Is nursing process relevant to informatics?
Advance for LPNs
According to the American Nurses Association, the nursing process is the "common thread uniting different types of nurses who work in varied areas is the nursing process - the essential core of practice for the registered nurse to deliver holistic, patient-focused care." The steps that define the Nursing Process are Assessment, Diagnosis, Outcomes/Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation. Funny, this sounds a lot like what nurse informaticists do, doesn't it?

New law lets nurse practitioners get more involved
Las Vegas Review-Journal
Collaborative physicians are required by the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners to monitor, at least once a month, the quality of care provided by a nurse practitioner, which can include direct observation of patient examinations, and an assessment of a sample of referrals, consultations and patients' charts to ensure that proper protocols are followed. That changes July 1 when a bill will allow nurse practitioners to practice independently of a doctor and to the full extent of their training, a healthcare delivery system already in place in 16 other states and the District of Columbia.
