In today’s modern world, technology and innovation are essential to furthering the nursing profession. As the founder and CEO of NurseGrid, Joe Novello, BSN, RN, is using his nursing skills to help improve the nursing profession and advance outcomes for patients.

NurseGrid was created by nurses, for nurses and nurse leaders, in order to streamline communication, staffing, and scheduling in nursing departments. The app, which was created in 2013 and is now used in hospitals across the country, serves as a calendar and communication tool for nurses to manage their schedules, and a platform for managers to oversee scheduling, ultimately increasing the productivity of both nurses and managers.

We recently spoke to Joe about what led to the development of NurseGrid and the importance of nurse entrepreneurship.

  • Building well-being and leadership skills in nursing isn’t a new concept, but surprisingly, it hasn’t traditionally been a formal component of nursing education. As a result, many nurses enter the profession unprepared for what’s ahead. Beginning this winter, a new educational curriculum from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing will pilot a competency-based approach to developing the next generation of nurses at 10 nursing colleges nationwide, focused on empowering students with the skills needed to prioritize self-care, healthy behaviors and well-being in the healthcare work environment.
