It is my pleasure to welcome you to our site. I hope that you will find information that will encourage you to become involved in our chapter. The National Black Nurses Association was established in 1971 as a professional organization committed to the development of a diverse nursing workforce through the support of nursing education, professional development and community service.
Our local chapter was founded in 1980 and actively embraced the National initiatives.
Over a half million dollars in scholarships have been provided to nursing students through our fund raising efforts. We have established a scholarship fund with the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and will be growing this effort as we prepare for our 40th anniversary in 2020.
We are poised to serve this year through our chapter and collaborative efforts with other community organizations such as the 400th Anniversary of African Americans in the United States Celebration, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. Epsilon Kappa Omega Chapter, The Hispanic Nurses Association, Association for Men In Nursing to name a few.
Professional licensed RN's,LPN's, nursing students, retired nurses and non-nurses are welcome to join us in service.
Again welcome! Hope to see you soon.
Karina Brown RN,BSN-C President
