Diversity of Graduates from Associate Degree in Nursing Programs Examined in Recent Publication

Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) programs contribute to a significant share of the registered nurse (RN) workforce. Public institutions contribute the highest total number of diverse ADN graduates, though private for-profit institutions have the highest percentage of non-White graduates. A new Nursing Outlook publication by UW CHWS authors, using data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System, provides details on ADN graduates by race/ethnicity and how these findings correlate to financial aid between 2012 and 2018. The UW CHWS team was led by Dr. Selina Mohammed, PhD, MPH, RN, Professor and Associate Dean for the UW School of Nursing and Health Studies at Bothell
