AACN Recognizes Frontier Nursing University for Advancing Diversity, Inclusion, and Sustainability in Academic Nursing.

Frontier Nursing University was announced as one of three recipients of the Diversity, Inclusion, and Sustainability in Nursing Education Leadership Awards presented annually by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN). FNU joined Augusta University (Georgia) and the University of Illinois Chicago in being recognized this year for their strong commitment to diversity, inclusion, health equity, cultural humility, and community outreach.

"I applaud the 2021 award winners for being intentional about making diversity, equity, and inclusion a cornerstone of their programs’ success," said Dr. Deborah Trautman, AACN President and Chief Executive Officer. "With a focus on adapting systems and changing culture, these programs serve as exemplars for other nursing schools moving to create academic environments that welcome and respect students, faculty, and staff of color."

Following a competitive process that was open to all 840 AACN member institutions, the winning schools were cited for their success in recruiting diverse students and faculty to their programs as well as creating inclusive and equitable learning environments. FNU received the Private Colleges and Universities Award. In the award announcement, AACN noted that "FNU is at the forefront as a leading activist for diversity in the nursing and midwifery professions. FNU has made diversity and inclusion a primary focus of the university’s mission and a measurable element of its progress."

"This is a tremendous honor for Frontier," said FNU President Dr. Susan Stone, CNM, DNSc, FAAN, FACNM. "While we are incredibly proud of the progress we have made to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion across all levels of our university, we recognize that we have much work still to do. We are fully committed to being an antiracist university and are grateful to be acknowledged as an example for others to follow."

FNU Chief Diversity Officer Dr. Geraldine Young, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC, CDCES, FAANP, presented at AACN’s 2021 Diversity Symposium, which was held on November 9 and 10 as a virtual event. Dr. Young also served as a Lectureship Award Panel member at the AACN 2021 Diversity Symposium presenting on "Integrating Anti-racism, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Nursing Education" to Mobilize and Strategize: Implementing DEI in Academic Nursing.

"The AACN has long been an advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion, so to be recognized by their Board of Directors in this manner is a tremendous accomplishment for Frontier," said Dr. Young, who accepted the award on behalf of the university. "This recognition of our progress only
strengthens our resolve to continue our meaningful work."
