New research to define the future of the nursing profession
While our healthcare system has been ripe for change, the pandemic exposed areas of opportunity and opened a door to new thinking that we need to examine and continue to push forward.
We have partnered with leading nurse organizations to carry out this examination, understand the factors that optimized nurses’ impact on improving human health, and chart a path forward to enable this momentum far into the future, so that the nursing profession is well prepared to lead and help meet the evolving needs of our healthcare system.
Who is involved and what are we doing?
Johnson & Johnson, American Nurses Association (ANA) and the American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL) partnered to conduct quantitative and qualitative research to evaluate the impacts of the pandemic on the nursing profession.
What will this achieve?
This research will allow us to define a progressive path forward for nursing, ultimately strengthening care delivery and elevating the role of nurses as change agents and innovative, transformative healthcare leaders.
What have we found?
Informed by national quantitative research in 2020, we conducted a range of qualitative interviews with renowned nurse leaders that reveal a set of critical learnings from the pandemic as well as next steps and promising practices that will be essential in delivering the full potential of the nursing profession for healthcare—now and in the future. The findings are delivered through an executive summary and three deep chapters of focused exploration.
