Course Competency

Explain technologies that lead to enhanced decision-making strategies utilizing the technology life cycle.



As a BSN student, you are shadowing a Nurse Informaticist to better understand their role and impact in making healthcare decisions. You have one day in this immersion and will be exposed to several Health Information Technologies and their impact on healthcare decision-making. Due to the fast-paced nature of the Nurse Informaticist role, the clinic manager has asked nursing students to come prepared to fully immerse into this fast-paced environment. You received a welcome email from your assigned Nurse Informaticist providing you with her background, but also asking you to spend some time reflecting on your own experience with healthcare technology. Reflect on your experiences both as a client and as a nurse, and how technology leveraged the decisions you have made. She also wants you to think about how technology evolves and its implications for future use.


Your instructor has just released your pre-clinical paperwork, and you have been asked to write a professional reflection in preparation for the next day’s shadowing experience. You must provide detailed responses to the following:

  • Explain one technology you have used in healthcare
  • Explain the impact of the technology using referenced support with in-text citation
  • Describe how you used this type of technology to support a healthcare decision
  • Describe an example illustrating how the use of the technology affected your decision making
  • Research the evolution of your identified technology using the technology life cycle
  • How has the technology evolved and where is it heading (past, present, future)?
  • How has this evolution improved healthcare decision-making?



  • Standard American English (correct grammar, punctuation, etc.)
  • Logical, original, and insightful
  • Professional organization, style, and mechanics in APA format
  • Submit your document to Grammarly to correct errors before submission
