Diversity in the nursing field is essential because it provides opportunities to administer quality care to patients. If nurses understand their patient's culture, environment, food, customs, religious views, etc., they can provide them with ultimate care.

The goal of the Diversity Nursing Scholars Initiatives Program is to increase the academic success, retention, and educational attainment of diverse students enrolled in the baccalaureate nursing program.

Funded by a federal Nursing Workforce Diversity grant, this program focuses on increasing the pipeline of nurses entering the healthcare workforce and ensuring these nurses more closely reflect the diversity of the populations they serve.
