Leading Nursing Organizations Launch the National Commission to Address Racism in Nursing

Atlanta, GA – The National Commission to Address Racism in Nursing (the Commission) will examine the issue of racism within nursing nationwide and describe the impact on nurses, patients, communities, and health care systems to motivate all nurses to confront systemic racism. Aiming to lead a national discussion, the Commissions’ goal is to explore the experiences of nurses of color, while understanding the impact of systemic racism and to develop an action-oriented approach across the spectrum of education, practice, policy, and research.

Led by American Nurses Association (ANA), National Black Nurses Association (NBNA), National Coalition of Ethnic Minority Nurse Associations (NCEMNA), and National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN). The Commission members and organizations represent a broad continuum of nursing practice, ethnically diverse groups, and regions across the country.
