CARE Pathway to the BSN

The CARE (Collaboration, Access, Resources, and Equity) Pathway to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing is our investment in the future of nursing. By helping students from historically under-represented communities succeed in college, the Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing is helping create a more diverse nursing workforce and ultimately better patient outcomes. 

The CARE Pathway provides academic, financial, and socio-emotional support to BSN students of color. Our award-winning program has tripled in size since its launch in 2021 with a $2.2 million Health Resources and Services Administration grant, and continues to expand thanks to the generosity of committed donors.
