Dr. Virginia K. Saba was a multifaceted nurse informaticist. However, not all nurse informaticists, especially nurses just entering informatics practice, are aware of her profound impact on the evolution of informatics. Although many experienced informatics nurses, had the opportunity to meet and work with Dr. Saba, they have not shared with others the impact Dr. Saba had on their careers.
