What the ANA is doing to combat racism in nursing

Our second interview in honor of Black History Month is with Dr. Ernest Grant. Dr. Grant made history in January of 2020 when he became the first-ever male president of the American Nurses Association. Across his long and storied career, Dr. Grant has worked tirelessly to advocate for nurses and attract more people to the profession. 

In this conversation, he tells Dr. Nurse Dan about the ANA’s priorities for 2021, including how they are working with the new Biden administration and influencing policy in Washington. He also talks in depth about the role of nurses in the vaccine roll-out, what he’s hearing about nurses’ mental health and what he thinks the long-term impact of COVID-19 will be on the profession. 

Dr. Grant and Dan close out the conversation with details on the ANA’s latest project to combat racism in nursing — a project Dr. Grant says he hopes will be his legacy on the organization.
