Project RiseCreate a sustainable community health clinical experience that allows students the opportunity to explore intersectionality
Project Rise: Research and Intersectionality in Student Education
Evidence supports the strong association between a culturally diverse nursing workforce and the ability to provide culturally empathetic care. Though nursing has made great strides in recruiting and retaining nursing students of color, we have not kept pace with the demographics of the populations we serve- more must be done to support representation. The overall goal of the RISE program is to create a sustainable community health clinical experience that allows students the opportunity to explore intersectionality in an effort to develop global citizens who are capable of providing culturally empathetic care. We aim to promote equity in service and global learning experiences in the College of Nursing; determine change in perceived cultural empathy for students of color and non-minority students participating in RISE; and determine perceived change in enlightened nationalism.
