is to convene alliances and develop programs around clinical, and policy measures to improve the quality of life for underserved, underprivileged, and underrepresented at-risk populations. We achieve our mission through education, research, and policy implications as these programs highlight the impact of the nursing shortage and leadership in the United States and its territories.

We hope you find the information here relevant and useful to you.  Since its inception, the National Black Nurses Foundation has been committed to:

  • Improving the quality of life for underserved and underrepresented populations;
  • Informing healthcare providers and health consumers to improve outcomes;
  • Stabilizing the healthcare workforce to improve healthcare delivery; and
  • Raising awareness through education.

The NBNF continues to pursue its vision to become a leading convener on consumer health by engaging clinical, policy, research, and community advocates to improve health outcomes and patient safety and enhance quality of life through awareness, information, and education.  We actively pursue ways to keep you informed about our activities.  Our website is one of the ways we do this and Facebook is another.

The Foundation is piloting an upcoming program titled “LifeBeat – A WebRadio Magazine” which focuses on providing consumer health information from clinical, policy, and community perspectives to assist health consumers in achieving change in behavior, improving quality and impact of care, and enhancing quality care improvement. 

Join our mailing list to ensure that you are included in future communications.

NBNF Presents...

Minding the GapThe national campaign, Minding the Gap: Improving Mental Health Access -- Eliminating Stigma is developed to engage communities to reduce the stigma associated with mental health. The campaign focuses on community levels of involvement that include clinical, faith-based, and policy perspectives in the face of improving mental health outcomes. Particularly, the program seeks to eliminate the stigma associated with mental health and to improve access to mental health services. Previous programs were held in Atlanta, Houston, New York, Philadelphia, and New Orleans. NBNF will hold its sixth community mental health program in Miami in September 2011.
