If you’re not making as much effort as @uaccn & @nahnnursing with their HRSA Grant to increase access to nursing education to URM & disenfranchised then I don’t want to hear anything from you about making making BSN the sole entry point for the profession now. #NurseTwitter
And because folks must love hearing me say it, ill say it again. I AM NOT ANTI-BSN (I have one and benefit from it) but I am wholeheartedly against plowing forward and leaving tons of my fellow minorities and disenfranchised folk behind for the sake of progress! #NurseTwitter
@uaccn and the @nahnnursing secured a HRSA Grant to not only provide Latina(o) ADN nurses with access to RN to BSN education, but provide ongoing mentorship,support them attending conferences, & more! Many schools don’t have access to such grants... but we can learn from this.
Are we putting in as much effort in our various communities to increase access to nursing education, particularly at the BSN level and higher? Because URMs and the disenfranchised still have disproportionate access to quality and affordable Bachelors education. #NurseTwitter
We have a good # of schools & organizations making SOLID & MEANINGFUL efforts to address the issue of equitable access to quality & affordable nursing education, but so many (more) that AREN’T@or aren’t doing enough, but will then want to flaunt studies that DEVALUE the ADN!
I will question ANYONE (PhD, DNP, Dean, those many years in nursing/academia, don’t care) that utters the word diversity & acknowledges the fact that equitable educational access is a continuing problem, but isn’t participating in making meaningful strides in addressing this.
We get report after report that tell us we need to prioritize diversifying the nursing workforce in all aspects (from clinicians and leaders to faculty and researchers) & not everyone is treating it as an EQUALLY important as ⬆️ the number of Bachelor & Graduate preparer Nurses.
