The COVID-19 pandemic is creating challenges for us globally, nationally, and locally – pressures we have never faced before in this country. On behalf of the ANIA Board of Directors, I want share how ANIA is working to support you during this unprecedented time.
COVID-19 Information & Resources
We will continue to update our COVID-19 webpage with evidence-based information as quickly as it becomes available.
Community & Membership Benefits
Community is vital at this time! Please stay in touch with your colleagues via our social media sites and ANIA Connect. If you haven’t had time to renew your ANIA membership, you will continue to receive these valuable membership benefits – access to ANIA Connect and the Open Forum, education and free CNE in the Online Library, the Journal of Informatics Nursing, and more.
Monthly Free CNE
The monthly members-only free CNE sessions in the Online Library will be available for redemption for an extended period of time. Free CNE sessions usually are redeemable for 1 month only; however, due to extra demands the COVID-19 outbreak may have placed on your time, ANIA’s monthly free CNE sessions (beginning with March) will be available for redemption through the end of this summer.
To respect your limited time, we will strive to limit the number of emails we send to you.
2020 ANIA Conference Rescheduled
The 2020 ANIA Annual Conference been rescheduled to August 20-22 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. Same location, same speakers, same hands-on learning, same fun with a new date! Conference registration and hotel reservations are now open for the rescheduled conference dates.
Thank You for Your Commitment!
We are so proud of how informatics nurses across the country are meeting current practice challenges - working to add COVID-19 documentation to the electronic health record and helping to establish workflow processes that will support your organizations. Some of you are even buffing up your nursing skills as you expect to provide direct patient care during this crisis.
How Else Can We Help?
We are grateful for the work you do and are committed to supporting you. ANIA National Office staff are fully operational and working virtually to serve you. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any needs or suggestions. AINA is here for you.
