Nursing whilst black

Nursing Whilst Black is part of a new podcast series being developed by the Royal College of Nursing. It aims to showcase the diversity of voices across nursing today.

In this series we asked nurses, healthcare support workers and students from Black, Asian 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. Ahead of the International Day of Disabled Persons on the 3rd December we will develop similar for diversely-abled nurses, students and healthcare support workers. We are also keen to develop the series to include the experiences of trans, LGB+ and many others. Please email Wendy.Irwin@rcn.org.uk if you would like to be involved and have ideas for the development of the series.
