new Essential IT Skills Programme - EITS

It's a refreshing change to learn of something IT on a mental health nursing list, but that is the case with a new IT skills initiative:

NHS Connecting for Health (NHS CFH) has announced that it will be introducing the Essential IT Skills (EITS) Programme on 3 March 2008, to replace its European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) Service which is due to close on 21 March 2008.

The PSYCHIATRIC NURSING list is 10 years old and currently deliberating upon its future, wider membership and the state of IT skills.
