White Paper - Holistic Admission: The What, Why, and Thoughts on the How
by Elizabeth A. Berro MA, RN, CHSE | July 15, 2022
Undergraduate nursing programs use holistic admissions to address diversity, equity, inclusion, and the worldwide shortage of professional nurses. In the new Kaplan Nursing white paper, "Holistic Admission: The What, Why, and Thoughts on the How," I stimulate a discussion about potential strategies to implement or improve the process.
DOWNLOAD "Holistic Admission: The What, Why, and Thoughts on the How" to read the white paper.
The white paper offers detailed information and analysis around:
- The challenges of implementing a holistic admission process
- How nonacademic attributes can help predict academic and career success
- How holistic admissions can create a more equitable admission process and a more diverse healthcare workforce
"Incorporating reliable and valid assessments of emotional intelligence, resilience, empathy, grit, or judgment creates a more equitable admission process and a more diverse healthcare workforce."
