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.
The School of Nursing has added two new online specialty tracks to the Doctor of Nursing Practice program. In addition to five existing specialties, these advanced nursing practice DNP tracks in either Population Health or Systems Leadership and Innovation create options for nurses to advance their careers.
A partnership between the Monroe Clinic-SSM Health and the UW–Madison School of Nursing provides DNP students opportunities to engage in rural practice, and many return to it.
We know nurses are the largest segment of the healthcare workforce. So why don’t we see them in the news?
