Learn About Black Nurses Through History

A Statement from Melody Eaton, Director & Professor - School of Nursing:

The School of Nursing engages in a culture of collaboration and respect. Our culture linked directly to diversity, equity and inclusion is moving from one of awareness to action. We commit to engage with communities, locally and globally, through inclusive, dynamic, and innovative nursing education, practice and scholarship to create health equity. The School of Nursing pledges to respond against discrimination, violence, and racism with advocacy and collective action.

The JMU School of Nursing celebrates the significant achievements of Black Nurses throughout our history.
