New J&J Nursing Website Designed to Optimize Nurses’ Professional Paths

At Johnson & Johnson, we believe that nurses are the backbone of our healthcare system, and our critical partners on the front lines of care. Nurse-led innovation has resulted in important healthcare advancements throughout history – and Johnson & Johnson is committed to helping nurses continue addressing patient needs through resources and opportunities like the J&J Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge.

That's why we've launched a new nursing website, where current and future nurses can learn more about a variety of nursing specialties directly from other nurses, find resources on different nursing degrees, identify opportunities for continued growth throughout a nursing career, and read a dynamic collection of nursing stories that elevate the power of innovation, diversity, and mentorship in the profession. This new website uniquely provides a one-stop shop for nurses to find resources to help inform and inspire their careers in healthcare.

In addition to bi-monthly Johnson & Johnson Notes on Nursing content, provides a variety of features aimed at helping individuals invested in the nursing profession find inspiration and guidance as they plan their careers. Featured sections include a “Get Inspired” area, which highlights advice from experienced nurses – like Victoria, a medical-surgical telemetry nurse, or Thomas, a nurse anesthetist – in different fields and details what typical work shifts look like in each specialty; a “Why Specialize” tab that provides more information on specialization options and steps required for each, as well as a quiz to determine which specialty is right for you; and finally, a heat map identifying job opportunities in different states, and average wage ranges for registered nurses throughout the country.

Because each nursing career is unique, the Johnson & Johnson Nursing website experience can be highly personalized, allowing users to create a login and save favorite resources and information for later use. Many featured sections create a personalized experience and customized path based on user input, whether their focus is finding a new specialty, learning more about financial aid, exploring continuing education, or learning the first steps to take to become a nurse.

As part of the evolved direction for our Johnson & Johnson Nursing advocacy strategy, the new nursing website is connected to the Johnson & Johnson “To Change Health Together” website, which is dedicated to fulfilling our commitment to changing human health, and gives people a way to join us on that journey. Through key features – such as Donate A Photo, CaringCrowd®, and Wisdom by Kids – the website works to raise awareness of and provide aid to communities and causes around the world.

Supporting nurses has been at the heart of Johnson & Johnson dating back to 1897, from employment to platforms, partnerships, training, and scholarships. Through a new and improved website experience aimed at providing the latest resources to educate and encourage nurses everywhere, Johnson & Johnson continues to work toward empowering and enhancing the image of nurses as critical drivers of better health outcomes.

We’re excited to continue sharing inspirational stories from nurses like you! Submit your nursing story to be featured on the “Get Inspired” section of the new nursing site here.

While on the website, learn more details about how to submit an idea to our Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge, open to the more than 3.2 million nurses located throughout the U.S. The Challenge, which runs through February 1, 2019, invites nurses for a chance to receive up to $100,000 in grants and access to mentoring and coaching via Johnson & Johnson Innovation, JLABS, to bring their innovations to life.

Latest from Johnson & Johnson Nursing
  • For nurses, more flexibility and better work/life balance are essential. Solutions like Mercy Works on Demand are meeting nurses where they are by offering a gig-based approach to scheduling. Not only is Mercy’s innovative approach addressing shortages and improving patient care, it is also bringing joy back to nursing and demonstrating that a new, flexible future is possible for the profession.
  • 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.
  • Johnson & Johnson is proud to have supported nurse innovators and entrepreneurs through the Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge Awards, which has provided grant funding for nurse-founded healthcare solutions and approaches. But the innovation journey doesn’t stop there. Here, three inspiring QuickFire Challenge awardees share what they’ve been up to since receiving their award, how their solutions have grown and expanded, and their advice for other nurses inspired to solve for healthcare’s biggest challenges.
