Educator's Certificate

Several students standing and smiling
  • Do you need to address informatics competencies in your curriculum?
  • Are you worried about how you will address the AACN informatics essentials for pre licensure students and/or DNP’s?
  • Are you concerned how you as an educator can gain introductory knowledge about informatics?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then consider our educator’s certificate.

Informatics knowledge and skills are necessary for the next generation of nurse to practice. Both NLN and AACN recognize the importance of informatics in nursing curriculum. Informatics is a core essential for DNP programs and has also been incorporated in the newly revised baccalaureate essentials draft. The recent NLN position statement, Preparing the Next Generation of Nurses to Practice in a Technology-Rich Environment, calls upon educators to increase their  knowledge of informatics and begin the integration of informatics concepts, knowledge and skills into nursing programs at all levels. For more information check out NLN’s position statements.
