Peer Support Network

An anonymous, student-monitored survey. See the flyer for more info.

The "Making it Possible" Project

We believe that providing resources to a diverse set of students in need will facilitate the expansion of diversity and equity in nursing. We are actively fundraising $5000 to provide supplies for 25 students at the CON who might otherwise have to borrow money, work a second job, or attempt to cope without optimum materials to succeed in nursing school.  This money will be used to purchase necessary materials like Chromebooks, printers, Turning Point/Responseware subscriptions, textbook access, codes, and clinical supplies for students. For more information about this project, or to donate to this project, please click on the making it possible project image adjacent to this blurb.


                                             Used Textbook Drive

Future Voices is currently organizing a used textbook exchange.

Outgoing students can donate their textbooks to the FV textbook bank, and we will then re-home the textbooks with a new student who identifies that they are in need of assistance.

To request textbooks, please fill out this survey before May 4, 2021:

Petition to Induct Zippy Parks Hammond Into the Colorado Women's Hall of Fame

Zipporah Parks Hammond (Zipppy) was the first black woman to be accepted into and graduate from the University of Colorado's College of Nursing. She was the only black student in a class of 29 white students. Her perseverance and dedication to nursing helped Zippy fight her way through racism and adversity to complete her education and establish her career. Zippy had an extensive career in Colorado, and loved and cared for her community. Zippy's two sons have nominated her for the Colorado Women's Hall of Fame five separate times without success... THIS is the year to give Zippy her well-deserved recognition for all her hard work in paving the way for Black Indigenous Nursing Students of Color that came after her. We believe in joining our collective voices with her sons at this pivotal moment, and we have created a petition to get Zippy the recognition she deserves. Please click the adjacent image of Zippy to sign the petition! Visit this website to learn more about Zippy's life and career:

This program requires a maximum commitment of 3hrs per month of mentees, who must be active members of Future Voices.
