Discover Your Passion for Technology with eBay

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.

Health Informatics: Is Technology Improving Healthcare?

Health Informatics Is Technology Improving Healthcare

All this technology in healthcare doesn’t just materialize on it’s own. Health informatics professionals are the ones that ensure technology is integrated into healthcare. 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.

Nursing Informatics Jobs – Have you considered a Career in Informatics Nursing?

Informatics Nursing Speciality

Nursing informatics jobs are a popular option for nurses who wish to bridge the gap between technology and nurses. Nurses make up the largest group of health care workers and therefore the greatest number of health-care technology end-users. In 1992, the American Nurses Association recognized nursing informatics (NI) as a specialty. Since that time, there has been a steady increase in demand for nurses to enter into the specialty of nursing informatics. Currently, nursing educational programs offer informatics nursing as a specialization at the masters and doctorate level. This education prepares the nurse to practice as an informatics nurse specialist (INS) as well as equips the nurse to successfully pass the informatics nurse certification exam.

It seems like everything in healthcare has been improved by technology. Unfortunately, a few key processes are still stuck in the past. Nurse schedules are still primarily managed on pen and paper. 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 Comcast Data Cap is Ruining My Life

The Comcast data cap that has been put in place within the last year is causing serious issues in my household. For the first time in forever (yes, I just quoted Frozen), I am forced to be conscious of my internet usage or else be forced to pay the price (literally). At $10 per extra 50gbs, it can add up fast. To make matters worse, it’s leading to disputes between my husband and I over who is entitled to watch Netflix. As well as conversations with my son and I over whether or not he can watch another Youtube video.
