Chicago, IL | Founded in 2017, NursingInspired is a mentorship and educational program for ethnically underrepresented moreover African American youth high school students & young adults that seek to pursue a higher education & nursing career.
I am currently working with several young adults that are taking their prerequisites. The goal is to guide them with individualized preparatory "care plans" in their nursing school applications as well as group educational sessions.
In time, I seek to reach out to collaborate with various African American youth organizations and schools throughout the Southside of Chicago with educational programs, events and exposure to area nursing schools and organizations.
Thankful and Warm Regards,
Fallon M. Flowers, MSN, BS, RN
