HLTH11005  Nursing Informatics

An integral component of nursing practice is the processing and handling of data, information and knowledge from which the nurse gains insight, foresight and wisdom needed to support decision making. Information and telecommunication technologies are increasingly being used by nurses to support these information handling activities including evidence based practice. To carry out their professional responsibilities, nurses need to be able to use computers and associated technologies and apply other skills which enable them to obtain, manage and use the desired data, information or knowledge in a timely and effective fashion. This course incorporates learning activities designed to introduce students to these technologies, their use by nurses and enhance students' information literacy skills. Computer skills desirable.
