Fatima Gatela, BSN, RN-BC
Nursing Informatics Advocate and Career Strategist
I’m a naturalized citizen who immigrated to the USA when I was 30 years old.
I don’t have a Master’s degree in Nursing Informatics.
When I started out, I didn’t have any connections in the Nursing Informatics world and had no one to guide me.
But I didn't make those challenges stop me from reaching my dream of becoming an Informatics Nurse.
♦ I'll be celebrating 11 years as an Informatics Nurse in June this year!
♦ I've had the opportunity to work at some of the finest academic medical centers in the U.S.
♦ I've presented a poster at the Nursing Informatics Symposium at HIMSS Global Conference and Exposition.
♦ I was able to work as a Consultant for several years, which gave me the ability to work from anywhere (WFA) and the opportunity to spend significant time at home during my daughter's key formative years.
♦ I have coached or mentored other nurses in Nursing Informatics.
Ten years ago, I was in a situation similar to where you are today.
I was an ICU nurse in a large and highly-respected academic center. I loved my job and my colleagues.
But somehow I felt that I could do something more – I wanted to work in a career where I could make a difference in patients' lives and help other clinicians, while at the same time use more of my natural strengths, abilities, and interests.
I wanted to switch to a career in Nursing Informatics, but I just didn’t know where to start.
Since then, I’ve worked as:
♦ An electronic health record (EHR) Application Analyst at a wonderful academic medical center in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
♦ A Project Consultant at one of the top five academic medical centers in the U.S., and able to work from anywhere (WFA) for up to 80% of the time.
♦ A Health Information Program Manager with expertise in medical record regulatory standards and policy, managing a portfolio of more than 100 Nursing-related compliance reports and coordinating multiple enterprise-wide committees, projects, and work groups that all work together to ensure optimal health information integrity for the organization.
