I’m so excited to share with you that an amazing project I have been working on for quite some time now is nearly complete. You guessed it: My book!
The Nerdy Nurse’s Guide to Technology provides the tools nurses need to improve their practices, further their careers, and solidify themselves as assets to their employers. Written with humor and easily digestible sections of information, this reference guide supplies nurses with the practical application tools they need to embrace technology and be successful.
Technology should be seen and used as an aide to delivering nursing care. If it is a barrier, then we need to break down those walls and make it useful for the care you give. Technology, like most things in life, becomes what you make of it. If you make it difficult and useless, then it will be difficult and useless. But if you make it prominent and valuable, then you might find that you not only experience increased satisfaction in your job performance but are a happier nurse overall.
I’ve created a technology guide for nurses that will help nurses who struggle with adapting to digital change to understand more clearly how technology can benefit them and how exactly to get started. I also throw in some pretty cool tips and tricks for more advanced technology users.

Nurses are continuously adapting to the improvements in technology, often adding more time, hassle, and frustration to the clinical care process. But with Brittney Wilson’s humor and tech-savvy tips, using EMRs, iPads, and smartphones makes patient care a lot more fun! The Nerdy Nurse’s Guide to Technology provides nurses with all the knowledge and tools they need to be successful in their nursing careers. This book is entertaining, informative, and full of personality! An absolute must-read! — Donna Wilk Cardillo, MA, RN The Career Guru for Nurses Dear Donna columnist at Nurse.com Expert blogger at DoctorOz.com
The Nerdy Nurse s Guide to Technology is invaluable for nurses struggling with the brave new world of health care IT. And if you don t know what that is READ THIS BOOK. You ll be glad you did! —Theresa Brown, BSN, RN, OCN Author of Critical Care: A New Nurse Faces Death, Life, and Everything in Between
Written in a lively, engaging voice, Wilson’s book brings technology to life and shows its relevance to every aspect of nursing. Her subject knowledge is extensive, and her enthusiasm for it is infectious. In Wilson’s hands, nursing informatics is fun and fascinating, which is fortunate because the information in this book is absolutely essential to every nurse’s practice. If this is what being a nerdy nurse is like, I want to be one, too. —Tilda Shalof RN, BScN Author of A Nurse’s Story, The Making of a Nurse and Opening My Heart: A Journey from Nurse to Patient and Back Again

corked22 thank you so much. I really hope that I can help nurses feel more empowered through technology.
This is really awesome, As i am a full time online blogger and went to nursing school, I think with technology moving in the direction that it is that it will keep on touching each side of delivering care, Love the article
donnad2008 my goal is to really empower those nurses who are struggling with all this change around them. Many nurses are just going through the motions when it comes to using technologies and I would like to really help them feel more confident in it.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. It means more than you will ever know!
Brittney, so many nurses are used to dealing with technology that are patient-supportive but are hesitant, or down-right afraid, of information technology. This book will make such a difference in how technology is viewed in nursing practice. This is the future…and it is now. Thank you!
NurseGAILINGRAM Thank you so much Gail. This book is basically me having a conversation with nurses. Except you get the added benefit of taking a breather if you need to soak it all in. 🙂 I truly feel that nurses will benefit from this book and it will help them feel more confident in their careers.
Your writing style is engaging and easy to digest which is important when learning about technology. This book will benefit so many nurses. Thank you for sharing your expertise with the rest of us!
