Listen Again | 67: Nurses You Should Know

March 8, 2023


What if nursing’s professional origin story represented the contribution and stories of all nurses? Like many origin stories, nursing’s has overlooked, omitted or forgotten the contributions of many, but particularly nurses of color who have shaped the nursing profession and society in significant and enduring ways. How might having an inclusive, expansive history and nursing narrative impact the diversity, cohesion, safety, and performance of our health care teams and systems and in achieving our health equity goals? What if names like Mary Seacole, Hazel Johnson Brown, and Eddie Bernice Johnson were as familiar to reference as nursing icons, innovators, and game changers as Florence Nightingale? In celebration of International Women’s Day, and Women’s History Month, enjoy this episode, where we meet nurse innovators Ravenne Aponte, BA, BSN and Joanna Seltzer Uribe, RN, MSN, EdD (c) and their quest to introduce you to, in fun and sticky ways, NursesYouShouldKnow – and more importantly – WHY we should know them.
