    As we continue to engage with nurses across the country to advance digital health and nursing informatics we are pleased to introduce three new regional chapters. The Atlantic, Prairie and BC-North groups are in the process of forming and will be launching webpages on this site soon! When you renew your CNIA membership for 2024 you will be asked to identify your geographic region and automatically be enrolled in your regional chapter (if available). The Chapter groups have exciting plans for connecting folks within their regions and we look forward to this opportunity to continue to build our national CNIA network!

    The Canadian Chief Nursing Officer role has been reinstated. Strong leadership has never been more important for nurses across the country.  See the response below:

    There is an ever increasing focus on implementing and optimizing information technology in healthcare settings. The role of the Chief Medical Information Officer (CMIO) is well established across Canada, but the role of the Chief Nursing Informatics Officer (CNIO) has not received the same amount of recognition. See the paper below for more details about the role, and the infographic for associated competencies for nursing informatics leaders.

    **New award: Diversifying & Strengthening Nursing Informatics**

    At CNIA, we recognize that there is a persistent homogeneity in nursing leadership and informatics, with members frequently belonging to historically dominant and privileged groups that do not reflect the diversity of the nursing profession nor of the Canadian population.

    To help address this issue, we’re thrilled to launch a new award for diversifying and strengthening nursing informatics in Canada. Two $500 awards and free virtual conference registration will be made available.

    Applicants (nurses or nursing students) will be asked to share how historically under-represented perspectives in nursing informatics, including their own, are necessary to improve digital health for all (i.e., the use of data and digital technologies in healthcare - including social media and apps).

    CNIA membership is not required to apply, but we encourage all applicants to join. Remember – student membership is free! The deadline to apply is now Friday April 29th, 11:59pm EST.

    For further instructions and the link to the Google submission form, please download this pdf.


    Nouveaux prix : Diversifier et renforcer l’informatique infirmière

    Au CNIA, nous reconnaissons qu’il existe une homogénéité persistante dans le direction infirmier et l’informatique, les membres appartenant souvent à des groupes historiquement dominants et privilégiés qui ne reflètent pas la diversité de la profession infirmière ni de la population canadienne.

    Pour aider à résoudre ce problème, nous sommes heureux de lancer un nouveau prix pour la diversification et le renforcement de l’informatique infirmière au Canada. Deux prix de 500 $ et l’inscription gratuite au conférence virtuelle seront offerts.

    Les candidats (infirmières ou étudiantes en soins infirmiers) seront invités à expliquer comment les perspectives historiquement sous-représentées en informatique des soins infirmiers, y compris les leurs, sont nécessaires pour améliorer la santé numérique pour tous (donc l’utilisation des données et des technologies numériques dans les soins de santé - y compris les médias sociaux et les applications).

    L’adhésion à l’ACII n’est pas obligatoire, mais nous encourageons tous les candidats à s’inscrire. N’oubliez pas que l’adhésion des étudiants est gratuite! La date limite pour présenter une demande est le 29 avril, 2022, 23h59.
