The role of the nursing informaticist is complex and challenging. In one day, a nursing informaticist can be involved in workflow analysis, education, system design, project planning, data evaluation, leadership meetings, user support, and much more. For those new to the profession, this dizzying array of activities can be overwhelming, requiring the use of skills that have not yet been fully developed. In addition, many organizations do not understand the role of the nursing informaticist themselves, creating expectations that are unclear and difficult to attain.
