The Modern Nurse
February 27, 2018

In today’s modern world, technology and innovation are essential to furthering the nursing profession. As the founder and CEO of NurseGrid, Joe Novello, BSN, RN, is using his nursing skills to help improve the nursing profession and advance outcomes for patients. NurseGrid was created by nurses, for nurses and nurse leaders, in order to streamline communication, staffing, and scheduling in nursing departments. The app, which was created in 2013 and is now used in hospitals across the country, serves as a calendar and communication tool for nurses to manage their schedules, and a platform for managers to oversee scheduling, ultimately increasing the productivity of both nurses and managers. We recently spoke to Joe about what led to the development of NurseGrid and the importance of nurse entrepreneurship.
