Nursing Informatics - CASN National Symposium



On November 29th and 30th, 2011, over 50 stakeholders participated in a National Symposium for the CASN project Generating Momentum to Prepare Nursing Graduates for the Electronic World of Health Care Delivery: Engaging Stakeholders, Building Capacity, Mobilizing Curriculum Development. The project's Task Force of champions collected feedback on their draft entry-to-practice registered nursing informatics competencies. CASN presented a draft environmental scan of nursing informatics teaching and learning resources, and identified gaps where additional resources could be developed.The Symposium concluded with three presentations on successful methods for teaching nursing informatics. CASN is excited to finalize the Nursing Informatics Competencies and inventory of teaching and learning resources, and share them with all of our stakeholders within the next 6 months.
