Alabama Surveys Nursing Programs to Track Diversity Metrics

The Alabama Health Action Coalition (AL-HAC) surveyed all accredited nursing programs in the state to establish a baseline and  track progress on increasing diversity among nursing students and faculty. AL-HAC worked with nursing school deans and directors to refine the questions, and disseminated the tool electronically. Findings from the survey showed that targeted recruitment efforts and mentoring programs positively affected enrollment of nursing students from diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds.
