My name is Jasmine and I have been a nurse since 2015. I have worked as a school nurse, OR nurse and a clinic nurse. I had no idea how challenging working as a clinic nurse would be. I got to start 1 month before transitioning to EPIC and it was quite challenging. Research plays an important part in all aspects of nursing including finding the best EMR to work with. EPIC is one complex EMR and I feel like it has many advantages over other systems. EMR’s can enhance patient care, facilitate workflow and patient safety. EMR’s are always updating and changing on a daily basis. It really impacts how care is done in different facilities. EMR’s can also be good tools to complete research such as following health trends and tracking illnesses and patient loads.
