Continuing the Discussion: Information Needs of Nurses Across the Career Continuum

Continuing the Discussion: Information Needs of Nurses Across the Career Continuum

Date: Tuesday, February 16
Location: Library, 
CCRI Flanagan Campus - Directions and Campus Map

Join the continuation of the discussion about understanding and filling information literacy /research needs  of nurses as they move along a continuum which includes beginning students, practicing nurses in the workplace, advanced doctorate students and nursing educators.   What do they need to know, when do they need to know it, and how do they acquire it?  Bring your ideas and experiences to the table so we can work together to meet the growing needs of our nurses! 

Contact Pat Gorman with questions at pagorman@ccri.edu.

If you're new to the conversation, Rachel Carpenter and Pat Gorman have put together the documents:

  • Discussion points
  • Nursing Schools in RI
  • a recent article on information literacy competency standards for nursing

Here is a link to the ACRL literacy competency standards for nursing. http://www.ala.org/acrl/standards/nursing

While the focus of the discussion will be about nursing, this discussion should be helpful to those working with other health professionals. 


Upcoming Events
