Throughout history, nurses have played an outsized role in interacting with patients, with critical roles in prevention, education, treatment, and recovery. Supporting nurses has been at the heart of our work at Johnson & Johnson since 1897, from employment to platforms, partnerships, training, and scholarships. Today, we work to change the trajectory of human health and firmly believe that nurses – 3.2 million strong in the United States – are the backbone of our healthcare system.
