Leary, director of innovation at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, says nurses can make great innovation leaders.

Nurses are essential to the successful delivery of care and creating good patient experiences, which is why their voices must be included in higher-level discussions at healthcare organizations. Nurses’ work styles also make them uniquely qualified to be innovation leaders within their spaces, says Marion Leary, director of innovation at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, where she’s also a doctoral student.

Leary is host of Penn’s Amplify Nursing podcast, which features conversations with nurses leading the way in nursing science, policy and innovation. She spoke with HealthTech about why innovation is important for nursing and problem-solving in healthcare.
