Innovation Evangelist Bonnie Clipper’s Mission to Help Nurse Ideas Succeed

Ahead of the Year of the Nurse in 2020, we sat down with nurse innovation expert, best-selling author and public speaker Bonnie Clipper, DNP, MA, MBA, RN, CENP, FACHE, to hear what she’s most excited about for the future of nursing and learn about her new book, “The Nurse’s Guide to Innovation.”

Convener. Collaborator. Connector. Nurses can play a unique role in innovation, and no one believes that more than Dr. Bonnie Clipper. After an impactful career as a nurse for more than 30 years, including 20 as a nurse executive, Bonnie had the opportunity to leverage her insights and passion for innovation as the first Vice President of Innovation for the American Nurses Association (ANA), where she led the development of the innovation framework to include the millions of registered nurses nationally to help them advance their ideas and innovations.

Now working as Chief Clinical Officer at Wambi and a health innovation mentor at MATTER, Bonnie is leveraging her experience as a nurse and her understanding of innovation to influence the design and development of healthcare solutions. Her recent experiences speaking globally about the power of nurse-led innovation influenced her to publish her new book, “The Nurse's Guide to Innovation: Accelerating the Journey,” a guide for nurses interested in developing, patenting, funding and marketing their great ideas to improve healthcare.

The Johnson & Johnson Notes on Nursing team recently spoke with Bonnie to learn more about her book and hear how she believes nurses can seize opportunities in leadership and innovation as we head into the Year of the Nurse.
