5112. Healthcare Opportunities for System Level Solutions

3.00 credits

Prerequisites: NURS 5111 or instructor consent.

Grading Basis: Graded

Use of principles identified in NURS 5111 to identify opportunities in health care (e.g., problems to be solved). Nurses and healthcare professionals work around problems every day. Yet, rarely are these workarounds viewed as system level opportunities for improvements. Emphasize the critical thinking and creativity needed to identify a problem, and instead of determining how to solve for one, focus on how one might be able to solve for the many. By the end of this course, students should feel confident in their ability to recognize opportunities and begin to move toward a system (e.g., organizational) level thinking instead of an individual level thinking. Focus on the individual as the innovator.
