Informatics Nurse Specialists

Employment Prospects


Informatics nurse specialists work in hospitals, clinics, and nursing homes. They are also employed in health care consulting firms, universities, and corporations. The job closest to that of informatics nurse specialists that the Department of Labor provides data on is computer systems analysts, and in May 2016, about 600,000 were employed in the United States. Of these, only about 40,000 worked in hospitals and the offices of health care practitioners, many of whom perform duties unrelated to health informatics, making informatics nurse specialists a relatively small, specialized—but growing—field. Related professionals, medical records and health information technicians, held approximately 200,000 jobs, primaily in hospitals, doctors' offices, and nursing homes in 2016.
