  <Nursing Informatics> <Nursing Leadership> Observations (Similarities/Differences)
Ethics Ethics is dictated by the personal view of what is right and that which is wrong 

. Cultural values tend to shape one’s perception of right and wrong. Laws are also utilized in dictating that which is right and what is wrong.

Some of the ethical principles in the nursing informatics role include privacy of information, strictness on data collection only where such information is valuable and needed, enhancing data integrity, informed consent of the owners of such data and adherence to the existent laws (McCormick & Saba, 2015).




Principles of beneficence, informed consent of the study participant’s and integrity are some of the major guiding ethical principles in nursing leadership (Cherry & Jacob, 2016). Nurse leaders have a role to play in ensuring that the benefits that are derived from a study are beneficial to the nurses and the patients and privacy and informed consent of the patients are also enhanced.   The key difference between ethical consideration in the nursing informatics role and in nursing leadership role is that nursing leadership integrates ethics in dissemination of care to patients while ethics in nursing informatics role is primary based on data collection, storage and utilization of clinical data in clinical practice. However, they are both grounded on similar ethical principles.
Education The informatics nurse needs to take up training programs in nursing informatics, preferably at the graduate level to enable him or her to executive his or her duties effectively. 




Nurse leaders often have to take up education programs through pursuits in undergraduate and post graduate degrees in nursing. They can also take up roles in effecting health policy, facilitate nursing research and entrench evidence based practices. The education pursuit of the informatics nurses enhances their capability of integrating technology to nursing practice. This is based on their first degree at the graduate level. On the other hand, nurse leaders take up more professional training that would enable them shape health policy and leadership of nursing units.
Leadership The nursing informatics manager has a key role in gaining knowledge on nursing informatics and being an influencer in the future informatics practice (McCormick & Saba, 2015)That they head the informatics department ensures that nurse informatcists influence some policies therein. 




The nurse leader recruits, delegates, mentors and heads the nursing units,. They are also in the front line of delivery of care to their patients. While the nurse leader is the head of the nursing unit, the informatics nurse heads the informatics department. They play a complimentary role in enhancing quality of care that a medical facility offers to their patients.
Public Health Informatics nurses play a key role in dissemination of information that could be used in the analysis of spread of a given infection, thus, enhancing quick and accurate response to public health issues. 



Nurse leaders facilitate research on public health issues which would then effect policy for the management of the public health out breaks that could result (Cherry & Jacob, 2016). While the role of the nursing informatics is to disseminate information, the nurse leaders define the public health policy to be utilized.
Health Care Administration The role of the nursing informatics is only limited to data management. 




The nurse leader is in charge of routine running of the health care administration and all clinical operations in it. While the informatics role is only limited to data management, the nurse leaders manage the entire health care administration including the department headed by the informatics manager.
Informatics The nursing informatics role is possible with certification from American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). In addition, they need to have experience as a registered nurse with approximately 2000 hours of clinical practice (Collen & Ball, 2015). 



The nurse leader needs to hold a BSN besides being a registered use with more than 1000 hours of nursing practice. They could also play a pertinent role as nurse researchers with capability of data collection during clinical trials (Cherry & Jacob, 2016). The informatics role is an exclusive role that is reserved for the informatics nurse.
Business/Finance The informatics nurses do not shape the budgets of their office and have to solely rely on those approved by the nurse leaders. 



The nurse leader budgets for the entire nursing unit. The nurse leader approves the budget proposal that is raised by the informatics nurse.
Specialty (e.g., Family, Acute Care) The specialty of the informatics nurses is that of maintaining healthcare data based on the existent healthcare policies and laws. Their specialty tends to range from acute care for the nurses, family medicine and general practice. The specialty of the nurse leaders is to look into ways through which care could be advanced to the public and patients visiting a facility. While the specialty of the informatics nurse is primarily on the management of health information and data, the specialty of the nurse leaders range from general care to the acute care wards.
Regulatory Bodies or Certification Agencies That Provide Guidance or Parameters on How These Roles Incorporate Concepts Into Practice The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) is the major regulatory body. National council of States Boards of Nursing is the major regulatory authority for the nurse leaders. Both the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and National council of States Boards of Nursing regulate nurses of all specialties.

Indeed someone to complete the template well
Advanced registered nurses work in highly collaborative environments and must collaborate with interdisciplinary teams in order to provide excellent patient care. Besides knowing the role and scope of one’s own practice, it is essential to understand the role and scope of other nurse specialties to ensure effective collaboration among nurses, the organization, and other professionals with whom advanced registered nurses regularly interact.

Use the “Nursing Roles Graphic Organizer Template” to differentiate how advanced registered nurse roles relate to and collaborate with different areas of nursing practice. Compare your future role with one of the following: nurse educator; nurse leader; family nurse practitioner; acute care nurse practitioner; graduate nurse with an emphasis/specialty in public health, health care administration, business, or informatics; clinical nurse specialist; doctor of nursing practice. Indicate in the appropriate columns on the template which roles you are comparing.

Make sure to compare the following areas of practice in your graphic organizer:

Public Health
Health Care Administration
Specialty (e.g., Family, Acute Care)
Include any regulatory bodies or certification agencies that provide guidance or parameters on how these roles incorporate concepts into practice.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
