The Summer Institute for Diversity in Nursing is a great way to see why the profession of nursing could be right for you. This summer, come to The Ohio State University campus for four days of hands-on nursing experience. You’ll be equipped with scrubs, a stethoscope, a blood pressure cuff, and Ohio State gear. You’ll attend lectures, skills labs, ACT preparation, as well as take tours of our labs, The James Cancer Hospital and The Ohio State University campus. Come and interact with lifelike patient simulators and use state-of-the-art nursing tools to experience what it’s really like to be a student nurse.

The Summer Institute for Diversity in Nursing is for current high school sophomores and juniors, and seniors who have submitted applications for undergraduate admissions to Ohio State. This hands-on program aims to increase the number of historically underrepresented populations in nursing, including Black/African American, Native American, Asian, Hispanic and male. The College of Nursing is actively seeking to increase the diversity of the student population, so we can better serve the nursing profession and the nation’s health.
