The University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Nursing
Pioneering efforts by nursing leaders in health systems innovation include Florence Nightingale’s redesign of battlefield hospital care for the British Army during the Crimean War and Florence Blake’s groundbreaking efforts in the 1960s to revolutionize the care of hospitalized children. The tradition continues today as nurse researchers develop, test, and implement new systems of care that improve clinical outcomes, control costs, and reduce the burden of care for individuals, families, and communities.
The University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Nursing is seeking a national leader whose program of research has led to health systems innovations that have demonstrated significant and sustained improvements in clinical as well as operational outcomes and that have leveraged the power of nursing solutions in addressing important health care challenges.
