The Diversity Impact Program (formerly the Diversity PRIDE Program) 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. It is through this growth and progress that FNU has been nationally recognized for preparing nursing and midwifery students to meet the healthcare demands of an increasingly diverse patient population.
