Sample 1st Paragraph, Nursing Informatics
If there was an exact moment when my vague resolve to try to do something about the matter of improving the use of IT in a nursing environment took on solid purpose, it occurred when I saw a highly dedicated nurse colleague struggle to use a piece of software merely because it was so badly designed. Much of my pre-nursing working life was spent in the areas of computing and information technology and so I am especially aware of current problems in this sphere and also the breadth of possibilities for the application of currently available technology to nursing. Even more exciting is the prospect of being involved in researching and applying innovative technology to the care of patients and in assisting health professionals in their work by enabling more effective and efficient care to be delivered.
