    • Health & Fitness

Seeing the need to keep homeless shelters, their guests and staff safe and coronavirus free, Nurse Disrupted—a pandemic response start-up in Madison, WI—was launched in record time to build fast, simple, virtual health screenings for homeless shelters and communities. On this episode, we meet nurses Bre Loughlin, MS, RN, and Tracy Zvenyach, PhD, APRN-NP, co-founders of Nurse Disrupted, and dig into the details of launching their new venture. We learn how their different, yet complementary backgrounds of technology and policy are a strength of their partnership, and how in solving one problem, they simultaneously solve several more, including helping nursing students fulfill their practicum hours toward graduation and gain digital health tech skills; helping shelter residents improve access to and quality of health care; conserving personal protective equipment; and gathering vital public health data to shape health and social services policy and access government funding.
