BCU Nursing Professor Presents at International Conference
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (Cathoilc Online) - Victoria L. S. Britson, Ph.D., ARNP-BC, CNE, professor of nursing at Briar Cliff University, recently presented "Imagine Our Education" at the Omaha System International Conference in Minneapolis.
In her presentation, Dr. Britson discussed the benefits and importance of using the Omaha System to document client care from admission to discharge. From a nurse educator's perspective, she analyzed the development, use and impact of electronic health records and standardized terminology in patient care.
"I have used the Omaha System for the past 10 years of my professional career," said Dr. Britson, program director for the Master of Science in Nursing at Briar Cliff. "This system is beneficial because it allows nurses to keep an organized, detailed account of every patient's visit to the hospital."
The Omaha System is intended for use across the continuum of care for individuals, families and communities who represent all ages, geographic locations, medical diagnoses, socio-economic ranges, spiritual beliefs, ethnicity and cultural values.
The "Imagine Our Education" workshop was attended by healthcare practitioners, managers, administrators, educators, students, programmers and IT staff who have the responsibility of teaching others in their organizations.
Briar Cliff University is a Catholic institution with an enrollment of more than 1,150 students from 29 states and 11 countries. Students are educated in the Franciscan tradition of excellence in the liberal arts and career preparation in an environment of care, compassion and service.
