The predominant educational model in nursing programs is to assimilate ethnically diverse nursing students into the mainstream so that students will acquire the knowledge and skills of both nursing and those of the dominant culture. However, using this model has been unsuccessful due to high attrition rates of these students. The literature in higher education suggests that one way to improve quality education is to increase the numbers of ethnic minority faculty in colleges and universities. The probability of this occurring in the near future in unlikely because of the limited number of ethnic minority students entering and completing nursing programs. The numbers of minority faculty in many nursing programs are inadequate to meet the needs of the ethnically diverse nursing student population. One way to solve the existing problem is to seek assistance from minority professional nursing organizations in the community. Nursing faculty from schools of nursing in partnerships with nurses from minority professional nursing organizations can together build leadership skills among ethnically diverse nursing students. This presentation features a baccalaureate-nursing program in partnership with a minority professional nursing organization to build leadership skills among ethnically diverse nursing students. It will highlight leadership activities and discuss the collaboration model for leadership development.
