Departments: Spotlight on Innovation

The pace and scope of change in the US healthcare industry has been relentless. Organizational and system responses include dramatic redesign of structures, processes, and services to support cross-continuum care. The education of nursing students must keep up with rapid delivery system change. Beyond significant curricular revision, innovation in undergraduate clinical rotations to better prepare students for cross-continuum practice will be key.
