Bre Loughlin

I've been in nursing over 20 years. Starting at the bedside in kidney and liver transplant and evolving to a nurse exec at one of the biggest healthcare software companies in the world. I started Nurse Disrupted in 2020 because no one was designing with nurse workflows at the center of their software. Virtual Nursing had to emerge, but solutions were over-engineered, and physician focused. So, it was up to me to assemble some of the greatest talent to make something truly transformational.

The people I work with often say, "you can tell this was created by a nurse." That's right...

Our Story

Bre Starts Nurse Disrupted

At the start of the pandemic in 2020, founder Bre Loughlin, RN, and team sought to provide video COVID screenings to homeless shelters in Madison, Wisconsin. The program garnered national attention with features by the Today Show, Becker's, and US News and World Report, among others. The impact was significant: in its first 22 months, the program prevented over 1,150 ED visits and saved $2.3M in healthcare costs. We've now conducted more than 42,500 video encounters across over 500 providers.

Now, we're using our experience to tackle another critical issue in healthcare, the nurse staffing crisis. Our Virtual Nursing platform improves ROI, increases nurse satisfaction, and delivers quality care to patients in acute settings. We know what it takes to get results in impossible circumstances. So let's do this!
