Fatima Gatela, BSN, RN-BC
Informatics Nurse Advocate and Career Strategist
🔹 I’m a naturalized U.S. citizen who immigrated to the U.S. when I was already 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.
Here are some of my major milestones in the Nursing Informatics specialty:
♦ I'm celebrating 11 years as an Informatics Nurse in June 2021!
♦ I've landed 4 distinct Informatics Nurse jobs at some of the best academic medical centers in the U.S.
♦ One of those NI jobs was a role as a Project Consultant that gave me the ability to work remote/work from anywhere (WFA) and the opportunity to spend significant time at home during my daughter's key formative years.
♦ Nationally board-certified in Informatics Nursing by ANCC since 2018.
♦ Presented a poster at the Nursing Informatics Symposium at HIMSS Global Conference and Exposition in 2019.
♦ Trained, coached and mentored other nurses in Nursing Informatics.
Eleven years ago, I was an ICU nurse in a large and highly-respected academic center.
I worked in a great organization with wonderful colleagues.
But deep in my heart I knew that I wanted to work in a career where I could make a difference in patients' lives and help other clinicians AND use more of my natural strengths, abilities, and interests in a job that I was excited to wake up to every day, regardless of the challenges.
I wanted to switch to a career in Nursing Informatics, but I just didn’t know where to start.
I decided to take the first step, and began an amazing journey that surpassed even my own imagination.
Since then, I’ve worked as:
♦ An electronic health record (EHR) Application Analyst at an academic medical center in the San Francisco Bay Area.
♦ A Project Consultant at one of the Top 3 academic medical centers in the U.S., and was 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. In this role I also coordinate multiple enterprise-wide committees, projects, and work groups that work together to ensure optimal health information integrity for the organization.
I invite you to the webinar and learn from my experience of more than a decade navigating and mastering this specialty, and begin to #thinkbeyond!
My search for a nurse informatics position was a nineteen-month anguish-filled journey after I graduated with an MSN in informatics. I had a lot of initial interviews and panel interviews, albeit no offers. I was very close to enrolling in an FNP program due to the angst from many failed attempts when I crossed paths with TheInformaticsNurse.
The weekly coaching seminars and exercises helped me discover myself, optimise my CV, arm me with interview strategies and talking points, and most importantly instill confidence, and perseverance towards my career goals. After another round of interviews, I had the unique problem of choosing one of the two job offers I received.
I believe the knowledge gained from this coaching program monstrously augmented my qualities as a potential candidate.

I found Fatima’s program to be very informative by helping me with my struggles to find my way into a future in nursing informatics. Fatima was fantastic. I was so pleased with the structure and focus of each session each week.
Fatima has taught me a tremendous amount of skills, techniques and has excellent resources for my career development and offered me with tools needed to find a job relating to nursing informatics.
I highly recommend Fatima’s Nursing Informatics Now group coaching program.

I wanted to say thank you for your time and commitment to help me during my informatics course! I thoroughly enjoyed learning from you and was very encouraged throughout the program.
I can clearly see your passion and commitment to helping nurses develop their informatics career and am so glad I participated in this program. I now
have an updated and focused resume, more knowledge and background about NI and the confidence and plan to continue to move forward -- all from your program, thank you!
Feel free to use any of this as a testimonial for the program - I highly recommend it!
