Welcome to the Northern Connecticut Black Nurses Association’s website. We are glad that you took this opportunity to stop by to learn more about us.
As President of the NCBNA, I am dedicated to serving the organization to achieve our strategic vision and goals and embrace professional nurses from diverse nursing backgrounds. The broad nursing diversity of our Chapter brings a comprehensive view and perspective that respects the nursing knowledge and experience of nurses in Connecticut. One of my goals is to build a strong cadre of nursing leaders who will possess the leadership competencies that will maintain and propel the Chapter to higher levels of success. This includes sponsoring ongoing professional development and networking opportunities, mentoring and coaching, and leading by example.
The Chapter works collaboratively with many other health-related organizations and institutions, community partners, colleges and schools, and faith-based organizations. We continue to build these collaborations in order to effectively reach the populations that are most impacted by the lack of health care and health disparities.
Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in joining our dynamic organization, co-sponsoring a community event or fundraiser, or making a donation. We embrace and support nursing students financially, by offering scholarships to help defray the costs associated with pursuing higher education. Our scholarships are made possible by our event supporters and donors.
Hope to see you at our next event and remember, achieving your optimal health is our priority!
