At their May 6, 2021 meeting, the NMNEC Leadership Council approved a recommendation from the NMNEC Curriculum Committee and the NMNEC Evidence Concept & EBP Course Task Force to move the Technology and Informatics concept out of the Evidence-Based Practice Course and into the Introduction to Nursing Concepts course, starting with the Fall 2021 semester/term. Prior to this change, the Technology and Informatics concept was not officially assigned to a NMNEC ADN course as the Evidence-Based Practice course is taught only in the NMNEC BSN Program of Study. However, the Technology and Informatics concept is recognized as important for all pre-licensure nursing students to be familiar with and the ADN programs have been teaching the concept all along. This change formalizes what has been already happening in many NMNEC programs in that the Technology and Informatics concept and its exemplars are to be taught in the Introduction to Nursing Concepts course. This change is to be officially implemented no later than Fall 2021.
