At CBNA we believe representation matters.

Seeing Black nurses in your field or aspired fields ignites 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.
