Breakthrough to Nursing (BTN) focuses on increasing the diversity of nursing by supporting and encouraging nontraditional nursing students. BTN works to expand the image of nursing by showcasing the different routes of becoming a nurse and bringing to light the different specialties within the field. We try to achieve this by reaching out to different students through high school presentations, skills demonstrations to volunteer programs, and community outreach. Our community outreach this year revolves around monthly themes that promote pertinent health care topics such as maternity health, children’s mental health awareness, suicide prevention and awareness, LGBTQ+, sexual education, and minority sexual health. We really encourage our committee members to take lead by allowing them to share their ideas and giving them the resources to make their ideas come to fruition.
GLOBAL INITIATIVES COMMITTEE Some of the events that you will be assisting us in this semester are the Study Abroad Night, Holistic Happy Hour, and our possible new idea of creating Cultural Menus!
