Innovative Partnership Working to Address Nursing Shortage
13 Oct 2022
GREEN BAY – As a nurse, Nichole Lauf’s experience and empathy have guided countless patients through their most vulnerable moments.
As a co-clinical nursing instructor for Aurora BayCare Medical Center, she is motivated by the opportunity to teach technical skills and help cultivate a strong sense of compassion in the next generation of nurses. A new Workforce Innovation Grant awarded by the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development and Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. (WEDC) to partners including UW-Green Bay, Aurora BayCare Medical Center, and HSHS St. Vincent will expand the pool of nursing instructors able to teach both “hard” and “soft” skills.
