Why Is Innovation In Nursing Important?
By Jennifer Cota-Robles, Brandman University
Innovation is the action or process of transformation. The healthcare industry is constantly growing and transforming. It is crucial that today’s medical professionals stay relevant and abreast of the best possible options in patient care.
We are living in a digital world with information readily available to consumers. The demand for implementing emerging technology is quickly becoming a priority.
Brandman University focuses on creating innovative leaders for an ever-changing healthcare system. Courses are taught by nationally certified advanced practice registered nurses and accomplished academic experts in online education.
We understand the need to provide nurses and medical professionals with the opportunities to grow and learn as the industry evolves. That is why Brandman’s Marybelle and S. Paul Musco School of Nursing and Health Professions offers degrees that are almost entirely online.
Giving students the ability to work full time while they attend school and yet still including the necessary clinical training the nursing field requires.
Brandman University is able to meet the needs of working nurses who want career growth by blending together mandatory internships/clinical practice in hospitals, clinics/ health centers and online lectures, demonstrations, and exercises while providing 3-5 day immersion sessions twice a year.
Allowing the flexibility to work while attending school means more nurses having more opportunities to touch more lives in their hospitals, clinics, facilities, etc.
The Marybelle and S. Paul Musco School of Nursing and Health Professions is focused on the motto “Inquire, Innovate and Inspire”. As such, whenever possible, professors encourage students to use their current workplace to apply knowledge as it’s learned. This also allows students to see the results of their studies instantly.
So why is innovation so important in nursing? Innovation is crucial because Federal legislation and the aging baby-boomer population are demanding more preventive healthcare across the United States. Hospitals, medical insurance companies, politicians and patients are calling for it now.
More preventive care means the industry will require more Registered Nurses and Nurse Practitioners. According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics the demand for Registered Nurses is projected to grow at a rate of 16% from 2014-2024.
Job growth forecasts for Nurse Practitioners during the same period is 31%. Without innovations in education, technology and practice the healthcare industry will not meet the needs necessary to sustain our society’s demand for medical care.
Do you have the skills necessary to evolve with the industry? Brandman University’s Marybelle and S. Paul Musco School of Nursing and Health Professions developed programs to help you keep up to pace with the demands and advance into the next stage of your career.
