Abstract

This article describes the application of the Collective Impact Model as an innovative conceptual framework for developing a pedagogical process for advancing academic success and retention for underrepresented nursing students. A more diverse nursing workforce is critical to promoting health equity and supporting a culture of health by providing access to culturally and linguistically appropriate care. By strategically applying this framework to a complex issue in nursing education, we discuss a process that may lead to increased academic success and NCLEX®RN pass rates for underrepresented students.
