Get involved with the growing MakerNurse Community
Host a workshop: Help nursing staff and students learn to identify and make solutions for improving patient care and introduce them to materials and tools to build D-I-Y (Do-It-Yourself) medical devices and technologies.
Invest in a MakerHealth Program for your hospital: Bring machines, tools, and materials that will allow your nurses to convert their ideas into prototypes. There are various levels of MakerHealth Spaces, ranging from a mobile cart to a static workspace with laser cutters, 3D printers and more. The MakerHealth Programs include physical prototyping resources and a MakerHealth Operating System (SM) with training curriculum, integration into hospital operations and a web-platform for metrics and sharing prototypes among staff.
Share your MakerNurse story: Share your story of making in healthcare, whether you have made a device that is part of a research study, a solution using hospital or homecare materials that is already helping patients or a commercialized product, we want to hear from you! We'll feature select stories on the website through the "Made by a MakerNurse" blog series. Email us at hello [at] makernurse [dot] org
