This 1 module (3 CE credit) course introduces nurses to the Diffusion of Innovation Theory which is often regarded as a valuable change model for guiding technological innovation where the innovation itself is modified and presented in ways that meet the needs across all levels of adopters. It also stresses the importance of communication and peer networking within the adoption process.

In simple terms, the diffusion of innovation refers to the process that occurs as people adopt a new idea, product, practice, philosophy, and so on.

This online course consists of a lesson, assigned readings and supportive media, and is evaluated by completing a multiple choice final examination.


On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Identify the category characteristics of innovation adopters in the Diffusion of Innovation theory as applied by Rogers.

2. Recognize the suitability and application of the Diffusion of Innovation theory in the field of nursing informatics specialization.

3. Describe the process and factors that ensure successful evolution along the S curve to the point of saturation.

4. Transpose the Diffusion of Innovation theory to their own development within the field of nursing informatics.
