    Nursing Informatics: Connecting Technology and Patient Care prepares students to enter a healthcare system brimming with technology. The text introduces students to the complex and critical world of health informatics and provides them with the necessary tools and knowledge to develop measurable goals in data management through health technologies.

    The text is divided into five units. In Unit I, students learn about the role of informatics in healthcare and how computer technology has changed the face of modern medical practices. Unit II explores nursing informatics, the external drivers of informatics technology, and how informatics are used in documentation and other administrative activities. Unit III focuses on system interoperability, data mining, evidenced-based research in nursing, and more. In Unit IV, readers learn about e-health, health information systems, and the importance of confidentiality, security, and integrity. The final unit speaks to digital libraries and computing, and features scholarly articles on e-learning.

    Designed to align with AACN accreditation standards, TIGER competencies, and the QSEN skills, knowledge, and attitude needed by nurses at all levels, Nursing Informatics is an excellent resource for undergraduate and graduate courses with focus in health informatics.

    Priscilla O. Okunji earned both her B.S.N. and M.S. in nursing informatics and administration respectively from the University of Maryland. She earned her Ph.D. in health sciences from Trident University. She is a registered nurse and a tenured associate professor of nursing at Howard University, College of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences, where she taught nursing informatics and spearheaded the development of the university’s RN-to-BSN online program, which she coordinated from 2011 – 2016. She currently teaches health assessment, nursing research, and leadership online in the Division of Nursing. Her research interests are in cardiovascular and chronic diseases using “big data to knowledge.” She is also involved in coordinating culturally-tailored health education and the screening of chronic diseases in the District of Columbia metropolitan area within the African immigrant community.
