Nursing Informatics History Project

Purpose

The overall purpose of the Nursing Informatics History Project is to document and preserve the history of nursing informatics. This is occurring through three activities:

  1. Nursing informatics pioneers and nursing informatics organizations have been solicited to preserve their materials in an archive at the National Library of Medicine started by Dr. Virginia Saba in 1997.
  2. Stories of the pioneers in nursing informatics are being videotaped and made available through AMIA's web site.
  3. Historical research is planned to document the evolution of informatics as a specialty in nursing.
