Study: Nurses Lack IT training


A new study in eWeek finds that most nurses receive minimal or no IT training. Information literacy is integral to an understanding of how to approach Evidence Based Nursing.

Please post your comments below if you have any great ideas/suggestions on this topic.

I am very interested in this issue! In order for successful implementation of health information technology (which means that it is used appropriately and to its fullest potential), facilities must invest in not only initial training, but ongoing education of clinicians.
