Happy Nurse's Week!

Our  15th Annual Symposium (May 12, 2017)  – Trends in Clinical Informatics: A Nursing Perspective is this Friday and we hope to see many of our members there!

May 12th is also Nursing Informatics Day and Florence Nightingale's birthday. She would have been 197 years old. Happy Birthday to one of our greatest Nurse Scientists and Statisticians.

This year’s keynote speaker will be Dr. Jane Englebright PhD, RN, CENP, FAAN who will share her insights on simplifying and standardizing clinical documentation to generate big data. In addition, Marcie Brostoff MS, RN, NE-BC (Boston Children’s Hospital), Sarah Collins, PhD, RN (Partners), Andrew Phillips PhD, RN (MGH-IHP) and others will also be providing updates on best practices and examples of nurses who are transforming patient care with informatics.  

Boston Children’s Hospital, our Joint Provider,  has approved this program for 7.25  contact hours. The Boston Children’s Hospital is accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.  

There is a lot going on in our community. I look forward to  hearing your news and  meeting you at TRENDS!
