Diversity in Nursing Association (DNA) Seeks New Members

The Diversity in Nursing Association (DNA) is the only nursing student organization that is diversity-oriented. As a group, we work to increase diversity within Kent State University College of Nursing through peer and faculty support. Our focus is on community building, professional development, and mentorship.

“I joined DNA because I wanted to be part of a student organization that helps to increase diversity within the college,” said DNA secretary, Kayshawn Wade. “I also wanted to find a way to step out of my comfort zone and help other students break out of theirs as well.”

Throughout the year, DNA hosts social and community-oriented events, along with their diversity-focused activities. Events have included guest speakers, such as Daniel Nilsson from the Diversity Outreach Program, clothing drives for Haven of Rest, participation in Flashathon, and holiday-themed get-togethers.
