FOUNDER'S MESSAGE

The idea of Black Nurses Week was a result of a painful and traumatic experience during a travel nurse assignment in 2017 when I was told that my natural hairstyle was “unprofessional”. I was confused, shocked, and heart broken. It took me six months to come to terms with what I actually experienced in an environment and profession that I loved to serve. I eventually decided to turn my pain into purpose. 

created Black Nurses Week to empower and celebrate the Black nursing community and the excellence we bring to the profession. I know that Black nurses have a powerful impact in reducing healthcare disparities and effectively advocating for patients of color in the healthcare organizations that we choose to serve. We are creative, innovative, and compassionate individuals that have a vital voice in contributing to the future of nursing. The challenges come when we feel as if we cannot thrive or be our authentic selves in our profession because of how we look or the color of our skin. 

The goal is to inspire and impact the lives of Black nurses through personal and professional development. I want to build a supportive community by curating events that provide education, resources, and guidance to allow us to excel in healthcare and overcome the challenges and barriers that is holding us back.
