Over the past few years I’ve been working diligently while completely surrendering myself To a career that drives me the most. Through there are extreme challenges I face and obstacles I overcome, I am thankful for it all.
I am going into my last semester of nursing school with even a more clear vision of why I wanted to become a nurse.
Statistics have shown there is only 9.9% black nurses vs 75% white nurses in America. As a black American in this country this mean our voices are Not heard in the healthcare system.
Which is the reason why a higher percentage of black women die from giving birth due to issues like pre-eclampsia reasons like why breast cancer death rates is 40% higher in black Americans
And frankly why the underlying fear of the African/black American community even fear to seek healthcare today. Our voices must be heard throughout America
so young or old black Americans I challenge you to dive deep find your purpose be resilient and use your voice🖤
