When Mimi Hassett, Anne Arundel Medical Center Home Health nurse, decided to travel "down under" in April, she made the trip work for herpersonnally and professionally.
She attended an international conference in Melbourne, Australia, as part of her studies for a master's degree in the new field of nursing informatics. She also took an opportunity to explore New Zealand for a week.
Nursing informatics is the study of computers in the practice of nursing. The computer has become the tool to store, manipulate and retrieve information.
