Advancing Health Equity through Student Empowerment & Professional Success (HealthE STEPS)

OHSU School of Nursing has been awarded a special grant to enroll, empower and graduate students from backgrounds typically underrepresented in Nursing, including students from ethnic and racial minority groups, to improve health equity within our communities through professional nursing practice.

Failing to Fail in Schools of Nursing:
A Qualitative Exploration

Angela Docherty, Nurs.D.,M.P.H., RN, Assistant Professor at our Monmouth campus received the Dorothy Otto Research Award grant from the National League for Nursing (NLN). This grant is one of NLN's Nursing Education Research Grants. The funding is for one year to allow her to look at the issue of grading practices. It is a follow up to a survey she did last year looking at 'failing to fail' across a number of nursing schools.
