Frist Nursing Informatics Center

Technology to Support Learning (Nursing Informatics)

Vanderbilt University School of Nursing is a leader in developing and using advanced nursing informatics. This integration of nursing science, computer science and information science is having a dramatic positive impact on nursing education, management and patient care.

We are using new technologies for enhanced classroom and distributed learning. Our advanced use of technology is preparing our graduates to improve patient outcomes in a variety of practice settings following graduation.


Located on the second floor of Frist Hall, FNIC offers support for tech, audiovisual, web and communications needs of students, faculty and staff of VUSN. The center operates a suite of three computing labs in Frist Hall and supports student computing in activity spaces within the nursing complex, including wireless in hallways and wireless and wired in classrooms, labs and the student lounge.
