The Center for Creative Leadership (CCL)® is partnering with Johnson & Johnson to launch the new Johnson & Johnson Nurse Innovation Fellowship this fall. This unique 2-year program aims to strengthen the leadership and entrepreneurial skills of nurses to amplify and integrate nurse-led innovation in health and healthcare.
CCL is one of 2 partners chosen by Johnson & Johnson to develop and evolve the Fellowship, which targets nurses who are committed to transforming health and healthcare. Chosen for its broad experience delivering executive education, including through the national Robert Wood Johnson Executive Nurse Fellows program, CCL will develop the curricula for the Johnson & Johnson Fellowship. Nurse Approved, a Boston-based organization that educates and provides opportunities for nurses to launch innovation ideas, will partner in selecting the cohort for the program and in contributing to the curricula.
“CCL has a special focus on developing leaders in the health and healthcare field, so it is a tremendous privilege to partner with Johnson & Johnson on this groundbreaking initiative,” says CCL President and CEO John R. Ryan. “We look forward to this journey and its great potential for driving innovation in the field of nursing.”
Applicants for the Fellowship must be registered nurses with at least 3 years of experience; currently work in health services or organizations related to public health, research or health policy; and reside in the United States or its territories.
The first cohort of Fellows, who’ll begin the program this fall, will consist of 12 nurses.
During the 2 years, the Fellows will complete self-assessments, complete an innovation project, receive leadership and entrepreneurial training, as well as individualized coaching and mentoring.
