More than six years after becoming law, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) remains heavily litigated. Since 2010, dozens of lawsuits have been lodged against it, with four of them reaching the United States Supreme Court – a remarkable number given the law’s relatively short lifespan and the fact that the Court only grants approximately 80 of the 8,000 case petitions it receives each year. ACA litigation continued apace over the past year, with two new important decisions handed down in May of 2016.

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.
