Electronic Nursing Notes: A Case Study on Interdisciplinary Collaboration
Howard, Elizabeth V.; Teets, Janet
Journal of Educational Technology Systems, v34 n4 p447-459 2005-2006
In an interdisciplinary collaboration between the Computer & Information Technology (CIT) and Nursing (NSG) Departments at the Middletown and Hamilton regional campuses of Miami University (of Ohio), student team members created a Web-based application to create Electronic Nursing Notes. Students from the two departments worked together to design and develop the application, which will be used by the Nursing Department to teach their students. The NSG students were the customers and provided samples of a paper-based system currently used by the hospital where the nurses worked. From those samples, and with much interaction with the NSG students, the CIT students created the Electronic Nursing Notes application. In this article, we describe the project and present reactions from both the student team members and also the faculty team members. (Contains 2 figures.)
