The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing is committed to building and sustaining a diverse academic community of faculty, staff and students and to assuring that access to education and preparation is open to learners from all segments of society. The Nursing Science and Health-Care Leadership Admissions Committee acknowledges a particular responsibility to the diverse populations within the region. Faculty and leaders value diversity and inclusion and are committed to building and sustaining an academic community in which teachers, researchers and learners achieve the knowledge, skills and attitudes that appreciate and embrace inclusiveness, equity and cultural awareness as a way to unleash creativity and innovation.

In support of the overall mission and vision of the school, the admissions committee seeks to attract and admit students from diverse backgrounds with the potential for clinical excellence, advanced leadership or transformative research in an interprofessional environment.

The committee is dedicated to a holistic admission process to consider the experiences, attributes and academic metrics of each applicant and to recognize their unique potential as a future clinician, leader or researcher. The ultimate goal is to admit a culturally and cognitively diverse cohort of students for each program, whose interests are compatible with the vision of the school in order to leverage the university’s strengths in interdisciplinary learning, innovative technology, state-of-the-art evidence-based practice and transformative leadership.
