5113. Developing and Leading a Sustainable Culture of Healthcare Innovation

3.00 credits

Prerequisites: NURS 5111 or instructor consent.

Grading Basis: Graded

Introduction to the essential concepts of organizational change, leadership, and project management necessary to build and foster a culture of healthcare innovation. To innovate, one must also have an environment that allows innovation to grow and flourish. While we do need individuals to know how to think and act innovatively, we also need leaders who can embrace these behaviors and build a culture that supports such efforts. Traditionally, our healthcare environments have tended to reward ?we?ve always done it this way? behaviors and stunt those who identify opportunities for improvement as disruptive. Students will learn the importance of effective leadership with any organizational change. Project management is an essential skill for any leader in healthcare and especially that of new changes being introduced to an environment.
