Calling for Nurse Innovators
As innovators on the frontlines of health care, nurses have the power to profoundly change lives. The COVID-19 crisis has further amplified this truth, bringing new meaning to the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife.
The power of nurse-led innovation and knowledge is more critical than ever when developing potential solutions amid a global pandemic. With extensive patient experience, nurses’ ideas have the potential to profoundly improve human health.
We are proud to partner with Johnson & Johnson and the Society of Nurse Scientists, Innovators, Entrepreneurs, & Leaders (SONSIEL) for the Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge in COVID-19 Patient Care. As part of our mission to shape health care through innovative and expert nursing leadership, the QuickFire Challenge will nurture early-stage ideas from the frontlines of COVID-19 by celebrating, supporting, & mentoring the nurse innovators behind them.
Access to Grant Funding & Mentoring
The nurse innovators with the best idea(s) will receive up to $100,000 in grant funding, mentoring from experts across the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies, and access to the Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS ecosystem to help bring their ideas to life.
We are looking for nurse-led ideas from nurses and nursing students around the world focused on improving COVID-19 patient care, with specific interest in, for example: facilitating remote patient monitoring and communications, data and reporting, resiliency and self-care, supporting a safe return to work or school, supporting sharing of best practices, and addressing racial disparities and inequities in health care.
