The AACN's Call for Liberty and Justice for All states that we "must rally against pervasive inequities in society and move forward with empathy, inclusiveness, and collective action."
We at the Bronson School of Nursing hear this call to rally and are committed to fighting racial injustice. We recognize that we have failed to stand up and stand with our students of color, and we are committed to the fight against systemic racism. We are taking initiatives to better our understanding and recognize where we have ignored our call to collective action. We will actively pursue change within ourselves, our department and our community by being open to and learning from our students and communities of color. We will not stop until we have created a safe environment for our students, free of pervasive inequities.
Our programs are fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, and the school is one of only a few to receive endorsement from the American Holistic Nursing Certification Corporation. That assures that you'll receive a quality nursing education here at WMU.
