The University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Nursing is proud to have partnered with American Journal of Public Health to create a special supplement on nursing and public health. 

The open-access supplement, Public Health Nursing After COVID-19: Strengthening, Rebuilding, and Reimagining the Systemcovers nursing and public health, offering insight into the importance of nurses during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the future of nursing. 

Papers engage with nursing and its intersection with climate change, vaccine readiness, community resilience, home visiting. The issue includes papers by UW–Madison School of Nursing faculty Jessica LeClair and PhD alumna Theresa Watts. Additionally, images in this issue highlight a mobile produce market as well as a mural dedicated to the contributions of nurses from diverse backgrounds.

I am proud that we are a part of this effort and able to financially support AJPH to make nursing and public health research, education, and practice more visible,” said UW–Madison School of Nursing Dean Linda Scott.

External funding for this supplement was provided by Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, Baltimore, MD; the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing, Emory University, Atlanta, GA; University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Nursing, Madison, WI; University of California, San Francisco, School of Nursing, San Francisco, CA; University of Minnesota School of Nursing, Minneapolis, MN; and University of Texas–Austin School of Nursing, Austin, TX.
