On episode 459 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith welcomes back Dr. Bonnie Clipper, DNP, MBA, RN, CENP, FACHE, FAAN, a well-known nurse futurist, healthcare influencer, virtual nursing expert, innovator, and best-selling author.
In the course of their conversation, Keith and Dr. Clipper discuss the growing intersection of artificial intelligence, nursing, and healthcare. Important aspects of this crucial topic include how nurses can position themselves for a seat at the table of this burgeoning technology that’s no longer the future of healthcare, but a present-day reality.
Dr. Clipper founded Innovation Advantage after more than 20 years as a Chief Nurse Executive when she had the opportunity to commit to innovation during her RWJF Executive Nurse Fellowship and then jumped at the chance to become an ASU/AONL Executive Fellow in Innovative Health Leadership. Her one-of-a-kind skill-set brings decades of operational experience, bundled with her expertise in nursing innovation and experience in academics.
A trailblazer as the first Vice President of Innovation at the American Nurses Association, Bonnie created an innovation strategy to bring over 4 million nurses into the innovation space. She enjoys pushing the limits and relentlessly questions paradigms, which is often on full display in her work as a top healthcare influencer.
As an internationally recognized nurse futurist, she was a co-author on the seminal work, The Innovation Roadmap: A Nurse Leader’s Guide and was the lead author of the International Best-Selling book, The Nurse’s Guide to Innovation. She publishes and blogs regularly on technologies impacting nursing. Dr. Clipper is the sole nurse member of the HIMSS Innovation Board of Advisors and is a start-up coach for MATTER international health tech accelerator. Her unique understanding of operations, strategy, workforce, and technology make her the perfect bridge-builder to create new workflows and processes to ensure that technology improves care and experiences for everyone.
