How have their contributions shaped the field of nursing informatics?
What lessons can you take away from their experiences?
What skills or ideas demonstrated by these leaders might you apply to your professional practice?

Question: Post a brief description of the two innovators you selected and explain why. Include in your description how their contributions influenced health information technology and the professional accomplishments of each innovator. Then, describe how their contributions influenced nursing practice and how these contributions may have shaped the field of nursing informatics. Be specific. Then, explain any lessons you might take away from their experiences, including an explanation of how the skills or ideas demonstrated by these pioneers might apply to your professional practice.
