The Summer Institute for Diversity in Nursing is a great way to see why nursing could be right for you! The Summer Institute brings you 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 to prepare you for the great lectures, skills labs, ACT preparation that you'll be able to take advantage of!  Also you will get to take tours of our labs, The James Cancer Hospital and The Ohio State University campus.

Did you know that Ohio State's College of Nursing has many life-like patient simulators? As part of the Summer Institute you'll be able to interact with them by using 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, juniors, and seniors who have submitted applications for undergraduate admissions to Ohio State. 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. To that end this hands-on program is one of the many ways we work to increase the number of historically underrepresented populations in nursing, including Black/African American, Native American, Asian, Hispanic and male.
