Conversations with the panelists will include examining their experiences, the benefits and challenges of conducting pedagogical research, and lessons learned. The second half of this pre-conference will offer participants the opportunity to converse with the panelists about conducting research in nursing education and establishing a research trajectory to advance the science.

Pre-Conference Workshop 4

Informatics: Integrating the Essentials Into Education and Practice
Melissa Willmarth-Stec, DNP, APRN, CNM, FACNM

Informatics happens at the intersection of people and technology. Embedded within the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s Essentials documents are clear, leveled objectives on achieving informatics competencies prior to graduating from a BSN, MSN, or DNP program. These essentials are aimed at equipping students with advanced tools to implement in order to drive change. The session will focus on two key concepts to informatics in nursing. The first is the integration of the informatics essentials into education. The second concept will explore the opportunities to use informatics based research to achieve the quad aim of improved outcomes, decreased cost, improved patient satisfaction, and improved provider satisfaction.
