Short-Term Outcomes of a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Institute for Nursing Faculty.



Student populations in the United States are increasingly diverse, prompting the need to make learning environments in schools of nursing more inclusive. Training for faculty is needed to support this work; however, evidence regarding best practices to make classrooms more inclusive is lacking.


A 3-day Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Institute was developed and conducted to create inclusive learning environments; facilitate crucial conversations on racism and other -isms, especially in the context of nursing and health equity; and practice these skills and develop or transform at least one actual class activity.


DEI Institute satisfaction and impact were overwhelmingly positive, and statistically significant increases in DEI-related teaching self-efficacy were observed post-Institute (p values ranging from .0004 to < .0001).


The DEI Institute is one example of a successful approach that can create inclusive learning environments and address issues related to health equity. [J Nurs Educ. 2019;58(11):633-640.].
