Hello,
I graduated with my MSN with an emphasis in health informatics last year and I am still having difficulty finding a job. Everyone is requiring 3+ years experience. I am currently working on getting my certification in hopes that will help. Any other ideas on where to look for jobs in this field with little to no experience outside school?

I struggled with finding someone who would give me a chance without much experience too. In my experience, its all about how you present yourself. Apply even if you don't meet all the qualifications and if you interview but don't get it, ask for feedback for the next one.

That’s what I’ve been going with too. I’m hoping someone will give me a chance. For now I’m working on my certification

Do you have any informatics experience- ie serving as a super user or on unit/department/service line councils? That is something I look for when recruiting

Yes I was the super user in the OR. I have now switched to clinical documentation specialist and I step into minor leadership roles all the time when my manager isn’t available to run our morning meetings. I have been putting this on all my applications- nothing

Have you tried at ALL the EHRs. There are tons of smaller web-based once’s that aren’t Cerner, Epic, Athena, Allscripts? Large Hospital systems typically have informatic roles? I guess the question is “What are you wanting to do your credentials?”

Great suggestion! I’ve have used Cerner, Epic, and Meditech. I have found that the larger hospitals want more experience in comparison to the smaller health systems. I have found I love being a trainer and being in collaboration meetings to give my insight on how nurses use the system.
