Roberts Wesleyan to add nursing informatics master’s program

Roberts Wesleyan College will introduce a new master’s program in the School of Nursing in the Spring 2018 semester.

The new program will be in nursing informatics, and it will help prepare nursing students for careers in nursing informatics, clinical informatics nursing, clinical systems analysis, informatics resources nursing and more.

Graduate students will “learn best practices in health informatics essentials to include patient safety, electronic health records, workflow, meaningful use, change management and the health information system life cycle, in addition to expertise in nursing science,” according to the school.

The program is 20 months long, and with Robert’s virtual classrooms, students will have 24-hour access to courses. In addition to coursework, students will be required to complete an internship to gain real world experience in the field and hone their skills.

“This program is the only nursing informatics degree available in the greater Rochester area,” Cheryl Crotser, dean and graduate program director, said in a statement. “The goal of the Roberts Wesleyan School of Nursing is to prepare you for excellence in nursing through innovative education, practice and scholarship within a supportive Christian environment. Roberts has a reputation of excellence in nursing education and our alumni are respected and sought-after in the health care community.”
