The YSN Office of Diversity and Inclusion aims to provide programming for career advancement for students, early career faculty, and postdoctoral fellows that include initiatives such as:

(a) a one week summer intensive for early career faculty that will require national application;

(b) a Visiting Diversity Scholar Program;

(c) scholarship and pilot research funding for minority students, postdoctoral fellows, and early career faculty;

(d) faculty recruitment activities;

(e) a speaker series engaging distinguished minority thought leaders; and

(f) faculty retention efforts.   

These efforts and programming will be utilized to support the mission of the YSN Office of Diversity and Inclusion, which is to create a pipeline of diverse nurse scholars, practitioners, and educators that will enrich and contribute directly to a diverse YSN and indirectly to the national academic nursing workforce.

To learn more about each Initiative, please browse the offerings on the left hand side menu.
