    Please take a moment to fill out a quick survey to help get our chapter moving!  I can't wait to see you all!

  • 2021 Greater Delaware Valley ANIA Chapter Scholarship Recipient

    We are excited to announce that Marisa McCarthy has been selected to receive the 2021 Greater Delaware Valley (GDV) ANIA Chapter Scholarship.
    Marisa McCarthy
    Applications were reviewed by a group of GDV-ANIA Chapter Executive Board members and the student winner was selected based upon the academic criteria and response to the three essay questions. The eleven scholarship candidates this year were all highly qualified and worthy recipients, making for a difficult decision for the Scholarship Committee.

    Spotlighting this year’s recipient, Marisa McCarthy is enrolled as a nursing student pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in the Full-time Accelerated Coursework Track (FACT) program at Jefferson College of Nursing. In the submitted essay, Ms. McCarthy shared real-life experiences about pursuing academics, providing patient care, being a liaison, and applying data analytics, while demonstrating a passion for a data-driven career, a perfect blend of qualities for an informaticist.

    Congratulations Marisa McCarthy and best wishes for a successful nursing career!

    Organizational Change Management – The role of the Nurse Informaticist
    October 19, 2021
    6pm-7pm

     

    As a nurse informaticist, you need to prepare for changes at every level and to guide others through the process and adjustment of change. Whether it is a planned initiative, volatile environment, or unexpected situation, change is inevitable.  Effective change leaders do three of the following things:

    1. Anticipate where things are moving
    2. Facilitate the implementation of change
    3. Sustain momentum by taking charge and moving things ahead

    This webinar will assist nurse informaticists in the role they have in leading, guiding, and facilitating change throughout an organization.
