We want to wish each of our readers a happy and safe holiday season! Additionally, we want to thank all of the nurses and professional organizations that contributed to Nursing Notes this year. Thanks to your continued support and engagement, our readership has grown to nearly 65,000 subscribers, and we are excited for what the next year has to bring!
In keeping with the giving season, we’re pleased to announce that Johnson & Johnson has launched its Care Grows holiday giving campaign. Care Grows unites individuals and Johnson & Johnson in supporting initiatives that touch the lives of children and families around the world. The campaign leverages three social good platforms: Catapult, the Johnson & Johnson Donate a Photo app and Save the Children’s “Gift of Joy” catalog.
Through these different platforms, Johnson & Johnson will amplify individual acts of caring by either matching a donation dollar-for-dollar through Catapult and the Gifts of Joy catalog, or by donating a dollar for every photo donated through Donate a Photo. The campaign will extend through the end of the year. Help spread the word by using #CareGrows on Twitter and Facebook!

The Promise of Nursing for South Carolina Gala Recap
As part of our ongoing commitment to help alleviate the nursing shortage, the Campaign hosted its Promise of Nursing (PON) for South Carolina gala in Charleston on November 6. This was the second such regional event to be held in the state of South Carolina, for a total of $430,000 raised from PON for South Carolina events!
Two hundred nurses from across the state attended the event to celebrate the industry and help raise funds to support the region’s nursing community. Funds raised from the gala will be used for undergraduate nursing scholarships, fellowships to prepare nurse faculty and grants to South Carolina nursing schools to help expand their program capacity. One hundred percent of the event’s proceeds will remain in the state of South Carolina.
