Respiratory pathogens are everywhere. While they cannot be seen, they can massively impact individuals and communities. How can we better protect ourselves against these invisible threats? The solution may be an “invisible shield.”
Around the world, nurses are innovating to ensure the best possible care for patients. To “nurse someone back to health” is an iconic saying grounded in nurses’ charge to change the trajectory of patient outcomes by compassionately caring for the sick, identifying smarter and better ways to heal, and developing new potentially life-saving methods. For over 120 years, Johnson & Johnson has supported the nursing profession because we believe nurses are uniquely positioned to change the global trajectory of health for humanity. Nurses are our critical partners on the front lines of care and are the backbone of healthcare systems globally. Nurses are leaders, innovators, and compassionate caregivers, requiring resiliency and resourcefulness to navigate the intricacies of health. We are proud to support and elevate the visibility and impact of nursing by championing nurse-led innovation, supporting skills development, developing nurse leaders and strengthening nurse resiliency. We are committed to advocating for, and empowering nurses globally as critical drivers of better health outcomes.
