New Hire Education Tool

 

Week Two

 

Create an educational or training tool for new nursing hires that describes the nurse’s role in the use of informatics and technology.

 

Incorporate at least one theory (nursing theory, informatics theory, change theory, or other supporting theory) that relates to informatics in nursing.

 

Ensure that the educational tool addresses the following points:

 

·      Define nursing informatics.

·      Describe the nurse’s roles and responsibilities in quality data management.

·      Explain why comfort with technology and informatics is important in patient care and administration.

·      Identify ways the new nursing hire may become more comfortable with health care technology.

 

Include a minimum of three peer-reviewed resources, and develop an APA-formatted reference page.

 

Format the educational tool as a matrix, brochure, video, podcast, slide presentation, or another format approved by your facilitator.
