Diversity Awareness Group (DAwGs)

Future Nurses Club


The mission of the Future Nurses Club is to provide mentorship from current UW nursing students to undergraduate students – especially underserved and underrepresented individuals who have not yet been admitted to the nursing program.


We serve as a bridge from current BSN students to undergraduate students interested in learning more about the field of nursing, getting involved in service-learning projects and connecting with other students with similar interests.

We support and advocate for future nurses regardless of race, ethnicity, citizenship status, religion, educational and socioeconomic status, disability, age, sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation.

Club objectives

  • Provide perspective and insight to help prepare and support Pre-Nursing students.
  • Advise students about the application process using information directly from the School of Nursing.
  • Expose prospective students to the roles of a nurse and their importance in the healthcare field. This includes meeting with current BSN students and nurses of various specialties.
  • Emphasize and encourage diversity within nursing by creating a safe space for open dialogue.
  • Collaborate through service-learning (UW Nurse CampMary Mahoney, high school students, community colleges, etc.)
  • Network with like-minded undergraduates; support peers through the process of applying.
