This edition and its previous editions were well written. The authors, Linda Q. Thede and Jeanne P. Sewel, write this book in a simple and easy to understand. All nurses should understand the competencies and applications in Informatics and Nursing, I found that this book is a quick and easy way to investigate on it, it is Informatics Basics, Computers and Your Professional Career, Information Competency and The New Healthcare Paradigm. There is also a chapter in Healthcare Informatics and Computer Uses in Healthcare Beyond Clinical Informatics, to help us understand the latest issue in nursing informatics. It’s important that all nurses who willing to deliver the best services through the touch of technology to understand nursing informatics comprehensively.
It’s never too late to buy an informative book, and here I recommend this book to ALL, professional or not. Highly recommended! Good luck all future nurses!
