Commission issues reports on racism in nursing

The National Commission on Racism in Nursing (NCRN) posted a series of six reports this month exploring racial bias in the nursing profession. The foundational report, The History of Racism in Nursing: A Review of Existing Scholarship, looks at the experience of Black, Asian, Native American and Latino nurses in the United States, from colonial days through the 20th century. The remaining five reports examine systemic racism in contemporary society as well as racism in the contexts of education, practice, policy and research. The reports may be read separately or downloaded as a single document. AONL Past President Mary Ann Fuchs, DNP, RN, sits on the commission, which produced the reports.
