NEW YORK — Pace University is introducing a Nursing Informatics Masters Program that combines the primary health care expertise of the Lienhard School of Nursing (LSN) with the technological expertise of the School of Computer Sciences and Information Systems (CSIS). According to LSN Dean Harriet R. Feldman, “This innovative program is unique in combining the expertise of two disciplines to better address the health management needs of individuals and groups through the effective use of data.”
The collaborative Nursing Informatics program is designed to provide RNs, who have their bachelors’ degrees, with a curriculum that facilitates the learning and application of Nursing Informatics concepts. Nursing Informatics integrates nursing science, computer science, and information science for the purposes of identifying, collecting, processing, and managing data and information to support nursing practice, administration, education and research.
“The Nursing Informatics program grew out of a needs assessment survey, in which prospective graduate students expressed a strong desire for furthering their education in the field of informatics but focused on nursing,” said Karen Anderson Keith, chairperson of the department of graduate studies at the LSN.
The 36-credit masters program will combine graduate nursing core courses in primary health care at Lienhard with information systems core courses at CSIS, as well as two new Nursing Informatics courses. Nurses participating in the program will gain field experience while training in a variety of community-based systems, including acute care, home-care and public health agencies. A 24 credit Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in Nursing Informatics is also available.

The LSN also has three centers: The Center for Nursing Research, Clinical Practice and International Affairs, the Center for Continuing Education in Nursing and Health Care, and the Learning Resource Center.
