The SCBNA is a new chapter of the National Black Nurses Association, located in Silver Springs, Maryland. The Founder and current President, Jacqueline Winston held the first meeting in November of 2018 at Panera Bread in Selden, New York. After sharing information on social media and word of mouth, a total of seven nurses attended the meeting. These nurses discussed the mission and vision for the SCBNA. They inspired each other on approaches to promote leadership and mentorship to other nurses. They also discussed methods on serving communities by providing, health screenings, information on health prevention strategies to help improve health outcomes of people of color. Another important goal is to provide student nurses with scholarships to acquire their education. As we continue to grow in members, we look forward to the opportunities to serve our communities.
