Reaffirming Our Commitment to Diversity and Equity

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to rule against affirmative action, thereby striking down the ability of schools to consider race as part of the admissions process, does not negate the need to continue building a nursing workforce as diverse as the people our health care institutions serve.

Today’s ruling does not diminish our commitment to educating a diverse nursing workforce that is critical to ensuring quality health care and promoting health for everyone, everywhere. Penn Nursing remains steadfast in its mission to promote equity, advance science, demonstrate practice excellence, and prepare leaders—from all walks of life—in the discipline of nursing.
