National Nurses Week (May 6-12) is right around the corner, and in celebration of the nursing profession, the Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing’s Future is collecting nurse stories from patients across the U.S. and beyond. Help us share the powerful stories which exist after a nurse has had an effect on your life or those your care about!

Perhaps a nurse helped you through a difficult diagnosis? Was a nurse there to offer you advice during a specific hospital visit? Did you witness firsthand a parent, sibling or spouse pursue the nursing profession? Any and all stories are welcome! And if you know someone who may have a good story, please feel free to spread the news!

How to Submit Your Story:

  • Please send a brief summary of your story (2-3 sentences long) via Facebook message 
  • Please include your name, geographic location, and details of the effect a nurse had on you and any corresponding photos that help bring the story to life
  • If you submit a photo and your story is ultimately utilized, we will ask you to complete a consent form acknowledging the Campaign’s right to use your image
  • Stories collected and selected may be featured on the Campaign’s FacebookTwitter and Pinterest pages, the Campaign’s website – DiscoverNursing.com

 
Please consider sharing a story – and helping recognize the positive effect nurses have on people's lives.

  • 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.
