Technology-Assisted Training for the Clinical Nurse

  • Patsy B. Marr
Part of the Computers in Health Care book series (HI)


To become part of a technologically advanced medical environment, nurses must master the new skills required to manage the computerized clinical information system. In most cases, nurses either have not used such systems before or have had minimal exposure to them. Yet nursing effectiveness is directly related to the speed and accuracy nurses bring to this core communications vehicle. The assimilation of nurses into the culture of the computer is essential not only to patient care but also to the well being of the caregivers themselves.
