Transforming Teaching, Practice, and Systems of Care
At the UW–Madison School of Nursing, we encourage nurses to act on their passion and experience to explore scholarly inquiry. Our clinical scholars innovate teaching, share advancements in evidence-based practice, and improve systems of care.
Clinical scholarship informs the policies that impact safety, well-being, and quality of work life for health care workforces. It also protects the health of patients and communities.
We collaborate with communities, care settings, patients, and families to understand and work toward improving health care needs. Through innovative, evidence-based approaches, we transform nursing practice, patient outcomes, health systems, and our communities.
The Wisconsin Idea
Guided by the Wisconsin Idea and through partnerships across the state, the nation, and the globe, our scholarship is relevant and responsive to real-world problems.
Reducing Health Disparities
The School of Nursing is committed to addressing the inequities that are rooted in systems and determinants of population health. Unless unjust systems are challenged and dismantled, they perpetuate the institutionalized forms of discrimination that have led to health disparities. We work to transform systems of care so they are just, and strive to deliver more equitable care for all.
