Week 4 assignment
Have you ever gone online to search for a journal article on
a specific topic? It is amazing to see the large number of journals that are
available in the health care field. When you view the library in its entirety,
you are viewing untapped data. Until you actually research for your particular
topic, there is little structure. Once you have narrowed it down, you have
information and once you apply the information, you have knowledge. Eventually,
after thoughtful research and diligent practice, you reach the level of
wisdom—knowledge applied in meaningful ways.
Are there areas in your practice that you believe should be
more fully explored? The central aims of nursing informatics are to manage and
communicate data, information, knowledge, and wisdom. This continuum represents
the overarching structure of nursing informatics. In this Assignment, you
develop a research question relevant to your practice area and relate how you
would work through the progression from data to information, knowledge, and
Review the information in Figure 6–2 in Nursing Informatics
and the Foundation of Knowledge.
Develop a clinical question related to your area of practice
that you would like to explore.
Consider what you currently know about this topic. What
additional information would you need to answer the question?
Using the continuum of data, information, knowledge, and
wisdom, determine how you would go about researching your question.
Explore the available databases in the Walden Library.
Identify which of these databases you would use to find the information or data
Once you have identified useful databases, how would you go
about finding the most relevant articles and information?
Consider how you would extract the relevant information from
How would you take the information and organize it in a way
that was useful? How could you take the step from simply having useful
knowledge to gaining wisdom?
By Day 7 of Week 4
Write a 3- to 4-page paper that addresses the following:
Summarize the question you developed, and then relate how
you would work through the four steps of the data, information, knowledge,
wisdom continuum. Be specific.
Identify the databases and search words you would use.
Relate how you would take the information gleaned and turn
it into useable knowledge.
Can informatics be used to gain wisdom? Describe how you
would progress from simply having useful knowledge to the wisdom to make
decisions about the information you have found during your database search.
Your paper must also include a title page, an introduction,
a summary, and a reference page
Week 6 assignment
Application: Adoption of New Technology Systems
As a nurse, you can have a great impact on the success or
failure of the adoption of EHRs. It is important for nurses to understand their
role as change agents and the ways they can influence others when addressing
the challenges of changing to a drastically different way of doing things.
Everett Rogers, a pioneer in the field of the diffusion of
innovations, identified five qualities that determine individual attitudes
towards adopting new technology (2003). He theorized that individuals are
Relative advantage: The individual adopting the new
innovation must see how it will be an improvement over the old way of doing things.
Compatibility with existing values and practices: The
adopter must understand how the new innovation aligns with current practices.
Simplicity: The adopter must believe he or she can easily
master the new technology; the more difficult learning the new system appears,
the greater the resistance that will occur.
Trialability: The adopter should have the opportunity to
“play around’ with the new technology and explore its capabilities.
Observable results: The adopter must have evidence that the
proposed innovation has been successful in other situations.
Note: You are not required to purchase Rogers’ book or
pursue further information regarding his list of five qualities. The
information provided here is sufficient to complete this Assignment. The full
reference for Rogers’ work is provided below the due date on this page.
For this Assignment, you assume the role of a nurse
facilitator in a small hospital in upstate New York. You have been part of a
team preparing for the implementation of a new electronic health records
system. Decisions as to the program that will be used have been finalized, and
you are now tasked with preparing the nurses for the new system. There has been
an undercurrent of resistance expressed by nurses, and you must respond to their
concerns. You have a meeting scheduled with the nurses 1 week prior to the
training on the new EHR system. Consider how you can use the five qualities
outlined by Rogers (2003) to assist in preparing the nurses for the upcoming
Review the Learning Resources this week about successful
implementations of EHRs.
Consider how you would present the new EHR system to the
nurses to win their approval.
Reflect on the five qualities outlined by Rogers. How would
addressing each of those areas improve the likelihood of success?
By Day 7 of Week 6
Write a 3- to 5-page paper which includes the following:
Using Rogers’ (2003) theory as a foundation, outline how you
would approach the meeting with the nurses. Be specific as to the types of information
or activities you could provide to address each area and include how you would
respond to resistance.
Analyze the role of nurses as change agents in facilitating
the adoption of new technology.
Week 8 assignment
Workflow analysis aims to determine workflow patterns that
maximize the effective use of resources and minimize activities that do not add
value. There are a variety of tools that can be used to analyze the workflow of
processes and clarify potential avenues for eliminating waste. Flowcharts are a
basic and commonly used workflow analysis method that can help highlight areas
in need of streamlining.
In this Assignment, you select a common event that occurs
regularly in your organization and create a flowchart representing the
workflow. You analyze the process you have diagrammed and propose changes for
Identify a common, simple event that frequently occurs in
your organization that you would like to evaluate.
Consider how you would design a flowchart to represent the
Consider what metrics you would use to determine the
effectiveness of the current workflow and identify areas of waste.
Write a 3- to 5-page paper which includes the following:
Create a simple flowchart of the activity you selected.
(Review the Sample Workflow of Answering a Telephone in an Office document
found in this week’s Learning Resources for an example.)
Next, in your paper:
Explain the process you have diagrammed.
For each step or decision point in the process, identify the
Who does this step? (It can be several people.)
What technology is used?
What policies and rules are involved in determining how,
when, why, or where the step is executed?
What information is needed for the execution of this step?
Describe the metric that is currently used to measure the
soundness of the workflow. Is it effective?
Describe any areas where improvements could occur and
propose changes that could bring about these improvements in the workflow.
Summarize why it is important to be aware of the flow of an
Remember to include a cover page, introduction, and summary
for your paper

Our goal is to help as many students as possible with their assignments, i.e. our prices are affordable and services premium.
- Discussion Questions (DQ)
Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, including a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words. Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source. One or two-sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words. I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
- Weekly Participation
Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately. In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies. Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work). Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
- APA Format and Writing Quality
Familiarize yourself with the APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in Loud-cloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required). Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation. I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
- Use of Direct Quotes
I discourage over-utilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Master’s level and deduct points accordingly. As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content. It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
- LopesWrite Policy
For assignments that need to be submitted to Lopes Write, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me. Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes. Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own? Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in Loud-cloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
- Late Policy
The university’s policy on late assignments is a 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies. Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances. If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect. I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension. As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me: Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class. Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
