Two nurses have won recognition as emerging leaders in the field of nursing informatics, selected by the Chicago-based Alliance for Nursing Informatics (ANI) to participate in a jointly supported Nursing Informatics Emerging Leaders Program.
This inaugural program aims to develop leaders capable of assuming national leadership positions in an informatics-related organization, says the organization. The two emerging leaders selected are: Ellen Makar, RN-BC, MSN, of Yale–New Haven Health System, Conn.; and Sandra Ng, RN-BC, MSN, UCSF Medical Center, part of the University of California, San Francisco.
ANI and its Nursing Informatics Emerging Leaders Program are jointly supported by the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA, Bethesda, Md.)) and the Chicago-based Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS).
