New Sigma title encourages nurse leaders to seize the opportunity to transform nursing

INDIANAPOLIS—Nursing is at a crossroads and needs a new strategic vision. In the newest title from Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing (Sigma), The Innovation Handbook: A Nurse Leader’s Guide to Transforming Nursing by Bonnie Clipper, nurse leaders at all levels will find the tools to meet the moment.

The Innovation Handbook builds the case for innovation from the bottom up, beginning with the current state of nursing and the need for transformation and how nurses can and should be the drivers in leading the way. From there, Clipper explains concepts and equips nurses with a knowledge foundation that enhances their innovation skill set, spurs ideas and creativity, and challenges them to think differently and apply new concepts. This way, informed and empowered nurses can re-envision roles, integrate technologies, and develop new models to deliver the highest level of patient care.

“My hope is that all nurses will see the value in changing the way we practice nursing and lean more heavily into the continuum of both the art and the science of nursing by adopting technology to meet our needs,” said Clipper.
