ANA Revises Informatics Scope, Standards

After more than 6 years, ANA has released its Nursing Informatics Practice Scope and Standards of Practice, which emphasizes nursing informatics competencies and functional areas.

According to ANA, the revisions articulate the essentials of nursing informatics, its accountabilities and activities for both specialists and generalists. Its standards are those by which all nurses practice nursing informatics, and reflect and specify practice priorities and perspectives.

Nursing informatics (NI) integrates nursing science, computer and information science, and cognitive science to manage, communicate, and expand the data, information, knowledge and wisdom of nursing practice.

Nurses trained in NI support improved patient outcomes through their expertise in information processes, structures, and technologies, thus helping nurses and other care providers to create and record the evidence of their practice.

This updated 214-page edition of ANA's scope and standards emphasizes NI competencies and functional areas.

The book's discussion scope of NI practice - its characteristics, development and trends, education and training, its practice environments and settings, its general and specialized practice roles, and its ethical and conceptual roots - lends the context for optimal use of the standards.

While primarily for practicing nurses and nursing faculty and students, the book is also an essential source document for other health informatics, healthcare providers, researchers, and scholars, and those in funding, legal, policy, and regulatory activities.

ISBN-13: 9781558102569. Pub#: 978INFO.
List price $16.95/ ANA member price $13.45
