Abstract:

In today’s transformed healthcare industry, nursing informatics has become an essential and fast growing specialty. While nursing informatics competencies (NI) have been identified and recommended by national organizations as an essential component of nursing education and practice, limited information is available on the skills and informatics competencies of practicing informaticists. This evidence-based DNP project implemented and evaluated an evidence-based professional development program to address informatics competency gaps among practicing informaticists at a Magnet-recognized hospital at Northeast Florida, to ensure informaticists possess the essential skills and knowledge to improve achieving the organizational informatics needs.  Nursing Informatics Competency Assessment (NICA) L3/L4 tool was used in this EBP project (McGonigle, Hunter, Hebda, & Hill, 2014).  Overall, the project results indicated a positive outcome and improvement in competencies gaps intervened following the implementation and evaluation of an evidence-based professional development program and the results support the main objective of the quality improvement project. Findings from this project is valuable to healthcare organizations and nurse leaders who wish to identify and address informatics competency gaps among informaticists and provide on-job-training to address gaps in knowledge and skills. Results of this QI project contributes and fills the gap in the literature on informatics competency assessment and development.
