Information technology is integral to health care delivery. Nurse leaders recognize the need to build intellectual capital (knowledge, skills, and experience) in use and oversight of electronic health records despite financial constraints on indirect care time. A systematic literature review was conducted to answer the question, "What are the best practices to build nursing intellectual capital for use of IT for safe clinical care?" Evidence was translated to support a planned electronic health record rollout.
