about exploring a new nursing specialty? Or have your students been asking which specialties to choose in their future careers? According to Scrubs Magazine, three poised for future growth are informatics, telemedicine, and geriatrics. Why are these the ones to watch? Let's take a look at each.
In today's high-tech hospitals, informatics nurses are indispensable in helping create and analyze software to help make nurses more effective and better trained. A recent article in Scrubs Magazine reported that,
"If you’re an informatics nurse, you could find yourself on a typical day observing and interviewing other nurses to determine what their needs are and help the computer programs make their lives easier. You would also assist in deciding how computers help the patient to receive better care."
With technology growing at an unprecedented pace, nurses and students need to understand informatics and its impact on the health care system. Combining the best-selling text, Nursing Informatics and the Foundation of Knowledge, Second Edition, by Dee McGonigle and Kathleen Mastrian with exciting online learning activities and animations that bring difficult informatics concepts to life, Navigate eFolio: Nursing Informatics and the Foundation of Knowledge is the complete online solution for nursing informatics courses.
