The 2017 admissions period for the Yale School of Nursing occurred at a time of challenging organizational transition, with over 650 applications received and a four-month gap in supervisory leadership. During this period, Esposito played a critical role in managing the admissions process all while improving the student application experience and significantly contributing to achieving the school’s strong applicant pool and yield. The entering class is the most diverse to date for the school.
