2023 - $25,000

This funding will support the University of Connecticut School of Nursing in launching a program designed to address barriers to entry and completion of nursing education by students of color. The program will raise the visibility of the nursing profession to racially and ethnically diverse high school students and support these students, with discussions on topics including financial aid resources, career planning and advising, mentoring, health care issues affecting students’ communities, and health equity. The program is intended to help address the need to increase both the size and diversity of the nursing workforce in the state.
