Transitioning into an Informatics Position

    Hello, my name is Melodie Gordon.  I have been a NICU RN for 18 years.  I finished my MSN in Informatics last year, 10/2023.  I learned a new system, Athena, during my 200 hours of Practicum experience.  It was wonderful.  I live in Los Angeles, CA , but my Preceptor lived in Atlanta, Georgia and so was the clinic where I did my Practicum.  I learned a lot and it was very different because the patient population were adults.  The EMR system that I am most familiar with is Epic but I am open to learning.  I am have a very difficult time finding a job in Informatics due to lack of experience although I have the MSN.  

    Please advise,
