Author biography

Toni Hebda, PhD, RN-C, CNE, is a professor with the Chamberlain College of Nursing MSN Program teaching in the nursing informatics track. She has held several academic and clinical positions over the years and worked as a system analyst. Her interest in informatics provided a focus for her dissertation, and subsequently led her to help establish a regional nursing informatics group, obtain a graduate degree in information science, and conduct research related to informatics. She is a reviewer for the Online Journal of Nursing Informatics. She is a member of informatics groups and has presented and published in the field.

Kathy Hunter, PhD, FAAN, RN-BC, CNE
, is a professor with the Chamberlain College of Nursing MSN Program, teaching in the nursing informatics track. She has more than 40 years of experience in the fields of nursing informatics, healthcare informatics, and nursing education. After conducting clinical practice in critical care and trauma nursing for several years, she began practicing nursing informatics (NI), and working with end users and with information systems design, development, testing, implementation, and evaluation. She has presented nursing-informatics research in national and international meetings as well as publishing numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals. Collaborating in a community of practice with nursing-informatics faculty at Chamberlain, Dr. Hunter led the work resulting in the development of the TIGER-based Assessment of Nursing Informatics Competencies (TANIC) tool.
