Addressing Racism in Nursing, Part 1 of 2

On episode 381 — the first in a 2-part series — of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Dr. Rumay Alexander, EdD, RN, FAAN; Dr. Laura Fennimore, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, CNE,FAAN; and Dr. Debra Toney, PhD, RN, FAAN, all members of the National Commission to Address Racism in Nursing. In the course of this episode, Keith and his three esteemed guests discuss a wide range of topics related to structural systemic racism, the purpose of the commission, definitions of important terms, how racism impacts both nurses and patients, potential solutions, and much more.

On January 25, 2021, leading nursing organizations launched the National Commission to Address Racism in Nursing. The Commission examines the issue of racism within nursing nationwide focusing on the impact on nurses, patients, communities, and health care systems to motivate all nurses to confront individual and systemic racism.

The Commission members and organizations represent a broad continuum of nursing practice, racially and ethnically diverse groups, and regions across the country. The Commission is led by the American Nurses Association (ANA), National Black Nurses Association (NBNA), National Coalition of Ethnic Minority Nurse Associations (NCEMNA), and National Association of Hispanic Nurses (NAHN).Before joining forces to address racism in nursing, the organizations that make up the National Commission to Address Racism (the Commission) have for years raised their individual voices to condemn all forms of racism within our society and health care system.
