Start Your Provincial Chapter

Chapters exemplify CBNA’s vision: to be a leading organization dedicated to the service of the Canadian Black Nursing community by creating an enabling and capacity-building platform to propel nurses to professional excellence in all spheres of society.

Starting a CBNA chapter is really very simple! The Chapter Advisory Team has put together a chapter startup guide to assist you in starting a local chapter in your area. Your interest in starting a chapter is very important to us, and we want to help you in every way we can!

As Seen On

At CBNA we believe representation matters. Seeing Black Nurses in your field or aspired fields ignite the soul to believe it is possible, it is achievable. We are our greatest role models!

Hence, CBNA seeks to foster an alliance across Canada of Black Nursing leaders that cover the full spectrum of nursing. These Black Nursing leaders will foster mentorship relationships with aspiring Black Nurses and Black nursing students. This is not a simple task but we are committed to elevating nursing within the Black community by being at the various tables and arenas.

At CBNA mentorship starts with us. We have started this process with our CBNA-McMaster leaders.
