New AMIA 10x10 Program Partner -- University of Minnesota School of Nursing

BETHESDA, Md., March 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AMIA is pleased to announce the formal partnership of the University of Minnesota School of Nursing (UMN) in the AMIA 10x10 program. Bonnie Westra, PhD, RN, Assistant Professor and Co-Director of the Center for Nursing Minimum Data Set Knowledge Discovery, will serve as the Director of the University of Minnesota School of Nursing 10x10 offering.

"The University of Minnesota has adapted its tried and true graduate level informatics course required of all our masters and DNP students to a self-paced online continuing education course," remarked Dr. Westra. "This course offers the opportunity to gain an understanding of workflow processes, standards for the electronic health records, and how nurses can participate to assure systems support their work in providing safe and effective patient care. Nurses need to be prepared to advocate for technology to match and support their workflow as part of an interdisciplinary team."

The course is offered as an online internet-based continuing education course. Students register for the course and complete 13 web-based modules starting the week of April 6, 2009. Each module contains a brief introduction to the content, learning objectives, an Adobe UMConnect presentation, reading assignments, use of web resources, and a quiz.
