To understand, nurture and share nurse innovation
Share your ideas for innovations in patient care

The MakerNurse initiative, led by MIT’s Little Devices Lab with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, was launched in September 2013 with the goal of honoring the inventive spirit of nurses across America and bringing nurse making to the forefront of health care. By examining nurse innovation in U.S. hospitals, we hope to uncover the behaviors, circumstances and technological drivers that enhance resourcefulness and innovation among hospital nurses, and identify tools and resources that could help more nurses bring their ideas to fruition and lead improvements in patient care. We have partnered with five health systems to learn more about MakerNurses in their hospitals and have received stories from dozens of nurses who have completed the MakerNurse survey. Share your story and sign up for updates.
