23 23 Integrating Informatics Competencies into Nursing Education Essential I: Liberal Education for Baccalaureate Generalist Nursing Practice A solid base in liberal education provides the cornerstone for the practice and education of nurses. Essential I: Liberal Education for Baccalaureate Generalist Nursing Practice A solid base in liberal education provides the cornerstone for the practice and education of nurses. 1.Integrate theories and concepts from liberal education into nursing practice. 2. Synthesize theories and concepts from liberal education to build an understanding of the human experience. 3.Use skills of inquiry, analysis, and information literacy to address practice issues. 4.Use written, verbal, nonverbal, and emerging technology methods to communicate effectively. 5.Apply knowledge of social and cultural factors to the care of diverse populations. 6.Engage in ethical reasoning and actions to provide leadership in promoting advocacy, collaboration, and social justice as a socially responsible citizen. 7.Integrate the knowledge and methods of a variety of disciplines to inform decision making. 8.Demonstrate tolerance for the ambiguity and unpredictability of the world and its effect on the healthcare system. 9.Value the ideal of lifelong learning to support excellence in nursing practice.

25 25 Putting the competencies into the curriculum Review the essential assigned to your table and identify the criteria that address informatics Use the matrix to identify which of the competencies fit with the criteria from the essential Review the course outlines, objectives and assignments in the syllabi brought by members of the group. Identify strategies that could be used to teach the content in ways that build NI competencies among the students. Document your ideas on the paper provided to share with the group as a whole
