This highly interactive virtual program in Design Thinking is specifically created for nurses, with keynotes from talented nurse innovators. Participants will become certified in the Design Thinking Process and enabled to practice and apply the principles in the realm of the healthcare space, challenging us to think and operate differently. Following our inaugural event for VCU Health Nurses in December 2020, we’re excited that our second event will also be tailored to Nurses and offered to nurses nationwide.
