According to the 2018 Nursing Demographics report,
only 11.5% of nurses identify as Black or African American.
In a 2017 National Nursing Workforce Survey the average age of a registered nurse (RN) is 51 years old. The report also showed that in "age distribution by Race/Ethnicity—RN" data also shows that Black/African Americans are older
by percentage beyond the age of 30.
Nursing programs in the U.S. are starting to
compete for the top minority students according to
Diverse- Issues in Higher Education (2018).
With this students can evaluate schools on how many
African American nursing students they are graduating.
It needs to start with Black youth
and NursingInspired LLC
seeks to make the difference!
The types of nursing school applicants of tomorrow need to be and deliver:
Now more than ever is the e.p.o.q.u.e. of recognizing, that the lives of black patients matter and that nurses matter too.
The shortage of nurses and those that are black, needs to improve so that, those patients can be cared for
"by someone that looks like you." We want to inspire youth into a career in nursing as the next generation of black nurse leaders!
