How will you further prepare yourself to facilitate the learning of your students to become savvy, well-informed, and technologically competent providers of nursing care?
Your Nursing Informatics Competencies
This module has provided you with the opportunity to explore the world of healthcare informatics and to appreciate the need for ensuring that graduate nurses are prepared to enter the world of technology in healthcare. Your obligation as a nurse educator is to develop your own knowledge, skills, and attitudes concerning healthcare informatics and its relation to patient safety and quality of care. Then reflect on the kind of nurse educator you wish to be in terms of the feedback you will provide to your learners. How will you provide authentic assessment? What does “Feed Forward” mean to you and how will you provide this kind of feedback?
