The nursing workforce does not represent the diversity of the United States population and while recruitment of diverse nursing students is high, so are their rates of attrition. The Nursing as an Additional Language and Culture Program (NALC) was implemented in an accelerated, second-degree baccalaureate nursing program to enhance retention by minimizing barriers and supporting activities to enhance student success. Results suggest that the NALC program was successful in decreasing the attrition rate of nursing students, including minority students.
