Whilst there is a strong interest in nursing informatics in the graduate nurse population, nursing informatics has been slow to be incorporated into the undergraduate nursing curriculum. Nursing schools in Australia, Canada, and Denmark are all currently involved in redeveloping their curricula to include nursing informatics in a meaningful way. This paper provides a brief historical description of the uptake of nursing informatics in each of the three countries and discusses the required future directions and strategies towards incorporating nursing informatics into the undergraduate curriculum.
