At Johnson & Johnson, we’re committed to advocating for and empowering nurses globally as critical drivers of better health outcomes.
Johnson & Johnson Nursing Today
Together with our partners, Johnson & Johnson is proud to shine a spotlight on nurses and their impact, and directly empower their work, because we believe they have always been catalysts to transforming human health.
We invested in creative advertising that broadens public awareness and celebrates nurse innovation throughout history.
We host the Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge series, inviting nurses worldwide to develop and share their ideas with the potential to change human health. The nurse innovators with the best ideas will receive up to $100,000 in grant funding and access to mentoring and coaching from experts across the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies to help bring their ideas to life.
We developed this site, a premier online destination for nurses and prospective nurses.
We regularly publish Johnson & Johnson “Notes on Nursing,” an e-digest of nurse-led innovation stories and industry news.
Our Commitment to Advocating for and Empowering Nurses
In 2002, a crisis loomed—by 2020, a projected shortage of 500,000 nurses in the US. Johnson & Johnson launched the Campaign for Nursing’s Future to champion the profession to inspire more people to pursue and maintain their careers in nursing. With scholarships, partnerships, media and online resources, we helped turn things around. The nursing workforce has grown by over a million, with projected growth of another million by 2030*. Nursing is now one of the fastest growing professions in the country and Johnson & Johnson is proud to be widely recognized as an advocate for the nursing profession.

To strengthen resiliency among healthcare professionals, we provide resources from Johnson & Johnson Health and Wellness Solutions, J&J Human Performance Institute, and the Janssen Strategic Customer Group; together, they provide technology solutions, workshops, consultations, and appearances at events like the American Organization for Nursing Leadership Annual Meeting.
To champion nurse-led innovation, we launched the Johnson & Johnson Nurse Innovation Platform, which is comprised of three programs that work together to advance nurse-led innovation, focusing on skills building trainings, leadership development and innovation development for nurses at every stage of their careers.
