A few months ago I wrote about a post titled “What is Visual Privacy and How to Avoid Visual Hacking.” My goal was to define both visual privacy and visual hacking and offer solutions to protect sensitive data. I highlighted 3M™ Privacy Filters and how they can protect data both at home and on the job. This post is a followup to continue to dive into the issue of visual hacking, and how my 3M™ Privacy Filter has helped to keep my data safe from prying eyes.

One of my personal missions in life is to empower people (especially nurses) to become more confident using and passionate about technology. I’m a big advocate for integrating technology into your routine. This includes using tablets and computers to educate children, expand the minds of adults, and keep aging loved ones connected to the world.
This can be a real challenge because of the high prices associated with many of the latest and greatest high tech gadgets. However, there’s no need to swear off top of the line technologies because of retail stickers prices. I hardly ever pay full retail value on any of the technology products and accessories that I buy.

There are many technical and clinical professionals working behind the scene to ensure that technology is weaved into the fabric of healthcare as seamlessly as possible. Since technology isn’t going away, neither is the need for skilled health informatics professionals. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 22 percent increase in employment through the year 2022, a rate that is much faster than the national average for all occupations.

Hospitals require all patient information be documented in an electronic health record (EHR), but for some reason making sure that there are nurses scheduled to care for those patients is a matter that hasn’t, for the most part, been modernized. Fortunately, there’s an app for that. The problems of nurse scheduling can be a thing the past thanks to NurseGrid.
The American Journal of Nursing has awarded the honor of book of the year to The Nerdy Nurse’s Guide to Technology. The book received first place honors in the Information Technology/Social Media category.
I am sincerely honored and grateful that the AJN has selected my book as one noteworthy in the year 2014. To have my little technology and social media guidebook alongside textbooks and other prestigious nursing publications is mindblowing.
