Oct. 11 — UC Davis nursing professor leads nationwide diversity workshop
Kupiri Ackerman-Barger, an assistant clinical professor with the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis, led a three-day workshop in Washington, D.C. The Diversifying the Nursing Workshop, Oct. 9-11, prepared nurses and educators to implement a mentoring program designed to increase diversity in the nursing workforce. The goal of the program is to improve retention, graduation and nursing exam pass rates among nursing students enrolled in traditional bachelor’s-degree programs at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Kupiri, whose research is focused on diversity in the nursing workforce, serves as a diversity consultant for the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action, a national initiative of AARP Foundation, AARP and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. In addition to facilitating the workshop, she also led two presentations, “Seeking Health Equity through the Success of Students at HBCUs,” “Understanding the Landscape at HBCU Schools of Nursing” and “Partnering for Success: HBCUs and Action Coalitions.”
