OBJECTIVE: The purposes of this study were to analyze the current status of nursing informatics course and to develop the standardized curriculum in nursing informatics course based on competency.

METHODS: Data were collected through two phases. In the first phase, a survey was conducted on 115 nursing institutions to analyze the current status of nursing informatics course. In the second phase, two-round delphi technique was developed to determine the priority and relative weight of contents in nursing informatics course. Final samples composed of both 43 nursing institutions and 11 nursing informatics experts.

RESULTS: Out of 43 nursing schools, 13 nursing schools offered nursing informatics course. Nursing informatics was taught mostly to the second year and had 2 credits. About 54% of respondents disagreed that nursing informatics should be included in the license examination for Registered Nurse. The subject matrix by priority and relative weight and a standardized curriculum for nursing informatics were developed.

CONCLUSION: Continuous application and revision of nursing informatics curriculum should be needed.
