Diversity & Inclusion Resources for Students

As the largest portion of the global health care workforce who are often the only point of care for vulnerable communities, it is imperative that nurses be socially and culturally conscious, empathetic, and person-centered. We will continue to strive to improve diversity in our school and the profession by supporting our students and diversity and inclusion initatives in our school and university.
