Addressing Racism in Nursing, Part 2 of 2

On episode 382, the second in a 2-part series of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews Daniela Vargas, MSN, MPH, MA, RN, PHN; Ruth Francis, MPH, MCHES; and Cheryl Peterson, MSN, RN, all members of the National Commission to Address Racism in Nursing. In the course of this episode, Keith and his esteemed guests discuss the American Nurses’ Association reckoning with its own structural racism, data from the commission’s National Survey on Racism in Nursing, the commission’s foundational report, 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.
