Faculty Development to Meet Minority Group Needs: Recruitment, Retention, and Curriculum Change, 1971-74. Final Report.
A proposal to assist some Western Council on Higher Education for Nusing (WCHEN) schools in the development of programs for the inclusion of minorities was designed to impact on nursing education in the West by assisting schools of nursing faculty in the formation and expansion of programs for the recruitment and retention of ethnic students of color and to revise curricula to include diverse cultural perspectives. Forty-four schools of nursing participated in the project. Faculty development workshops with follow-up consultation formed the basis for providing information, experiences, and supportive guidance to two faculty members from each participating school. Some project results are: (1) pre-entry and post-entry programs that increase rates for retention, successful graduation, and licensure of their students; (2) curricula including basic information regarding the ethnic groups and their geographic areas; (3) increased enrollments of students and faculty from ethnic groups of color; and (4) activities that will continue in each school beyond the formal end of the project.
