The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced it is accepting applications for the new Innovation Advisors Program
that seeks “to support and expand the number of health care leaders with the knowledge and vision to find innovative ways to improve care for patients and use our healthcare dollars more wisely.” Up to 200 Innovation Advisors will be chosen
by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. Nurses are eligible to apply
. The first group of Innovation Advisors will start their six-month intensive orientation and applied research period in December 2011. The Advisors are expected to commit up to 10 hours per week during an initial six-month period. Each participating Advisor’s home organization will receive a stipend in conjunction with their participation. If you apply for the program please contact ANA
in order for the association to provide assistance and support.
More information is available on the CMS website or review the fact sheet.
