To connect, collaborate, and celebrate innovation across the nursing profession, ANA is hosting several events throughout the year to showcase the creativity and ingenuity of nurses who are leading change or driving healthcare transformation.
Join us on September 14 for this one-day virtual event focused on policy, innovation, and advocacy. Learn how public policy and delivery system innovations are impacting the nursing profession and how nurses can amplify their voice through advocacy. Participants will see the interplay between innovations in health delivery and policy. Panel presentations will explore the expanded use of virtual care to reduce disparities, the impact of Covid19 on the profession, and successful strategies to advance innovative health models. Breakout sessions will include design thinking, advocacy, telehealth, and other key drivers of health policy. Registration Coming Soon.
Nurses are continuously innovating to address the needs and challenges across healthcare. The ANA Innovation Awards highlights, recognizes, and celebrates nurse-led innovation that improves patient safety and outcomes. Innovations fall into two categories – the creation of something new or an improvement upon something existing.
The Innovation Award categories include:
- Care delivery models
- New program
- Process improvement
Applicants have a chance to win a $25,000 individual nurse award and a $50,000 nurse-led team award. See the past winners. Applications accepted June 1-October 31.
More information coming soon.
