NR 599 Week 7: Post TANIC Self-Assessment and Reflection Post

Discussion 

Purpose 

The self-assessment is completed using the TIGER-based Assessment of Nursing Informatics Competencies (TANIC) tool. TIGER refers to the Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform Initiative which identified a list of the minimum informatics competencies for all nurses and students graduating from pre- and post-licensure programs. The graded self-evaluation of your informatics competencies is required in order to increase one’s own understanding of competencies in nursing informatics which will enable the planning of strategies to enhance knowledge and skills. 

Course Outcomes 

This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes: 

  1. Apply knowledge of nursing informatics and non-nursing science (CO 1 and 2) 
  1. Assess nursing informatics competencies (CO2) 
  1. Evaluate progress in enhancing nursing informatics competencies (CO4) 
  1. Foster professional and personal development with planning strategies to enhance these competencies (CO4) 
  1. Examine ethical decision making in relation to these competencies (CO3) 

Due Date 

This assignment is due no later than the Sunday, 11:59 p.m. MT at the end of Week 7. 

Total Points Possible: 75

Regarding the Post-TANIC Self-Assessment for this week, how does your competency level compare to the Week 2 Self-Assessment? 

Before taking the Post-TANIC self-assessment I felt really confident that I did improve a little in the area of information literacy, however, I still need to make further improvements to be more competent and proficient at utilizing resources and literature databases effectively for the research of information management, being able to evaluate the quality of the resources and research with educating and developing a skillset on defining the specific target area of research. My dilemma with information literacy is being able to pinpoint the correct terms and keywords for searching the necessary content that is needed for my search. 

 Which two competencies do you think may benefit you in your future role as an APN and why? 

Nurses play a significant role in recognizing, understanding, progressing, and translating the necessary education and informational needs of patients, these skills all serve as a benefit to advanced practice nursing because it helps to enhance patient compliance in their healthcare treatment plan and promote efficient and optimal holistic healthcare (Buchanan & Nicol, 2019). Thus, to become fluent, proficient, and competent in informational literacy including facilitating the development of information literacy in patients’ nurses need to become familiar with informational literacy models and frameworks (Buchanan & Nicol, 2019).

As also stated by Farokhzadian et al (2021), one of the most essential requirements for nurses’ readiness to implement evidence-based practice is to improve their information literacy skills, and through learned evidence-based practice skills nurses will be able to apply the appropriate and effective research findings in their nursing practice to provide high-quality, safe and compassionate nursing care and be able to make decisions based on the most recent evidence in clinical settings. Therefore, nurses need to be provisioned with the necessary information literacy skills to obtain the most recent research findings to provide sympathetic, safe, ethical, and cost-effective health care as it is fundamental for the successful implementation of evidence-based clinical practice (Farokhzadian et al, 2021). 

The competency of clinical information management is associated with the quality of care, critical thinking, problem-solving, ethical knowledge, clinical decision-making, focusing on skills, teamwork, and collaboration. Advanced practice nurses need to remain efficient in clinical decision-making competence to maintain the retention of traditional life-saving nursing skills, ethics, effective patient care, and fundamentals for maintaining patient safety (Wallin et al., 2022).

 Which two competencies did you achieve in this course? Explain. 

The two competencies in this class that I achieved educational efficiency were informational literacy and clinical information management. This course has taught me how to analyze current and emerging technologies to support safe practice environments and to optimize patient safety, cost-effectiveness, and health outcomes by maximizing the skillset of having proficient and competent clinical information management. I have learned how to utilize the TIGER framework to help integrate informatics competencies by identifying knowledge and skillsets in my clinical decision-making.

Also, through studying the efficacy of informational literacy I have gained proficiency and competency in being able to recognize when further educational and evidence-based research is needed, how to search for the specifically targeted information that is needed, and how to navigate the informatic technologies and provided CDS, which is critical in obtaining optimal holistic patient-centered care, patient compliance, patient safety, and safe professional nursing practice.

Regarding the Post-TANIC Self-Assessment for this week, how does your competency level compare to the Week 2 Self-Assessment? 

I definitely feel that my strong points are still in basic word processing and computer skills, however I feel that I understand more of the language used in the TANIC assessment and can explain things related to security, protecting PHI and systems better than when we started. My levels of proficiency have increased in the second assessment and overall have gained knowledge in the healthcare informatics sector. 

Which two competencies do you think may benefit you in your future role as an APN and why? 

I have developed a stronger understanding between the APN and computer technologies and systems that assist in clinical decision making. Being able to have the working knowledge of CDSS and how they can assist with alerts and recommendations is an important key to safe practice as an APN. Another competency that is a benefit, especially to community based practice is the knowledge of resources available to patient via apps, web pages, EMR systems and reputable websites they can access for healthcare assistance, direct access to the provider and useful tools for discounted prices for pharmaceuticals.
