Center for Nursing Informatics faculty are at the leading edge of nurses’ involvement in several national and international initiatives. We look forward to the 11th annual Nursing Knowledge: Big Data Science (NKBDS) conference June 7-9, 2023, focused on The Value of Nursing. This conference brings together experts and participants who will challenge each other’s thinking about the value of nursing and the ways informatics can foster improvements in nursing practice, research, education and leadership.
