Start Time: 3:05 PM | End Time: 3:55 PM | Location: Churchill B1 | Category: Breakout | Conference Track: Diversity and Student Support | Presenter: Rebecca Harris-Smith | Intended Audience: Faculty, Academic Affairs | Price: Included
 
Diversity in the workforce is an issue that has been researched and promoted by a variety of healthcare organizations. According to Madeleine Leininger the lack of diversity in the nursing workforce impedes the ability of nurses to provide excellent care for all. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) conducted a systematic investigation of nursing literature to identify evidence focused on African American student's admission, retention, and graduation in nursing and medical education programs. This resulted in a call to increase diversity in medical and nursing education. The National League of Nursing (NLN) and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) subsequently supported the development of programs to address the lack of diversity in the nursing workforce and nursing education. These efforts resulted in the development of a "Tool Kit" to address this disparity. Additionally, a book authored by Dr. Hattie Bessent focused on Diversity and Inclusion of the Underrepresented Students of Color in Schools of Nursing was published. After five decades of research and calls for the support of under-represented students in nursing, there remains a lack of representation of students of color in schools of nursing. This presentation will discuss the continued lack of diversity in the workforce and present strategies that may be used by nursing educators to support under-represented students in nursing education programs.
