A Message from Our President , Paula Wolski MSN, RN

 Year end message from Paula Wolski MSN, RN-BC 2018 President

As we near the end of 2018 and enter the hectic holiday season I feel that reflecting on the accomplishments and changes that NENIC has made over the past year an inspiring task.  We as a volunteer organization continue to bring our members services and opportunities that are valuable and for some rewarding.  Early in 2018 we embarked on a membership drive that gave members the possibility of obtaining new members and in turn receive free one-year membership.  This helped us grow our membership base and the hope is that those members in turn will participate in the many offerings that NENIC provides including free remote educational sessions.  We hope to bring this opportunity back to our members again this year as well.

We have embarked on a social media campaign, if you participated in Trends 2018 you know that we live tweeted during this event and it was well received.  We plan to continue to Live tweet at all our future offerings so that we can garner some immediate feedback on content and give us more exposure to other like-minded folks.  We hope to shortly expand our presence on LinkedIn so that our members will have another forum to obtain up to date information on happenings as well as exposure to Informatics content.  There are some other items being reviewed that may enhance opportunities for our members to ask questions of our community so check back in frequently to see how things are moving.

We have also added a journal club with the inaugural session being in November 2018.  This session reviewed nursing dashboards.  The event was well attended and offered CEU’s.  Our program development group hopes to offer this online material up to 5 times a year with a generous partnership with the journal CIN: Computers, Informatics and Nursing.  We hope that all of you take advantage of this opportunity to learn and share with your colleagues.

As my term as President ends I look back and see all that this organization has accomplished and I feel a sense of pride both for what has been done but also for what is to come.  I believe that we will continue to expand our digital presence in 2019 and beyond.  I look forward to seeing both new colleagues and old acquaintances at many NENIC events and hope that you will join us.

The NENIC Board wishes you peace and Joy during this Holiday season and a happy, healthy and educational New Year in 2019.  Thank you for all of your support.

Best Wishes,

Paula Wolski MSN, RN-BC

NENIC President
