Badger Nurses make an impact
The opioid epidemic continues to claim lives, disrupt families and challenge communities, but nurses are hardly standing idly by. In many settings, they are creating solutions, implementing new programs, and driving change for nurses, patients, health systems and communities.
A winter immersion program for the School of Nursing’s Accelerated Bachelor of Nursing (ABSN) program shows students how nurses help build healthy communities in rural places. The school is committed to every student participating in a clinical focused on population health.
Each year, the Nurses Alumni Organization Awards salute alumni who have made significant contributions to the nursing profession. Award recipients exemplify the school’s legacy of excellence in nursing leadership.
