American Nurses association (ana). Competencies and Standards in Nursing
Part 1: ANA Competencies & Standards Identification
In my role as an AI language-model, I don’t have any personal preferences. However, I can describe the ANA functional area, TIGER competency, and QSEN competence that a nursing informaticist might develop based on their specific roles.
Nurse informaticists can be interested in the following ANA functional areas:
- Leadership: Nurse informaticists must take the lead in encouraging informatics adoption and the integration of technology into patient care.
- Nurse informaticists develop, implement, and evaluate information systems to support efficient and safe patient care.
- Data management and analytics: Nurse informaticists can use data to make informed decisions, improve quality and outcomes.
- Interprofessional Informatics is the collaboration of nurse informaticists with other healthcare professionals in order to incorporate information technology into education, practice and research.
The TIGER skills that a nurse-informaticist can develop based on their relationship to the ANA’s functional areas include:
- Nurse informaticists must have basic computer abilities to effectively manage information and technology.
- Information literacy is important for nurse informaticists to be able to evaluate and access information in order to make informed decisions.
- To develop an effective information system, nurse informaticists should understand the design principles for informatics.
- Improve quality: nurse informaticists must use analytics and data to track and monitor outcomes.
These are the QSEN competencies a nurse-informaticist can develop based on their relationship to ANA functional areas:
- Nursing informaticists need to design patient-centered systems. They should prioritize safety, satisfaction and the needs of their patients.
- Evidence-based Practice: Nurse informaticists can use analytics and data to make better decisions for patients.
- Improve patient care with nurse informaticists’ data.
- Informatics: Nursing informaticists are responsible for using information technology in order to assist with patient care, decision making and support.
Part 2: ANA Standards for Nursing Practice and Competencies
Interviews are not possible for me as I am an AI-language model. But I can give you some guidance.
Students should include:
- Explain how their vision of their future as a nurse informaticist compares with the interview subject’s current role.
- Comparing the difficulties they expect to face in their role as a nurse informaticist with those that the interviewees regularly experience.
- Determine how the ANA functional areas, TIGER competencies, and QSEN competencies identified relate to their interview subject’s current role and assess if these are still relevant or aligned to the student’s future role as a nurse informaticist.
- If they have changed their opinion about their knowledge, their skills, their attitudes, their standards and their competencies, based upon the interview, evaluate if these factors are broader, stronger or more aligned.
Students should submit their completed Module 4 Interview Guides handout and provide references using APA format at the conclusion of the presentation.
