Purpose: The purpose of Cultivating Practices for Resilience (CPR) was to develop, implement, and evaluate college-wide strategic initiatives to promote wellness and resilience and improve mental health outcomes in baccalaureate nursing students. Design and Methods: Six hundred and fifty-four students were invited to complete a 24-item survey over 3 weeks in 2021. Descriptive statistics/logistic regression were used for data analysis. Findings: One hundred and thirty-one students completed the survey; 61% were sophomores. White students (p = 0.024) and males (p = 0.023) had higher intentions to refer colleagues to mental health services. Those perceiving CPR programming more helpful had higher intentions to refer (p < 0.001) and embrace the ANA's Healthy Nurse Healthy Nation™ campaign (p < 0.001). Practice Implications: Stronger strategic efforts are needed to help shape an academic culture for cultivating practices for resilience among baccalaureate nursing students, especially females and underrepresented population groups.
