Our Commitment to Nursing
Johnson & Johnson to advocating for, elevating, and empowering nurses as innovative leaders who improve patient outcomes and strengthen health systems, to change the trajectory of human health.
During 2020, the Year of the Nurse, we are proud to continue our 120-year commitment to the nursing profession by championing nurse-led innovation in healthcare, supporting clinical skills and leadership development and advocating for and with nurses for the betterment of the profession.
We believe nurses change lives, and that changes everything.
Nurses of color have long-shaped the nursing profession and transformed healthcare, but their stories are underrepresented in the broader nursing narrative. A new nurse-led project, “Nurses You Should Know,” is using storytelling to help close the representation gap by amplifying their contributions.2021-02-22T17:07:22.288Z
In the early stages of COVID-19 when PPE was scarce, University Health CNE Tommye Austin sprang into action to protect her front line colleagues—creating a mask with surgical draping and filters. Almost a year later, Tommye’s innovation success is helping to inspire nurse innovation at her health system and beyond.2021-02-21T20:06:28.605Z
