RWJF Project to Examine, Enable Nurse Innovation

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has announced an upcoming project with Boston-based Little Devices Lab at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology that will collect accounts of nurse innovation to determine how to best capture nurse creative potential in a care setting.

The project, called MakerNurse, will collect stories from self-identified "maker nurses," nurses with accounts of innovative changes they have supported or pioneered, from across the U.S. with the goal of understanding behaviors, cultures and circumstances driving nurse innovation.

MakerNurse focuses on nurse innovation because the role of nurses on the frontline of care makes them ideal drivers of change in healthcare delivery, according to a news release.

After six months of story collection, the project hopes to share the reported circumstances under which nurse innovation is most possible, according to the project's website.
