Alicia Bremer MSN, APRN-PCNS-BC, RN-BC, CPN
Alicia Bremer is a clinical nurse specialist who fell into informatics when her CNO asked if she would temporarily step out of her CNS role and take on a project. Within a few months, that project turned into a full-scale enterprise-wide, EMR implementation and a permanent informatics position. Now, four years later, Alicia is the manager of clinical informatics, leads a team of three nurse informaticists, and has her ANCC nurse informatics certification. Today Alicia will share how as the nurse champion for the EMR implementation, she partnered with the CMIO to create a clinical readiness program that outlined a pre-training communication plan and established post-training accountability expectations for providers, nurses, and other clinical staff.
