Stories of innovation and entrepreneurship

All stories

An education in innovation and entrepreneurship can bring change in an array of areas. An entrepreneurial mindset can be as valuable for nurses or teachers as for students or alumni founding tech startups, and for employees in academia or large private and public organizations.


A modern time­piece for nurses

Watches used by nurses in clinical settings have largely stayed the same since the beginning. They show the time, hang on the gown and that's about it. In a clinical setting, nurses use time to monitor vitals, judge how soon medications work etc. Some opt to use a more modern wristwatch with advanced functions to keep track of time while working. Wristwatches represent a significant risk to hygiene and could potentially be hazardous to patients. I aim to develop a more modern timepiece to hang on a gown with functions relevant to nurses and clinicians.
