Welcome NIAA members



Following an extended absence during the pandemic and AHS Connect Care launches, the Nursing Informatics Association of Alberta

(NIAA)is currently undertaking a membership drive and other work to better support our members. Our members are striving to advance

the profession and improve healthcare in Alberta through informatics. For example, our members include individuals who are:

  • Working in nursing informatics roles within their organizations.

  • Working with clinical information systems, nursing workload systems, etc.

  • Responsible for managing or leading projects related to health/nursing informatics.

  • Eager to collaborate and network with other individuals involved in nursing informatics.

  • Teaching nursing informatics and digital health to current and future nurses.

  • Interested in developing standards for nursing informatics in Alberta.

  • Interested in research, quality improvement, data analytics, meaningful use and outcome measurement in nursing informatics.

A few updates and requests:

  1. Membership: We thank you for being a member. To ensure that we have accurate and updated records, we kindly ask you to complete the New Membership form for the 2023-2024 year.

  2. Currently, there are NO costs associated with joining NIAA. 

  3. NIAA Executive Board: Currently, all board positions (President; Vice President; Communications Officer; Education Coordinator; Treasurer; Secretary & Member Services; CNIA Jurisdictional Representative) are vacant. Our priority is to fill these vacancies so that the board can begin to guide the association in its current and future activities. We value your participation in this process and encourage you to consider this opportunity in the future. A call for nomination for the executive board will be announced soon, and we hope you will consider nominating yourself or a colleague for one of these roles.  

Please view our NIAA website anytime!
