            MENTORSHIP

Atlanta Black Nurses Association is passionate about cultivating future generations of nurses. We hold this issue close to our hearts, and work in many capacities to provide support to nursing students and new nurses. We have created The ABNA Mentorship Program, which is a comprehensive mentoring program that matches student nurses with veteran and senior nurses for mentorship. The mentoring relationship begins while the student is in nursing school, and extends through graduation, to taking state board exams, and transition into practice. The relationships that are built and fostered throughout the mentorship journey are the cornerstone of the mentoring program. 

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

ABNA hosts numerous health fairs and health screenings throughout the year that focus on chronic diseases that disproportionately affect the African American community. Chronic diseases that ABNA focus on include:

Blood pressure screenings and education, Memory screenings for at risk populations, COVID-19 testing, education, and vaccination. Breast exams annually in partnership with doctors from the community during Congressman David Scott Health Fair in Clayton County, Georgia.

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.
