Badger Nurses Change Lives
The pressures of the pandemic, which made nurses more visible than ever, are expected to make burnout worse. Nurses in the field and scholars in the School of Nursing are pushing for policy reforms, researching the root causes and effects of the critical issues facing the profession, and implementing new evidence-based tools to improve working conditions and patient outcomes.
To improve health outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, nurses must challenge their own biases and advocate for their patients, as individuals and as a community.
As trained advocates, nurses help bridge the gap in the quality of health care people receive by assessing and addressing various social determinants of health, such as a patient’s environment or their access to proper resources. For the Black community, systemic racism is one such determinant.
