Do you have a story to share about how you're changing the world through innovation? Drop us a line, tell us more, and help us continue to share the powerful impact of nursing innovation that is changing patient outcomes!

Instigating positive change for patients throughout the world is part of what makes nurses a driving force in healthcare, and for Genevieve Handy, MSN, CPNP, being a catalyst for positive change has become a driving purpose in life. At the National Student Nurses’ Association (NSNA) 66th Annual Convention plenary session presented by Johnson & Johnson earlier this month, Genevieve shared her story with thousands of student nurses in attendance and explained why nurses should be recognized as change makers—not just care takers.

When Jana Lauderdale, PhD, RN, FAAN, took the stage at the National Student Nurses’ Association (NSNA) 66th Annual Convention plenary session presented by Johnson & Johnson, she introduced herself in a unique way: “I’m a Comanche Indian and I’m a nurse.” These descriptions shape Jana’s personal identity, but they also shape how she approaches and analyzes the world around her.

As a senior student in the nursing program at Emporia State University in Emporia, Kan., Ruben Rodriguez-Negrete, Jr., president of the Emporia Men’s Assembly of Nurses (EMAN), hopes to inspire future nurses and fuel positive conversation around men in the nursing profession.
