Started by nurses, Nurses You Should Know is designed to raise awareness to the contributions of nurses of color.
The Nurses You Should Know team formed in December 2020 to envision a digital space to elevate the stories of nurses of color.
We believe nursing requires all of us to shape and transform the profession and improve outcomes for patients and communities.
Given the lack of space and attention towards the stories of nurses of color over the centuries, our editorial decision to highlight the contributions of nurses of color is designed to intentionally narrow the representation gap seen throughout the historical and present day nursing narrative.
