Increasing the nursing profession’s diverse make up is thought to improve health disparities. To improve this diversity, it is essential for nursing students from diverse backgrounds to be successful in nursing school. The purpose of this phenomenological study using critical race theory for the framework was to discover racially and ethnically diverse students’ perceptions related to organizational factors impacting their success in an undergraduate nursing program. Organizational factors included the policies and practices at the course, department, and institutional levels. The aim of this study was to determine how nurse educators and schools of nursing can increase the diversity among practicing nurses. Participants who were nursing students identifying as racially or ethnically diverse were interviewed to understand their experiences in a nursing program. The findings suggested students require financial and faculty support. Themes related to stress, faculty support, and the Trump administration emerged from the interviews. Implications of the research suggest faculty need education about the unique needs of students from racially and ethnically diverse backgrounds. Additionally, faculty and administrators need to review their policies and general practices through the lens of nursing students from diverse backgrounds to increase the supportive climate of the organization. Recommendations include quantitative study to measure the impact of policies and practices intended to support students. Other recommendations include faculty development to educate faculty about supporting students from racially and ethnically diverse backgrounds.
