Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge in Maternal and Newborn Health
About the Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge in Maternal and Newborn Health
Together with the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), the Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge in Maternal and Newborn Health was launched in 2019.
Nurses around the world were invited to submit innovative ideas aimed at improving maternal & newborn care – including but not limited to neonatal care, obstetrics, and women’s health.
The nurse innovators with the best idea(s) received up to $100,000 in grant funding, mentoring from experts across the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies, and access to the Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS ecosystem to help bring their ideas to life.

Nurses understand patient needs better than anyone else, so I believe anytime a healthcare product or solution is being developed, a nurse should be involved."
I would also say approach your solution from a place of caring. Nurses are great at putting patients at the center, and I think that is a great starting point to drive innovation."
