Making your unit safe for nurses of color

2020 has been a pivotal year for discussions about race and many of these important conversations have spilled over into healthcare, forcing those of us who work in this industry to reckon with how we care for patients and how we treat our coworkers of color. 

Our guest for this episode is Ashley Sayles, a pediatric nurse practitioner living and working in Baltimore. Ashley has been very open about her brushes with racism and her experience being the only black nurse on her unit.

In this conversation, she shares invaluable insights and advice to nurse leaders on how to create more equitable and inclusive workplaces and guidance to nurses who want to be allies for the nurses of color on their units. Ashley also shares how 2020 has been a turning point for her and other black nurses and the changes she’s witnessed as a result of the growing Black Lives Matter movement.
