Johnson & Johnson, American Nurses Association (ANA) and the American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL) partnered to conduct quantitative and qualitative research to evaluate the impacts of the pandemic on the nursing profession. Get the research findings here.

While the recent pandemic caused devastating loss of life and strained health systems, it also brought into sharp focus nurses’ pivotal role in healthcare and their enormous, and largely untapped potential to shape patient care, rethink how healthcare is organized, and where it’s delivered.

Moved by the unprecedented stress and strain on nurses and our health systems, Johnson & Johnson, in partnership with the American Nurses Association and the American Organization for Nursing Leadership, set out to understand the various ways that the nursing profession evolved amidst the pandemic. From the stories and data emerged the pointed Accelerating Nursing, Transforming Healthcare report -- one that offers a deeper understanding on how the pandemic transformed nursing practice and how the momentum of these innovations can steer us to a much better and preferred future of the profession.

In this first of a multi episode series, we center on the Accelerating Nursing, Transforming Healthcare Reportand how it coincides with the National Academy of Medicine’s Future of Nursing Reports, and The Future Today Institute’s Tech Trends Report to serve as relevant, actionable playbooks for reducing uncertainty, managing complexity, and building on the momentum of positive change emerging from the COVID pandemic to accelerate nursing and transform healthcare.
