OntarioLearn description: In this course, nursing students will be provided with opportunities to develop and demonstrate the College of Nurses of Ontario RN Entry-to Practice competencies as it relates to information communication technologies (ICTs). The students will be provided opportunities to explore the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for information and health literacies to strengthen their competence in nursing informatics.
