Formatted Abstract/Summary
Background: The nursing informatics is an important part of the health science curriculum on many levels of nursing programs across the world. Sweeping changes in health care gives urgency to the call to transform nursing curricula so that new competencies could more closely match practical needs. Aim: This paper is a report of an integrative review of nursing informatics programs. The purpose is to describe the findings of the review to understand the current state of informatics integration within basic nursing curricula. Data sources: The Ovid CINAHL, Ovid Nursing Database and MEDLINE, EBSCO CINAHL with Fulltext, EBSCO Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition and ERIC, PROQUEST Nursing and Allied Health Sources, PUBMED electronic databases were searched for the period 1991 – 2008 for research based papers published in English. Manual searching as scrutiny is an additional method. Findings: Inclusion criteria of the study were defined. The integrative review was conducted and each paper was explored in relation to: design, purposes, sample, outcome measures and results. Comparisons between study findings are difficult to make because of variation in methodology, settings and sample characteristics. There is limited empirical evidence addressing the use of computer technology, skills and competencies. Conclusions:
1.) The outcomes of the study are important to guide curriculum development in meeting the changing health care environmental demands for quality, cost effectiveness and safety.
2.) Information literacy and computer literacy are critical to the future of nursing.
3.) Nursing science programs must integrate the contents of complex informatics and competencies into their curricula to prepare nurses for future missions.
