Nursing informatics

According to AMIA (American Medical Informatics Association), nursing informatics is:

the "science and practice (that) integrates nursing, its information and knowledge, with management of information and communication technologies to promote the health of people, families, and communities worldwide." (IMIA Special Interest Group on Nursing Informatics 2009). The application of nursing informatics knowledge is empowering for all healthcare practitioners in achieving patient centered care.

Nurse informaticians work as developers of communication and information technologies, educators, researchers, chief nursing officers, chief information officers, software engineers, implementation consultants, policy developers, and business owners, to advance healthcare.

AMIA’s Nursing Informatics Working Group serves as the United States’ representative to the International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA) Nursing Informatics Special Interest Group.
