4th Annual Nursing Workforce Diversity Conference

Madison, WI US
February 26, 2020

Health Equity in Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice

Join us at the 4th Annual Nursing Workforce Diversity Conference. Our theme this year is Health Equity in Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice.

The event kicks off with a career fair featuring employers from throughout Wisconsin. Conference sessions will inspire and address translation of research into evidence-based practice, strategies to use when approaching communities in engage in research, and the stigma of nursing research and scholarship.

The United States and Wisconsin population is rapidly diversifying. By 2040, racial and ethnic minorities will make up the majority in the United States. It is for this reason that the nursing workforce must work to intentionally recruit, retain, and graduate more nurses from diverse backgrounds. According to the Wisconsin Center for Nursing diversity report (2016), 95% of nurses in Wisconsin identify as white. According to the United States Census (2010), 79% of the Wisconsin population is white.

Research indicates that patient health outcomes are better when nurses share or have similar culture and linguistic backgrounds as their patients. Increasing workforce diversity and preparing all nurses to provide culturally competent care and advocate for diversity in the workforce can improve health and health outcomes for vulnerable or minority populations.

Elements of Competence

This educational activity is designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties’ area of professionalism, and Nursing areas of values/ethics for interprofessional practice and roles/responsibilities.

Learning Objectives

As a result of this educational activity learners will be able to:
  1. Explain the value of holistic student success in nursing   
  2. Discuss how to translate health equity research into evidence-based practice
  3. Identify strategies for engaging community perspectives and capacity to promote equitable health and care
  4. Describe opportunities in nursing research and evidence-based practice

Target Audience

This activity is designed for pre-nursing and nursing students, nursing faculty and staff, UW–Madison nursing alumni, practicing nurses, and others with interest in nursing workforce diversity and underrepresented populations.
