Racial/Ethnic Diversity in Associate Degree Programs in Nursing


Associate degree programs in nursing (ADN) are said to provide an important entry point to diversifying the registered nursing field. However, little is known about the current racial/ethnic diversity of these programs, how it has been changing over time, and how it relates the sociodemographics of the overall institution. This study investigates the diversity of ADN programs and its correlates.
