Wisconsin Action Coalition Updates Statewide Diversity Efforts

The Wisconsin Center for Nursing (WCN), co-lead for the Action Coalition completed its update of state efforts to increase nursing diversity. The recent publication, Diversity in Wisconsin Nursing: Exemplars of Progress, highlights thirty programs & activities going on in schools and health systems across the state to increase diversity in the nursing profession in our state. Exemplars provide program models and approaches for others to emulate in their own organizations. This project was done as an update the 2013 Wisconsin Diversity Taskforce Project, which published its survey results in Enhancing Diversity in the Wisconsin Nursing Workforce and  also to bring together efforts in enhancing diversity in a cohesive and systematic way throughout the state.
