From Your President
Greetings Colleagues!

I would like to start by saying how honored and proud I am to be serving as the current President of the Milwaukee Chapter National Black Nurses Association, Inc. (MCNBNA). I count it a blessing to be among the legacy of great women that have served before me. Our chapter has a rich history in the Milwaukee community and I want ensure that I do my part in adding value. I am currently on the Heart and Vascular leadership team at Froedtert and The Medical College of Wisconsin.

MCNBNA is a part of the National Black Nurses Association (NBNA) www.nbna.org. Annual national conferences allow members from around the globe to come together to share in rich learning opportunities, gain updates in healthcare practices as well as receive a rich cultural experience. Our national president and national office staff are personable and supportive.

I am often asked “what are the benefits of membership to the MCNBNA professional organization”. I answer with the following:

Our membership has some of the most talented, educated and driven nurses within this city or the nation. Among our members one will find deans of colleges, vice presidents, PhDs, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialist, educators, entrepreneurs, managers, hospital administrators, award winners, board members, staff nurses and students. We meet monthly to ensure that we stay focused on both our local and national strategic priorities. We have visibility in the community and are passionate about our mission. We publish in peer review journals, write chapters and books and have a formal mentoring program which focuses on students. We do poster and podium presentations both locally and nationally. We offer study sessions for state board exams. We have provided thousands of dollars in graduate and undergraduate nursing education scholarships. We volunteer in the community, teach the public and influence health policy.

Moving forward, we will be having monthly student forums in which we will focus on key education needs of undergraduate students. Lastly, we support each, laugh together, love and share each others burdens. Definitely, membership has its benefits and our membership is growing.

As nurses, we are well aware of the impact this profession can have on public trust, population health, community health consciousness, health policy and growing the next generation of nurses. MCNBNA is committed to supporting efforts to decrease morbidly and mortality of multicultural communities.

It is my hope that if you are not already of member of this historic professional organization, that you will consider joining. We need you, we want you and our community depends on you.

Sincerely,

Sharron Coffie MSN, RN, CNS-BC, CHFN
