    Also, if you do not have plans for the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, November 23rd; they are looking for people to assist in serving a Thanksgiving meal to the homeless in the area that they serve.  If you are interested in doing this, you will need to be at Community Crossroads by 6 pm and serve until around 7 pm.  They are extremely excited that this is the first year that they will be offering this service and want to make sure it is successful so they can continue to offer it in the future.  The address is 1516 Hemphill St, Fort Worth, 76104. They welcome anyone's assistance.

  • Employee Onboarding: How We Successfully Adapted in a Pandemic

    Hello,
    Please see below for a free CE Webinar Event hosted by the South Florida ANIA Chapter.

    On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic. While the world took cover, healthcare heroes came out and got the job done but in order to start that job, they first needed to be on boarded. Turning to the virtual world to make this possible, the informatics training team took center stage in facilitating new employee orientation, conducting provider trainings remotely and onboarding new residents to our health system. Despite the challenges faced, the informatics team pivoted and rose to the challenge, successfully onboarding over 200 residents that summer and each summer moving forward along with hundreds of new employees both clinical and non-clinical. Join us for a lunchtime educational session on how a multi-hospital organization successfully went from in-person to virtual employee onboarding overnight.

  • National Conference is coming to SOUTH FLORIDA!

    Hello South Florida Chapter.  I know for all of us down here the past two years have been a whirlwind.  Covid has pushed and pulled us all in different directions both professionally and personally.  As we all continue to learn a new normal, lets lean in on each other and start to build back our local informatics community. 

    Our National Conference is around the corner and we are lucky to have it in our backyard this year at the Hardrock Casino.  I am looking forward to spending these next few months engaging with you all so that we can show all our ANIA colleagues what South Florida has to offer and the amazing Informatics Nurses that live and work here.  

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

    Sincerely,
