Improving Access to Care
As part of our broader pledge to help support frontline healthcare workers and help provide equitable health solutions for communities of color, the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies is proud to further our 120-year commitment to nurses, including advocating for, elevating and empowering nurses as innovative leaders who strengthen health systems and change human health for the better.
An estimated 20 million nurses and midwives around the world — the equivalent of more than 50% of the healthcare workforce — are the backbone of health systems worldwide, with invaluable hands-on patient experience, resourcefulness and an innate innovative mindset, bringing forward powerful ideas on how to help improve patient outcomes and healthcare. We are proud to help bring these ideas to life.
The COVID-19 pandemic has focused a spotlight on nurses and their impact like never before, where the world is seeing nurses in action as innovative leaders who possess the resiliency and resourcefulness to navigate health emergencies and provide support to patients and fellow frontline health workers alike.
We are proud to continue the Johnson & Johnson Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge series with a seventh Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenge together with the American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) and the Association of Public Health Nurses (APHN). Focused on “Improving Access to Care,” we look to nurses to create potential solutions that aim to improve quality and access to equitable care and ultimately can help prevent, intercept, or treat disease.
We invite nurses and nursing students worldwide to submit their nurse-led novel concepts, protocols, treatment approaches, screening tools, and consumer product ideas with the potential to help improve access to care amid the current pandemic environment and beyond.
The nurse innovators with the best idea(s) will receive up to $100,000 in grant funding and access to mentoring from experts across the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies to help bring their ideas to life.
As innovators on the frontlines of healthcare, nurses have the power to profoundly change lives. Johnson & Johnson has the scale, resources and know-how to help move them forward. Put these two together, and that changes everything.
