Message from Lynda Benton, Senior Director, Corporate Equity, Johnson & Johnson
Nurses are innovators, lifesavers and fierce patient advocates. Where would the world be without them?
It’s a simple yet powerful question, and one that aligns to why Johnson & Johnson has proudly championed and supported the nursing profession for 125 years.
The work of nurses is critical in the nation’s ability to provide safe, quality, and equitable patient outcomes, and without enough nurses, the foundation of our health system is at risk. Today, the nursing profession is in crisis with accelerated, alarming levels of burnout, turnover, and vacancy rates. A healthcare system without enough nurses is a healthcare crisis for us all.
Our commitment is to recognize, celebrate, support, and acknowledge the irreplaceable value and impact that nurses bring to healthcare, every day. And through advocacy, scholarships, clinical and leadership education, mental health resources, and more, Johnson & Johnson has proudly supported the nursing profession for more than a century and continues to do so today.
We’re excited to share with you a new media campaign launching this December in celebration of the nursing profession and their impact on healthcare. We invite you to join us and help share these assets!
Starting December 1, view and share these new :30 and :15 nursing videos and GIF on your social channels, and watch the Heroes Among Us segments on the TODAY show, sponsored by Johnson & Johnson, featuring inspiring nurse innovators helping to improve patient care. A new segment is coming soon.
As this year ends, I also invite you to check out these programs in support of nurses:
