The TIGER Leadership Development Collaborative Team report is available.  Please click image on left to download.

One of the highest priorities identified at the TIGER Summit was to develop revolutionary leadership that drives, empowers and executes the transformation of healthcare. Nursing leaders are often developed on the job, and the competencies defined by the TIGER Informatics Competencies Collaborative  are only the beginning of the informatics competencies necessary to lead an organization through the change that technology requires.  This transformation requires nursing leadership to understand, promote, own, and measure the success of health IT. 


  • Develop programs for nurse executives and faculty that stress the value of information technology and empower them to use HIT knowledgably.
  • Expand and integrate informatics competencies into Nursing Leadership Development Programs.
  • Promote sharing of best practices using HIT effectively to improve the delivery of nursing care.
  • Promote alignment with the Magnet Recognition Program as a mechanism to demonstrate nursing excellence in using technology to improve nursing practice and the delivery of safer, more effective patient care.
