The Voice for Nursing Informatics in Canada
The Canadian Nursing Informatics Association (CNIA) exists to help nurses across Canada to learn, share, research, and create informatics-related projects and experiences that can help to boost the competencies, theory, and practice of informatics on a national level.
The mission of the CNIA is to be the voice for Nursing Informatics in Canada. Recognizing the importance of the work the CNIA is undertaking, the Canadian Nurses Association has granted Associate Group status to the CNIA. The CNIA is also affiliated with COACH and the IMIA-SIGNI.
WHY JOIN: Membership in CNIA allows you as a member to learn, share through a strong diverse membership network and influence national/jurisdictional informatics activities that will help boost nursing competencies, theory, and practice of informatics on the national level.
