Dr. Lara Carver
The Master's of Science in Nursing - Nursing Informatics specialization is designed for nurses who seek advanced education in nursing informatics theory and practice. Nurses play an important leadership role in the implementation of health information technology in health care delivery organizations. Potential students include nurses who particpate and in some instances lead the successful deployment of health information technologies to achieve improvement in the quality, safety, outcomes and thus value of health services in the United States. The goal is to equip RNs for leadership roles in nursing informatics that includes the information and knowledge management best practices and effective technology capabilities for nurses identified through the Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform Initiative ( http://www.tigersummit.com/ ).
