(Twin Cities Business) The University of Minnesota Nursing School is furthering its entrepreneurial direction by teaming up with a digital health business incubator to commercialize its prototype smartphone app for expectant parents of babies with heart defects. The deal will seek to commercialize the Preparing Heart and Mind educational app for parents of babies with heart defects.

Led by Dean Connie Delaney, the nursing school has in recent years been working on ways to translate and commercialize nurses’ knowledge of the marketplace and experiences into new innovations.
