Badger Nurses Collaborating on Covid-19 Vaccine Education and Delivery (BN-CoVED), supported the UW–Madison School of Nursing as it collaborated with community partners and nursing schools at UW–Eau Claire, UW–Green Bay, UW–Oshkosh and UW–Stevens Point to vaccinate the public against COVID-19.
Student and faculty volunteers participated in clinics at locations such as University Health Services, UnityPoint Meriter, Sauk County, Walworth County, and The Ho-Chunk Nation Vaccination efforts in Baraboo.
The BN-CoVED grant supported the coordination, education and deployment of nursing students, faculty, staff and alumni volunteers to provide clinic support and vaccine administration, as well as educational programs on preventing spread and making safe choices during the ongoing pandemic.
Badger Nurses & COVID-19
The Wisconsin Partnership Program has awarded a COVID-19 Response Grant to the UW–Madison School of Nursing to help support vaccination efforts in Wisconsin.
UW–Madison School of Nursing students are giving the COVID-19 vaccine to teachers and other qualifying populations around the southern part of the state, to help with the massive task of vaccinating against the new virus that caused a global pandemic.
Chancellor Rebecca Blank, UW System interim President Tommy Thompson and Board of Regents President Andrew S. Petersen toured the vaccine clinic at the Nicholas Recreation Center on Tuesday, March 23, where School of Nursing faculty and students helped administer vaccines.

“The person who had given me my shot was an undergraduate nursing student at UW–Madison. She was competent and caring. More important, she was donating her time to address the largest, deadliest public health challenge facing Wisconsin and the nation in a hundred years. She was contributing her energy and expertise to a vital national effort to protect the health and lives of her fellow citizens.”Kevin Reilly, former president, University of Wisconsin System
