The KU Nursing Pathway Program provides educational and career support to high school students, particularly from underserved populations, and helps them excel in the study of nursing.

There are three phases to the KU Nursing Pathway program. The first phase will be to continue to support existing K-12 partnerships and pipeline programs that prepare students for health care careers and college. The KU School of Nursing has a goal of admitting up to 30 high school students to join the Nursing Pathway (there is no cost to the program for students and there is no obligation to attend KU.)

The second phase of the program for participating students starts at the beginning of the summer after high school graduation. KU Nursing Pathway advisors meet with participants to help them prepare for admission and enrollment at an accredited post-secondary college or university of their choice.

In the third phase, students who remain in the program throughout their first two years of college, attend at least 80% of Pathway-sponsored events and meet the KU School of Nursing minimum admission requirements are offered priority admission to the KU School of Nursing.
