“For nurses who want to discover and implement innovative healthcare solutions to create value for patients, community, and the healthcare industry.”
What will you learn?
What can you do with it?
The program will focus on introducing participants to the principles and actions used for new product and service commercialization/innovation that happens both inside existing organizations as well as through the creation of startup ventures.
A combination of innovation and entrepreneurship theory combined with applied learning from nurses who have led innovation within their organizations and/or started their own healthcare businesses. Among other learnings, the program serves as an introduction on how to cultivate a new idea, how to test your most critical assumptions, how to find and speak with prospective stakeholders, and how to rapidly iterate ideas based on real stakeholder feedback.
The curriculum will include education on tools such as the Entrepreneurial Mindset Profile (EMP), Lean Startup Methodology and approaches to corporate innovation, case study reviews, and learnings directly from nursing professionals who have launched new ideas in their fields in an effort to solve problems and improve the lives of others.
