NR599 Nursing Informatics for Advanced Practice
Week 2 Discussion
Pre TANIC Self-Assessment and Reflection Post
The self-assessment is completed using the TIGER-based Assessment of Nursing Informatics Competencies (TANIC) tool. TIGER refers to the Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform Initiative which identified a list of the minimum informatics competencies for all nurses and students graduating from pre- and post-licensure programs. The graded self-evaluation of your informatics competencies is required in order to increase ones own
understanding of competencies in nursing informatics which will enable the planning of strategies to enhance knowledge and skills.
