MakerNurse at the First White House Maker Faire

whmakerfaireEach day, 3.1 million Registered Nurses around the country are making creative solutions to improve the lives of patients, caregivers and even their own coworkers. At MakerNurse, we celebrate these examples of Making Health and aim to create the tools, resources and networks to truly support these nurses’ ingenuity. Today, MakerNurse Roxana Reyna, RN of Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi, TX is participating as an Honored Maker at the nations first White House Maker Faire for her creative efforts in woundcare for pediatric patients:

In addition to Roxana’s participation, at today’s White House Maker Faire, we announced the launch of a new online community that will elevate and accelerate the ingenuity of nurses working across the United States. Additionally, MakerNurse will release a series of robust tools and resources to empower nurses to make and innovate at the bedside, improving patient care and health. The tools will launch in July through the MakerNurse Create Beta Program. Register today to be part of the initial release of these tools and resources.

We are thrilled for Roxana, Driscoll Children’s Hospital and the nationwide community of MakerNurses. Let’s continue to support our nurses as they make to improve the healthcare across the country!
