Nursing whilst black
Nursing Whilst Black is a podcast series that aims to showcase the diversity of voices across nursing today.
In this series we asked nurses, healthcare support workers and students from Black and minority ethnic backgrounds to share their thoughts, reflections and insights on their lived experiences of working in healthcare and provide some recommendations about how we can all be better equipped to tackle issues of race and racism in the profession.
We will be working to add many more voices and experiences to this resource. We are also keen to develop the series to include the experiences of trans, LGB+, disabled and neurodiverse nurses. Please email Wendy.Irwin@rcn.org.uk if you would like to be involved and have ideas for the development of the series.
