In this first, and what will become many, event we hosted 12 dynamic nurse speakers from a variety of specialties in over a dozen sessions. In this full, 3-day event, attendees consumed sought-after content, had the opportunity to network, and took the very notes they needed to leave our event inspired to take action.

A Message from the Founder

Black Nurses Week was created to elevate and unify the Black nursing community. We 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 all aspects of society. Our goal is to ensure that Black nurses have a seat at the table where our voices are heard when decisions are being made concerning the future of nursing.

There is power in Black nurses coming together. Join us for the movement.
