Nursing Informatics Competencies
Today’s fast-paced health care environment demands nurses to be skilled not only in their clinical practice or specialty area but in the use of technology tools that improve practice and lead to better patient care. Basic and advanced technology competencies are required and expected as technology increasingly touches and changes the job of every nurse. Numerous organizations, including the American Nurses Association (ANA), the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA), and Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), have developed nurse-specific technology competencies. The challenge for nurses is to identify both needs and training opportunities.
In this Discussion, you identify the role informatics plays in your professional responsibilities. You pinpoint personal gaps in skills and knowledge and then develop a plan for self-improvement.
Review Nursing Informatics: Scope and Standards of Practice in this week’s Learning Resources, focusing on the different functional areas it describes. Consider which areas relate to your current nursing responsibilities or to a position you held in the past. For this Discussion, identify one or two of the most relevant functional areas.
Review the list of competencies recommended by the TIGER Initiative. Identify at least one skill in each of the main areas (basic computer competencies, information literacy competencies, and information management competencies) that is pertinent to your functional area(s) and in which you need to strengthen your abilities. Consider how you could improve your skills in these areas and the resources within your organization that might provide training and support.
By Day 3
Post the key functional area(s) of nursing informatics relevant to your current position or to a position you recently held, and briefly describe why this area(s) is relevant. Identify the TIGER competencies you selected as essential to your functional area(s) in which you need improvement. Describe why these competencies are necessary and outline a plan for developing these competencies. Include any resources that are available to you within your organization and the ways you might access those resources. Assess how developing nursing informatics competencies would increase your effectiveness as a nurse.

1- How many ways can understanding religious rituals and history be helpful in the human services field? How about in Nursing?
You mention community as a reason for religion and most religions do provide a sense of community. Today many people are getting their need for community met in ways other than through religion. For instance, many families have their children on club sports teams. The parents and children are all involved in the team. The parents sit together at practices and games. They have a goal to see the team and their children do well. They also work together (like having a car wash) to raise money for uniforms and tournaments.
2-Is there something different about the feeling of community that one gets in a religion from what soccer moms feel?
3-What is meant when God is said to be transcendent or immanent? How do you view God; is he transcendent or immanent and how does he exhibit this?
4-Interfaith Definitions of Religion in your own words define religion?
5-Religion women are gods?
