Chapter 1 Nursing Science and the Foundation of Knowledge

The nurse understands that nursing informatics is recognized as a specialty area of practice by
which statement?

1. Research priorities for nursing informatics include the development of a standard nursing
language and the development of databases for clinical information.
2. A formal educational program at the master’s level must be completed before a nurse is
eligible to sit for the credentialing examination.
3. As a differentiated practice, nursing informatics is focused upon the client, the environment,
health, and the nurse.
4. There is a need for nursing informatics interests to gain representation by workgroups and
organizations within the United States.

Correct Answer: 1

Rationale 1: The development of research priorities is a key point in a specialty practice.
Although degrees at the master’s level are available, the degree required for credentialing is
typically at the bachelor’s level and includes experience in the field. Current demands for safer,
cost-effective, quality care require evidence of the best practices supported by research.

Rationale 2: Such a formal educational program does not necessarily mean a specialty area of
practice. Although degrees at the master’s level are available, the degree required for
credentialing is typically at the bachelor’s level and includes experience in the field. The
development of research priorities is a key point in a specialty practice.

Rationale 3: Your chosen response refers to the entire discipline of nursing. The specialty of
nursing informatics integrates nursing science, computer science, and information science to
manage and communicate data, information, knowledge, and wisdom into nursing practice. The
development of research priorities is a key point in a specialty practice.

Rationale 4: There are many workgroups in the United States related to informatics that focus
on the specialty of informatics practice. One example is the Nursing Informatics Special Interest
Group of the International Medical Informatics Association. The development of research
priorities is a key point in a specialty practice.
