Increased Resources for Diversity at SON

Associate Professor Pamela Johnson Rowsey, PhD, RN, was awarded a grant by the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) to increase the level of student diversity in the School of Nursing’s programs.

The three-year, $640,000 project, Careers Beyond the Bedside, aims to increase the number of undergraduate students from historically underrepresented ethnic minorities — including African Americans, Hispanics and American Indians — by 40 percent. Drs. Rumay Alexander, Beverly Foster, Cheryl Giscombe, Shawn Kneipp, Vicki Kowlowitz, and Ms. Julie Page will work with Dr. Rowsey to fulfill this mission.
