Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge in Oncology Care
About the Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge in Oncology Care
Together with the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS), the Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge in Oncology Care launched in 2019.
Nurses from around the world were invited to submit innovative ideas aimed at improving oncology care – including but not limited to prevention, early detection, treatment, and care for cancer survivors.
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.

I would tell nurses to put their passion for patients at the center of why they should pursue their innovative idea and don’t be afraid to fail forward."
I would tell nurses with ideas of their own to keep going. Don’t give up. If you are feeling lost, find a good team."
