A Message from Our President , Ardie Henry MS, RN-BC

Fall is here and it is time to start thinking about getting back into the swing of things at NENIC.  We are starting off our educational calendar by hosting Patricia Dykes PhD, RN ,FAAN, FACMI on October 2nd where her topic will be, "Using Health IT and Patient Engagement to Improve Outcomes in Hospitalized Patients."  It will be from 5:30 - 7:30 at Newton-Wellesley Hospital- a remote access option will be available. Watch your email for more details.

Take a moment to watch our newest NENIC video (above). It was produced at our annual Trends conference in May. It celebrates the contributions of Nurse Informatician's and our community transforming healthcare through informatics.  Enjoy the video, you just may recognize a colleague!. Also if you did not get to join us at our annual symposium, we have posted a few highlights below and member highlights can be found in the August 2017 edition of Computer Informatics Nursing

Look over Upcoming Events , there is much to plan for this year. Locally NICER is offering a review course for nursing informaticians who are interested in sitting for the ANCC board certification exam.  The first one of these will be on September 30th.  NENIC members are eligible for a $50 discount using a promo code. (It will be emailed to members. Feel free to reach out to me if you did not receive the email. )

Also "Save the Date" for next year's annual symposium, Trends in Clinical Informatics and Nursing Perspective (Friday, April 27th, 2018) .

We want to congratulate the 2017 recipient of The Rita D. Zielstorff Nursing Informatics’ Leadership Award  to  Mr. Mark Sugrue MSN, RN-BC, FHIMSS, CPHIMS (CNIO, UMass Medical Center). Mr. Sugrue continues to be a beacon of leadership in our community and is well deserving of this prestigious award. 

I'm looking forward to another fantastic year with NENIC!
