Minneapolis—March 16, 2007— Walden University, an accredited online institution, has established a Nursing Informatics specialization within its Master of Science program in Nursing. As health care organizations seek to improve the management of patient information through technology, the demand for nurses with expertise in informatics will continue to grow. In response to the need, Walden University provides one of the few U.S. nursing programs with a specialization in Nursing Informatics that is offered completely online.

Designed in consultation with experts in the field of nursing informatics, the curriculum blends nursing science, computer science and information science. The specialization offers nurses the knowledge and skills to more effectively utilize information technology to enhance the safety and quality of patient care. Walden’s MS program in Nursing also has specializations in Education and in Leadership and Management.

The Nursing Informatics specialization is designed so that students have the opportunity to learn from experts in the nursing and health care informatics field and apply that knowledge in their practice. Courses address the latest trends in nursing informatics and their implications for the health care environment. Fieldwork experiences provide the opportunity for nurses to apply new knowledge immediately.

Walden University’s Master of Science (MS) program in Nursing is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), a national accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. CCNE, as the only national accrediting agency to focus exclusively on baccalaureate and graduate education programs in nursing education, ensures the quality and integrity of higher education degree programs preparing effective nursing professionals.
