Thank You from J&J Nursing!
As 2018 comes to an end, the Johnson & Johnson Nursing team is excited about the journey begun this year in showcasing nurses as critical partners on the front lines of care and championing nurses as crucial thought-leaders in developing future products, policies, and protocols – as champions of innovation. Every day, nurses are changing human health.
Reflecting on the past year, Johnson & Johnson Nursing launched a new strategic direction and strengthened our commitment to showcasing the many critical innovations of nurses past and present. Nurses have a unique and accomplished history of identifying problems in patient care and bringing pointed solutions to life. To help demonstrate our support and recognition of this vital role that nurses play, we released new nursing television commercials in September and brought you a redesigned website. We also announced the Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge in October to give nurses the opportunity to bring their innovative ideas to life – you can continue to enter the challenge here until February 2, 2019.
Additionally, we shared inspiring and empowering stories of nurses and nursing programs committed to improving health outcomes for patients and their communities. Nurse innovators like Rebecca Koszalinski, Roxana Reyna, Tricia Cady, Wayne Nix, and more have developed tools specific to their patient populations based on front-line experiences; Adam Schneider, Elizabeth Mikula, and Erin Hoch are among nurses who have improved processes and protocols to sharpen standard care practices. Similarly, Donna Torrisi, Lori Lioce, Paul Hayes, and other nurses have embraced diversity and inclusion and created programs to provide underserved communities with the most comprehensive care possible, as well as provide nursing students with the most thorough education possible. These nurses are truly transforming health outcomes for patients – but they’re not the only ones.
Thank you for your continued commitment to transforming health outcomes for your patients and in your communities. Nurses’ innovative nature and combined experiences on the frontlines of care have positively impacted healthcare for generations, and we are excited to continue to demonstrate our support for the nursing community in 2019! Nurses change lives. And that changes everything.
