Black History Month & Nursing…part 2

The Faces of Mastered Prepared Black Nurses

Nursing organizations help propel you personally and professionally. There are countless professional nursing organizations available to join. I believe it’s important to not only be affiliated with a nursing organization, but of most significance to be an active member. Through membership you can receive information on best practices, journal/magazine subscription options, CE’s, networking, opportunities to attend conferences, advocate and access to various other resources. One of the most widely recognized nursing organizations is the American Nursings Association (ANA). In tribute to celebrating Black History month below are a few professional black nursing organizations to highlight. For additional information on each organization below – hover over the organizations name and click to be redirected to the organizations website.

Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Incorporated was organized in 1932 by Ailene Ewell, RN and 11 other Black nurses. The professional nursing organization developed based on concerns of Black nurses being restricted to segregated facilities and hospitals with low positions and little to no professional advancement opportunities. Chi Eta Phi is an international non-profit organization open to registered nurses and student nurses of many cultures and ethic backgrounds from the United States, District of Columbia, Saint Thomas, The US Virgin Islands, and Liberia. The mission: encouragement of the pursuit for continuing education, recruitment programs for health careers, stimulation of close and friendly relationship among members, development of working relationships with other professional groups, identification of a core of nursing leaders who affect social changes at the national, regional, and local levels.

National Black Nurses Association was founded in 1971 by 15 Black nurse leaders. It was lead by Dr. Lauranne Sams. She was the first African American hired in 1958 to the Indiana School of Nursing. Years later in 1974 she relocated to Alabama to become the Dean of the School of Nursing at Tuskesgee University. The founders organized the NBNA to help African American nurses. The organization quickly became incorporated as a non-profit in 1972. Today the NBNA spans across the globe with over 100,000 registered nurses from LPN’s, nursing students, and retired nurses from the United States, Eastern Caribbean and Africa. The mission statement is to represent and provide a forum for Black Nurses to advocate and implement strategies to ensure access to the highest quality of healthcare for persons of color.

Black Nurses Rock is a fairly new nursing organization, which started in 2014. Its founder, Dr. Romeatrius Moss a RN, MSN APHN-BC DNP. The organization has since incorporated in 2015 as a non-profit. Expanding internationally with over 150,000 nursing and nursing student memberships from the United States, Canada, Eastern Caribbean, Japan and Germany. Its’ mission statement is to inspire and empower innovative leaders that will serve and educate vulnerable communities.

The first professional nursing organization I joined was six years after becoming a registered nurse! I don’t know why I waited so long to join an organization, however I strongly encourage new graduate nurses to explore the list of professional nursing organizations and join within the first year and continue membership. Over time I’ve expanded my membership to a few other organizations (see my short list below).

  • Academy of Medical Surgical Nurses 2013 – 2015
  • American Nurses Association 2017 – present
  • North Carolina Nurses Association 2017 – present
  • American Organization of Nurse Executives 2018 – present
  • Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing 2018 – present

What nursing organizations (<-hover and click to be redirected to Nurse.Org for a list of organizations) or non-nursing organizations are you a member? Please share in the comments section below!
