Welcome to Healthcare Innovation & EntrepreNURSEship!

As we start the new school year, we would like to share some exciting new changes in leadership and program direction:

Nurse Innovation and Entrepreneurship (NIE) aimed to redefine nurse education by incorporating skills in business, innovation and entrepreneurship. Healthcare Innovation & EntrepreNURSEship (HIE) will expand upon the previous success of NIE to include and incorporate all healthcare professions, but still build upon the contribution from nurses and nursing professionals.
HIE will expand the nurse innovation platform across all Bouve' healthcare professionals.

Each healthcare professional plays an integral role in maximizing health and reducing health care disparities. Nurses, representing the nation's largest group of healthcare professionals, coupled with their integral role as frontline 24/7 caregivers, have an unique perspective on innovative healthcare solutions, products, and processes. However, the best and most cost-effective outcomes for patients can only be achieved when all members of the healthcare team work collaboratively to create the innovation required for continual progress in both practice, service and research.

Northeastern University is already known for its real-world experiential approach to learning. It is our mission to become known as the institution that unites health care team members to harness their collective power to create global health care solutions that enhance the quality of care.
