Nursing students from the University of Michigan-Flint’s two nursing organizations, SNA (Student Nurses Association) and BSN-2 (Black Students Achieving a BSN) combined their efforts to design and implement a Future Nurses Club. The goal of the program was to introduce nursing as a career option for minority middle school youths. Nursing students worked with nursing faculty, the Office of Service Learning at the University of Michigan-Flint, and the Flint Community School’s after school coordinator to plan and implement the program. The nursing students met twice a week for 7 weeks with 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in an inner-city school located near the University of Michigan-Flint. Nursing students created a multifaceted approach to recruiting and retaining middle school children to attend the Future Nurses Club. They began by advertising outside the lunchroom and individually speaking to students. News of the club caught on quickly and a variety of students attended. Nursing students designed a variety of hands on activities for the middle school students. Activities included career opportunities and educational requirements in nursing, how to take vital signs, an ambulance visit, and dissecting a cows heart to teach anatomy. The goals of the Future Nurses Club were met. The two nursing organizations were able to work together on a combined project. Student nurses were able to role model enthusiasm about the nursing profession. The middle school students were introduced to the University of Michigan-Flint and opportunities in nursing.
