Funding Agency:
Johnson & Johnson

Overview

Nurses have always been critical partners on the frontlines of care, and the backbone of our healthcare system. The COVID-19 pandemic has raised new challenges for nurses and health workers and brought into focus the obstacles that they face around the world, every day.

The power of nurse-led innovation and know-how may be more critical than ever when developing potential solutions amid a global crisis. With extensive patient experience, nurses’ ideas have the potential to profoundly improve human health.

In connection with our overall commitment to supporting frontline healthcare workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Johnson & Johnson is proud  to continue the Nurses Innovate QuickFire Challenges series with a new challenge inspired by the NurseHack4Health: COVID-19 Virtual Hackathon where over 500 nurses, healthcare professionals, and tech enthusiasts convened virtually to help ideate potential solutions for COVID-19 health challenges. This QuickFire Challenge is open to all nurse innovators, and aims to help nurture early-stage ideas from the frontlines of COVID-19 by celebrating, supporting, & mentoring the nurse innovators behind them.

Nurses from around the world are invited to submit ideas aiming to improve COVID-19 patient care.

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.
