The Medical College of Ohio Student Nurses’ Association in partnership with the Admissions Representative and selected faculty presented Breakthrough to Nursing (BTN), a National Student Nurses’ Association (NSNA) project, at a predominately African American high school in Toledo, Ohio. Purpose, goals, and objectives of the presentation were adapted and refined from the national BTN project. The purpose of this BTN presentation was to promote nursing among students of color at a predominately African American high school. Goals included helping participants attain a better understanding of nursing as a career; recognize varied professional opportunities; guide participants on high school preparation for baccalaureate nursing; instruct participants on importance of breast self-exam; and expose adolescents to current nursing students representing diversity in ethnicity, age, and gender. Presentation objectives included interactive discussion on high school students’ perceptions about nursing and what nursing is like today; viewing a rap video, “It’s Your Body: Check Yourself Out”; participation in a game called “Who Wants to be a Nurse?”; sharing from nursing students and faculty about why they chose nursing; discussion of specific math and science courses to complete in high school; and sharing information on how to know if you want to become a nurse. The BTN presentation was provided to five classes of 10th grade biology students, approximately 90 students total. Seven baccalaureate nursing students, four faculty, and the Admissions Representative participated. The presentation received glowing comments from student participants and an invitation to make this an annual event.
