The demands of health care are calling for a new generation of thinkers who want to be agents of care innovation – a skill set typically gained after experience in the field or through post graduate and advanced education. We are planning to incorporate the concept of entrepreneurial thought and initiative throughout the 4-year nursing curriculum. UConn nurses will not only be trained as leaders in the delivery of healthcare, but empowered to be leaders for change by being prepared to contribute as innovators in their work environments when they begin their careers.
