EDUCATION & MENTORSHIP

Atlanta Black Nurses Association is genuinely passionate about health outcomes, as it impacts so many people worldwide. We hold this issue close to our hearts, working day in and day out to find ways to improve the lives of our community. We have created The ABNA Mentorship Program, which is a comprehensive educational program that matches student nurses with veteran and senior nurses for mentorship. The relationships are built and fostered throughout the journey of the mentorship. The relationship begins at the beginning of nursing school, through graduation, and to the taking and completion of their state board exams to receive their Nursing Degree. 

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

The ABNA hosts numerous health fairs throughout the year that focus on chronic diseases that disproportionately have high percentage rates in the African American community. In addition, although more Whites are living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias than any other racial or ethnic group in the United States, older Black and Hispanic Americans are disproportionately more likely than older White Americans to have Alzheimer’s or other dementias.  As a result, Memory Screenings are a staple of ABNA health fairs' incorporation with Congressman David Scott. 

RESEARCH

The Atlanta Black Nurses Association (ABNA) is one of several chapters of the National Black Nurses Association that supports the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Research Program. All of Us is working to enroll at least one million individuals living in the United States to intentionally reflect the diversity of the country. Its goal is to improve health care through research by building a diverse database to inform research on a variety of health conditions. ABNA serves as a community partner and engages the Metro Atlanta area in events to help inform the community about the importance of the study and encourage enrollment.
