About this Series
At Johnson & Johnson, we believe that a nursing profession that reflects the communities they care for, supports improved, more equitable health care for all. Today, we are working to support greater diversity in nursing through scholarship opportunities, leadership education, mentorship and more. In the new Future of Nursing is Me series, we seek to inspire and drive increased interest in the profession, by elevating and sharing the stories of current, diverse nurses and nursing students. Hear what drew them to nursing, as well as the opportunities and challenges they have faced, and why nursing is a profession with possibilities for all.
