SUPPORT DIVERSITY, EQUITY, and INCLUSION
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion office is designed to assist in promoting an inclusive learning and workforce environment at FNU, with a goal to increase diversity in the nursing and midwifery professions by recruiting and retaining underrepresented students and employees. The Diversity Impact Conference is open to all students wanting to enhance and highlight cultural awareness trends within the field of healthcare.

APPLY TO BE A COURIER
The Courier Program began in 1928 to recruit young people to work in the Kentucky Mountains and learn about service to humanity. Couriers escorted guests safely through remote terrain, delivered medical supplies to remote outpost clinics, and helped nurse-midwives during home visits and births. Since that time, FNU has benefited greatly from more than 1,600 couriers. Today, the Courier Program is an eight-week, rural and public health, service-learning program with a rich and adventuresome history that targets college students with interest in public health, health care or a related field.
The FNU community is comprised of men and women from all walks of life with one common passion: improving the primary care of women and families. Read the stories of FNU alumni, students, preceptors, staff, faculty and couriers that are a part of this greater mission of serving the underserved. Listen to our podcast and delve deeper into FNU and the individuals who are making a daily difference in advanced practice nursing, midwifery, education, and healthcare across the country.
