Nursing Informatics in the Classroom
This 13 module (39 credit) course introduces nursing educators, scholars, leaders, and students to the theory, application, technical skills and process of integrating nursing informatics into nursing education and practice. Learners will create lessons, portfolios, documents, assignments and learning plans which integrate nursing informatics theory and skills into both the content and the mode of learning (whether linguistic, visual, kinesthetic, spatial, and so on). This course entails 39 instruction hours, equivalent in length to a standard 3 credit college course. This course is personalized, self-paced and taken entirely online in the privacy and comfort of your own home or office. You will receive one to one interaction with your instructor and your modes of assessment and study will be fine-tuned to suit your personal learning styles, preferences and needs.
