The goal of the SNBNA is to practice our motto: "Black Nurses Nuturing the Community". We have heightened
awareness of modifiable risk factors for diseases that disproportionately affect the minority community through an increase
effort to work collaboratively with other organizations and groups whose focus is on health care. We have been
ab le to accomplish this task through numerous community presentations and participation on many committees and health fairs.
The provision for the enjoyment of optimal health
is the birthright of every American. Major health interest groups and governmental agencies believe that and act upon
Yet, Black Americans, along with other minority groups in our society, are
by design or neglect are excluded from the means to achieve access to health care services of mainstream America.
Therefore, we as Black Nurses have established a national organization to investigate,
define and determine what the healthcare needs of Black Americans are, and implement changes that will make available to Black
Americans and other minorities healthcare commensurate with that of the larger society.
Black nurses have the understanding, knowledge, interest, concern and experience to make a significant difference in the healthcare
status of the Black community.
