The University of Minnesota School of Nursing’s new Healthy Communities Innovation Center (HCIC) continues to progress toward completion. The project is slated to wrap up this winter.
For those who might be unfamiliar with the project, the HCIC is designed to greatly enhance the School’s ability to educate through innovate approaches.
Today, education simulation is recognized as a critically important educational method for effective knowledge and skill development and also aids student transition into practice.
The new HCIC will use a team approach and innovation to enhance the outcomes we can achieve through integrated, coordinated, safe, patient-centered and evidence-based care delivery.
The HCIC will also provide expanded opportunities for nursing and interprofessional collaboration to enhance quality, safety, care coordination and continuity which are key to transforming nursing and health professional education and the health care system.
Stay tuned to the Health Talk Blog for future updates as the center closes in on completion in December or January. For more construction photos, click here.
