Nurses Leading Innovation
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. 

Since 2007, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and the Johnson & Johnson Campaign for Nursing have partnered to sponsor the Johnson & Johnson/AACN Minority Nurse Faculty Scholars program. The program – which is currently accepting applications – aims to address faculty shortages in nursing schools and simultaneously expand the number and increase diversity among the nurse faculty population available to teach an increasingly diverse student body. 

Providing respectful and competent care is a cornerstone of exceptional nursing. However, a patient’s perception of healthcare and healthcare providers’ abilities to provide comprehensive care can be impacted (positively or negatively) by a healthcare provider’s ability to take a patient’s own background and experiences into account. One organization working to help increase the comfort level in Alaska Native (AN) and American Indian (AI) people seeking healthcare is the Recruitment and Retention of Alaska Natives into Nursing (RRANN) program through the University of Alaska Anchorage in Anchorage, Alaska.
