Senior Vice President, Chief Nurse Executive

Rudy Jackson came to UW Health in August 2020 and brought with him a fresh perspective on nursing leadership. This resulted in the expansion of UW Health’s executive nursing leadership structure to include a total of four Chief Nursing Officers to improve access and support to direct care RNs in all practice settings. In addition, Rudy fully embraces a transparent nursing shared governance structure to ensure that RNs are partnering with leaders in shared decision-making to help further shape and improve professional nursing practice and patient care at UW Health
