Nebraska Offers Diversity Toolkit

Check out the Nebraska Action Coalition’s Diversity Toolkit:

The need to diversify the nursing workforce in Nebraska is essential. The overall goal of this toolkit is to ensure a response in Nebraska that addresses the health care needs of an increasingly diverse population.

This toolkit is a product of NAC’s State Implementation Program (SIP) grant funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. It is a response to the call by the Institute of Medicine’s 2010 landmark report The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health.

Designed for use by students, employees/employers of health care organizations, second career/non-traditional prospects (those looking for a new career path), school nurses, teachers, school guidance counselors, and collegiate preparatory programs the toolkit seeks to increase interest in the nursing profession.

This resource, while broad, does not contain all possible sources of information and is meant to stimulate thinking about entrance into the nursing profession.
