Discuss Factors Influencing Nurses Attitudes
Discussion:Factors Influencing Nurses Attitudes
Review Ch. 11 of Handbook of Informatics for Nurses & Healthcare Professionals.
Read “Factors Influencing Nurses’ Attitudes Towards Healthcare Information Technology.”
Create an educational or training tool(trifold brochure) for new nursing hires that describes the nurse’s role in the use of informatics and technology.
Incorporate at least one theory (nursing theory, informatics theory, change theory, or other supporting theory) that relates to informatics in nursing.
Ensure that the educational tool:
defines nursing informatics,
describes the nurse’s role and responsibilities in quality data management,
explains why comfort with technology and informatics is important in patient care and administration, and
identifies ways for the new nurse to become more comfortable with health care technology.
Include a minimum of three peer-reviewed resources, and develop an APA-formatted reference page.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
