Badger Nurses Change Lives
Nurses are uniquely positioned to improve population health by using their training, knowledge, and theories to educate people on the important connection between person and place.
When pandemics hit, nurses are at the forefront. With expertise in epidemiology and public health, they also improve care, give people tools to protect themselves, and help policymakers understand why some can’t always take those steps.
